Here is one of my biggest issues with that film:

WARNING: "Flighplan" spoilers below
With all this planning that these clowns were doing, why on earth would they leave the idea of nobody seeing the little girl up to chance?

How were they to guarantee she was not gonna be seen when Foster and her first got on board. How did they know they would be the first to board? How did they know that not one person wouldn't ever see her in her seat as they got up to go to the bathroom or get something out of their suit cases etc. How did they ever get her to the hiding spot that they used for her while again being assured, not one soul on board would get a glimpe of her?
It was all so ridiculous in my book.
