Quote: 'we will be taking off momentarily' ... crossing the Atlantic could be difficult in that case
Nah, no problem. Even if you only take 'momentarily' to have the British meaning of 'for a very short time', it's still correct because take-off doesn't last very long, it's the sustained flight that you're thinking of, but that happens after take-off.
Of course, if you really want to interpret the phrase correctly, you have to take into account the nationality of the speaker, and the fact that in the US the word 'momentarily' means 'very soon'. (As you can see from the link, even when you look up the British meaning of the word, the online Cambridge dictionary still insists on showing you that there's more than just a British meaning of the word.)
I thought you might find that interesting...
