Burt Lancaster and Dean Martin head an all-star cast in this classic disaster film from producer Ross Hunter, for which Helen Hayes received her second Oscar. On the ground, manager Mel Bakersfield (Lancaster) juggles lover Jean Seberg and wife Dana Wynter while coping with a blizzard, aided by mechanic George Kennedy. In the sky, Capt. Vern Demerest (Martin) must maintain control of a 707 with his pregnant stewardess girlfriend (Jacqueline Bisset), a sly stowaway (Hayes), and a bomb-toting maniac (Van Heflin) aboard. Often imitated but never equalled, this box office hit was adapted by Academy Award winner George Seaton from the bestseller by Arthur Hailey.

This is the first and probably the best of the Airport disaster movies made in the 1970's. Although it's probably a little dated now, this still makes for an extremely entertaining movie with a great cast. The Blu-ray transfer is excellent and a great improvement on the DVD. Highly recommended.
