Alfred saw him and Selina in the cafe yes...
Ahhhh. So Bruce wasn't really in the jet to begin with. It was filmed that way just to give the viewer that impression. Very clever.
It would be great to see it again, given your response.
During the "wrap-up" with Lucius, the techs said the auto-pilot had been fixed and Bruce Wayne's tech login was recorded as having fixed it, so there's the explanation for how he got away from the blast.
Quick answers (spoiler warning). Here are some observations:
I am on an iPad, so my grammar, may sound simple. Sentence structure is second when pounding on a virtual keyboard.
Remember, that part of the film centers around a device 'Selina' wants to clear her name. This can be used to explain part of the end, especially the line from the estate attorney about the 'missing pearl necklace.'
On a side note: I hated the fact that he had to go broke. Yes, chances are, when all was said and done, and after fraud was discovered; the money would be returned...but still...
They did check part of the device on the bomb and noted that Bruce Wayne 'had fixed it' many months before. I believe he used some sort of distraction to make it appear the blast was worse than what it was, as a way to make everyone think he was dead...
As for the end; Alfred, like most employees, probably takes his vacation the same time every year. Bruce planned this to offer closure to Alfred because he knew he would blame himself....
Question: "I was wondering how you deal with collectors and speculators who truly believe that the items they are buying now are going to be worth a lot of money in the future...?"
ANSWER: "The safest approach is to avoid discussing the topic of future collectability with these individuals: first, they know more than anyone else; second, they are deaf to any opinion that does not agree with their own; third, they are misguided optimists, assuming past practice could not possibly apply in their case."

Saw it again on an IMAX screen(not one of the faux digital ones, but a theater that had true 70mm film), and I have to say it's now my favorite of the three movies. There still isn't a character in this movie that is as electrifying as the Joker, but this is Bruce Wayne's story all the way, and they did a great job on that aspect. Also, Anne Hathaway is the best live action Catwoman ever. Great movie.
I refused to read any threads that had TDKR in it. I did not read any reviews and I only seen clips that were played on T.V. so it would not be spoiled for me. Seen the movie on Friday, horrible experience! I was surrounded by cell phone users, 6yrs old children talking, teenage girls laughing and numerous people walking around.
I really liked the movie, cannot wait till I see it again.....maybe tonight, when the theatre is not so crowded.
