Not buying the terrorism angle.
For starters, they would have (publicly) crashed or blew up the plane.
Would have been some kind of released statement of responsibility, etc.
All the facts so far seem to lead towards the perps wanting something or someone on that plane. Otherwise, simply blowing it up would have sufficed.
Instead, they needed to vanish, and fly it elsewhere, presumably to land and get what they needed.
