Betty says at the start of the call (22 seconds) "Flight 12."
She does not answer the seat position until about the third time (52 seconds) with "I'm in my jump seat right now, 3R"
Later she states " ...my name is Betty Ong, I'm number 3 on Flight 11. (1.10 seconds)
Our number 1 is stabbed (1.58 seconds) void of emotion that you would see with close working colleagues. You here someone in background say, Karin
(Martin) is stabbed. Betty does not react.
"somebody is coming back from Business" (1.39) converses with passengers.
we cant even get back up to business right now cause noone can breath" (2.00 seconds)
"the cockpit door wont open" (2.17 seconds) but she clearly stated that they cannot get to business class, let alone 1st class (1.26 seconds) we
can't breath in business class. 41 seconds is not enough to recycle the air in the whole cabin.
The air in the airplane cabin is completely exchanged
with outside air 10 to 15 times per hour compared to a
typical building’s 1 to 2.5 times per hour
AA operater, clearly taking notes from the start says back to the other woman on call when she asks what flight number, "Flight 12" (2.13
This Betty hears perfectly (2.36 seconds) stating "No I'm on flight 11."
The guy apologises like he heard it wrong, but he didn't...
*Warning personal speculation* This leads me to the belief that when asked her seat position at the start of the call, she didn't have the info at
hand and stalled on it....claiming " it's hard to hear"
(2.25 seconds) we can't even get up to
Now we are talking about a 20 minute call. The plane hit the North tower at 8.46.
Meaning the call started at approx 8.26.
12 minutes after the alleged hijacking commenced.
She never mentions, course change or descent in that video...and is still uncertain that they are hijacked.
Oh and BTW, 1 thing that you would do ASAP...call a Doc for an injured & bleeding person.
What one can surmise about Betty Ongs demeanor: Stupid, unsure about hijacking, and Nerves of steel or she really didn't care what happened to Karin
