What would you do if someone was beheaded in front of you?
Everyone is wired to survive. If the attacker turned on another passenger he would be perceived as an even bigger threat and the chance of anyone choosing the fight-strategy would decrease I'd say. Also, the amount of time passed would make little difference. Once the flight-strategy is initiated anyone would have a tough time regaining control before a safe distance is reached.
Would the situation have been different if the guy had turned to attack another passenger? Then what would you do? Each passenger would have had time at this point to assess the situation. Would this have made a difference in the decision? I think like you said....some are just wired to do something while others are wired not to.

Everyones a hard guy when talking about what they'd do over the internet, i suspect things would be different if you were there in person.
Also, why is everyone ignoring the fact that everyone was off the bus BEFORE he started beheading the guy? Two of the witnesses actually TRIED to get back on the bus and the maniac took a swipe at them.

You would probably not know what was going on until it was over. If there were any women onboard, they probably went instant hysterical and started screaming.
Like an instant madhouse.
