Shatner realizing that he didn't book with Priceline.com (Yes, another Priceline joke)
The Horror at 37,000 Feet (link here)
Wow, I have to see this movie now. When you mix William Shatner with Chuck Connors and Paul Winfield, you have a pure camp movie. Seeing William Shatner getting blown out of an airplane might be the real reason to watch this movie.
Shatner also did that famous episode of the Twilight Zone with the monster messing around with the airplane, so I guess it was fitting to have him in this movie.
You can watch it on YouTube right now, because I don’t think anyone wants to claim copyright at the moment.
And, the title seems to be a play on the title of the Twilight Zone episode “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet”
That episode is still a classic and I still get chills with the Shatner version. Oh, and the movie remake version is pretty good too.
Richard Donner, the same director that directed the Superman movie and Lethal Weapon series, directed this Twilight Zone episode. Shatner is restrained a bit in the role compared to some of his other roles.
It is kind of tragic that he actually is an unsung hero, but everyone sees him as being crazy.

Drinking to forget your musical album I see.
