Suffice it to say the Zuckers borrowed rather heavily from the former (1957) movie for theirs, even including some of the more laughable quotes:
"How did they get sick?"
"That's not important right now."
"I picked the wrong week to quit smoking."
They even had a sick little boy (although I didn't see a girl telling him she liked her coffee "black, like my men" or being asked about "movies with gladiators in them" by the pilot) and a screaming, panicky passenger.
