Neal Sampat (Dev Patel) incorrectly references the the Emergency Broadcast System (EBS) which was replaced with the current Emergency Alert System (EAS) in 1994.
The establishing shot of the plane carrying Don, Elliot and Sloan from Washington DC (DCA) to New York's LaGuardia Airport (LGA) shows a 747 with its recognizable second level "bump". The runways at LGA are too short for a 747. The interior of the plane has six-across seating typical of the smaller 737s that actually do operate between DCA and LGA.
Don, Elliot and Sloan are sitting in economy class seating flying between Washington DC and New York's LaGuardia Airport. There would be at least a bulkhead and three rows of first class seating between them, the flight attendant position and the cockpit, making the physical confrontation shown between Don and the flight crew impossible.
Special significance was assigned to having a United Airlines crew operating the flight between Washington DC and New York's LaGuardia Airport. The United flights between those airports are a code-share and operated by US Airways' crews.

At Will's party, Charlie states,"POTUS to address the country at 10:30 EST on matter of national security." However, the date this episode took place was 01 May 2011, the time should have been at 10:30 EDT as daylight saving time began on 13 March 2011.
