Well I didn't write this because I think he wasn't on the plane. He was on the plane as we are shown during the episodes that follow.
But he was so relaxed in all the chaos. And didn't say anything.
And I didn't notice that when I watched it the first time.
So watching this first pilot a second time wasn't that great, because there is only one thing that I noticed that I didn't remember from watching it a single time.
