Time Out says

A routine Airport-style thriller, with Heston as the pilot whose nerves are battered when the 707 he's flying from LA to Minneapolis is discovered to have a bomb on board, ready to explode unless he agrees to head for Moscow. The skyjacker is a disgruntled Vietnam veteran (Brolin), but the film is much too busy with its disaster movie routine (pregnant lady giving birth, and so forth) to make anything of this. Only a highly professional cast alleviates the general predictability and tedium.
