Contrary to popular belief, Samuel L. Jackson's agent insisted that the title be changed, because Jackson "couldn't" work on a film with such a title. When Jackson heard about all of this, he responded with the much cited comment, "We're totally changing that back. That's the only reason I took the job. I read the title." See more »
(at around 1h 27 mins) If the aircraft did in fact undergo catastrophic decompression as shown, the cabin air would go milky white for a few seconds. This is due to the reduced pressure in the atmosphere bringing the moisture in the cabin to a point where it is visible, like when opening a soda can and seeing a brief flash of visible vapor.

An Event you'll Remember, A Movie You'd Rather Forget
The best review of the film portion of this movie is from the Onion AV Club. It sums up Sam Jackson's performance as "done on his lunchbreak while filming a lesser degrading film". And yet, he's the best dang part of the whole thing. What this movie needed was more of him vs. the Snakes which never reaches the insanity of a "Dead Alive" and instead fizzles out in one of the lamer endings in recent cinemadom. You get snakes, on a plane. And some great B- horror moments that'll make you laugh, but this is not a cult classic. Despite people's want for a cult classic here, it's far too normal for that. Instead check out the aforementioned "Dead alive" (aka Brain Dead) or Tsui Hark's hilariously straight "Knock Off" with Van Damm & Rob Schneider. THOSE were bad good flicks this is one is just ho-hum.
On the other hand, the audience is hot for Snakes. As stephanie from salon.com says, if you're going to see Snakes, do so now with the packed evening screenings. People throwing rubber snakes, reciting sam's line and making hissing noises throughout makes for theme park ride levels of fun.
