Ryan Bingham is a corporate downsizing expert whose cherished life on the road is threatened just as he is on the cusp of reaching ten million frequent flyer miles and just after he's met the frequent-traveler woman of his dreams. Written by
The card, with which Alex (Vera Farmiga) is so impressed (that Ryan Bingham has), is the American Airlines invitation-only Concierge Key. After the film was completed, Jason Reitman was invited into the program. Started in 2007, it helps members arrange for reservation changes, upgrades, and even airport meetings. It is sent to selected customers, and since it is not advertised, some travelers consider it a rumor. See more »
In a couple of rental car scenes, Ryan is seen handing his credit card to an attendant, and in one scene asked (as he drove off) for his #1 Club Gold Card. Hertz #1 Club Gold members generally do not have to show a credit card or their #1 Club Gold card - they just walk right to their car, get in, and go. Hertz has their credit card info on file, and when they return the car, they are simply handed their receipt - there is nothing to sign for. See more »
This film is about a man who fires people for a living. His world becomes upside down when his job is radically changed by a newly recruited young fresh graduate.
"Up in the Air" is a well made film. The plot focuses on character development and emotional changes of the characters. It is not easy to make characters interesting and memorable, but "Up in the Air" does just that. Both the characters of George Clooney and Anna Kendrick have strongly divergent attitudes and personalities, but they have great chemistry and change each other slowly but surely. How they radically shake each others core belief is engagingly told. I enjoyed watching "Up in the Air" a lot, as it tells an engaging story of self discovery.
