Oceanic Airlines, Oceanic Airways or Oceanic Air is an airline company most prominent in Lost but featured in several other media. The various media that Oceanic Airlines appear in do not have a connection with each other, the airline company is mostly used as a nod to Lost or appears due to the reuse of stock footage.

Overview Edit

Before Lost, the most prominent use of Oceanic Airways was in the 1996 film Executive Decision. The film's producers shot extensive footage of two actual Boeing 747s with Oceanic Airways logo and livery (but not the same logo used later on Lost). This stock footage has been reused in several films and television programs, spreading the Oceanic Airlines brand across various otherwise unrelated fictional universes.

In the episode "The President's Fitness Test", Barry falls in love with Erica's French Pen Pal, who comes visiting. When she leaves, Barry follows her to the airport, to Oceanic Airlines' terminal.
