Tupolev Tu-204[]

The main aircraft featured in the film is Tu-204SM registered RA-54151 (serial 64151), painted in the colors of a fictitious airline Pegas Avia (the actual plane is owned by Tupolev company). A CGI model was used in some scenes.

Tupolev Tu-154[]

A Tu-154M reg. RA-85796 (serial 94A980) is burning in a fictional Kanwoo airport. The plane, which was destroyed in the filming process, was previously owned by Kosmos Airlines, hence the name of a fictional air carrier Osmo made up by removing the first and the last letters in the word "Kosmos" of original livery. The filming of the Kanwoo disaster scene took place in Zhukovsky airport.

Boeing 737-800 VQ-BUL (s/n 41707) near Vnukovo terminal. The scene was digitally altered to “paint” this UTair aircraft (which has mostly white livery with grey lower part of fuselage) into Pegas Avia colors. This also presents a break in continuity, as Tu-204SM appears in all other sequences of this scene.

Boeing 747-400[]

Transaero’s Boeing 747-400 in the lower part of the screenshot. All markings of Transaero were digitally removed everywhere throughout the film, most likely due to them not buying an advertising contract. The airline was still in existence during filming, but was already defunct when the movie was released.
