Obviously, it's not a good idea. The premise:
An advanced species has a plot to remove everything in our airspace and place it 1.5 million kilometers away from Earth. Their purpose is a misguided idea to study our air-faring elements. The birds, the kid skip-roping, the hot air balloons and sky-divers, etc. are in bad enough trouble, but one evil genius is aware of the plot, and will create a space-ship disguised and can function like a commercial airplane.
How do the commercial airliners get destroyed (i.e. - what happens to them)?
What does the evil genius have to do to his airplane to make it survive outer space? It does not need to account for re-entry to Earth, it will be returned later, the same way it was zapped out of the air.
