At the time of the flight they were at, the crew would have still been strapped in. They were still climbing out, which company policy is to be strapped in until cruising altitude.

But let's say they weren't, or they just had the lap belt on....how exactly are you going to get up, turn around, and fight back, without hitting the controls and putting the plane out of control?

Great example of a cargo plane crew fighting back. All that was risked there were some packages. Airline and cargo company policies are completely different, and always have been. Airline policy was get the passengers safely on the ground, and let negotiations end the situation. In 2001 there would have been no fighting back from the crew.

not to mention that the response is totally different in this type of highjacking. This guy was not trying to take hostages, or he would not have used a bludgeon that requires a big swing to be deadly. It was clear he was trying to kill the crew, so they responded rationally and fought back. If the same had happened on 9/11 perhaps we wouldn't be discussing this today.
