Having been captured by the Dharma Initiative on the island in 1977 after being mistaken for a "hostile", Sayid meets a young Ben Linus who offers to help him escape, while Sawyer and the Dharma members try to interrogate him for information. Sayid flashes back to his days as an assassin for Ben who releases him from his contract, and how Sayid later met the manipulative adult Ben in Dominica who persuaded him persuade him to return to the island, and how Sayid met Ilana, a private investigator/contract killer, who abducted him to return to Australia for his past crimes.

In the flashback at the bar, Sayid is drinking McCutcheon's, the same Scotch Charles Widmore had in his office and at his bedside, and that Charlie and Hurley used to get Desmond drunk on the island. See more
In the crash-landing scene, the co-pilot is screaming "Mayday" in his microphone. Airline pilots are very well trained to handle such situations and it is very unlikely for a pilot to be panicking and screaming while he actually has a lot of things to do, helping the captain to land the plane and telling the people he's calling about the problem and their coordinates, to name a few. Also instead of just sitting there he should be reaching for the airplane manual to find out what to do in case of both engines stalling. See more
