Does anybody know if Airplane! ever appeared as an in-flight movie?

Doubtful, but this post (http://www.blogsouthwest.com/2006/08/04/whats-the-vector-victor/) on the Southwest Airlines blog shows that it's a favorite among pilots.

I remember seeing 'Airplane' in the theaters -- It's the only movie I can recall laughing so hard that I would have paid the projectionist $10 to stop for a couple of minutes in the middle and let me recover. My cheeks hurt from laughing so long!

I liked when the little girl got her coffee and said "the same way I like my men.":eek: :D

"I like my coffee black... Like my men."
Anyone else see She's The Man? My friends and I were watching it the other day and one of them just screamed "That's the chick from Airplane!!! The Mom! That's her!" And darn it if she wasn't right :)

"You'd better tell the Captain we've got to land as soon as we can. This woman has to be gotten to a hospital."
" A hospital? What is it?"
"It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now. "

"What do you make of this?"
"I can make a paper flower or a hat or a pterodactyl!"

"What did the plane look like?"
"Well, it was big and white, with red stripes on the side and curtains in the window... It looked like a big Tylenol!!"

I remember at the beginning of the movie "Get Shorty" they had a scene where one of the characters was sitting at the airport bar and through the windows this plane crashed into a ball of flames.
On the in-flight edition, the view through the window (of now presumably a train station) had been blue-screen changed to a crashing train locomotive!
Doubt they were showing that version on Amtrak!

We'll likely never know unless someone actually saw it an airplane and posts the experience here. :)
Back then, I'm pretty sure only 747's, and a few other large aircraft, had in-flight movies. They weren't as common as they are now.

I wonder the same thing about the upcoming "Snakes on a Plane". Are they going to have the world premeire on a flight, like from LA to NYC? Which airline would allow that? How would homeland security react to a bunch of celebrities on a plane, watching "Snakes on a Plane"? How do I get tickets? :~D
