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.
