Ziad Jarrah clearly hesitates in some scenes especially before the plane is hijacked. He even sweats as the plane was about to crash due to being under pressure. In real life Ziad unlike the other hijackers was hesitant to go through with the attacks and was apparently less involved with the attacks than the rest of the Hamburg Cell. He also had a girlfriend as well as he phoned her one last time before boarding United 93 and kept in touch with her before 9/11 which questioned his loyalty to the Hamburg Cell. See more
During the overview of the Newark airport in the beginning, an air traffic controller wears a blue lanyard that says "Transportation Security Administration," with an American flag dafter "Transportation". The Transportation Security Administration was formed under the Aviation and Transportation Security Act, which was signed into law on November 19, 2001. Most 2001 roll-out supervisors at TSA have these lanyards for airport identification cards. An ATC could own a lanyard, as it is understandable that the lanyards would be distributed among airport operations personnel. See more

Ziad. It's time.
The very last line of closing credits states that the movie was "not sponsored by, or in any way affiliated with, United Airlines." See more
