Like I said - how come there have been countless 'successful' hijackings in the past then
The air-staff are trained to deal with these situations in a certain way, what was left of them anyway. Joe Public is told to let the prfoessionals handle it, and let's face it - the majority of people are not eager to be the first to get hurt. The hijackings took part in 1st class from what I make out so most people didn't know what was going on anyway and anyone going through the curtain could have been attacked by terrorists waiting to the sides. I'm glad you consider yourself some sort of Rambo hardman, but up until 9/11 people with your attitude would have ended up getting people killed. Looking at the situation now though it would probably be good to a have a few psyco's like you on the plane LOL
