I wonder if the plane was circling waiting to see what to do. Should it go back should it continue. If there was a problem on board they could have
definitely been told to cut the trip short. I didn't realize there were airports there. Sometimes I feel grossly uninformed.
I do not know any more than what I have read here...However the 7500 is not a good sign although it could have been inadvertent; however not likely
with the 0000 following code.
Now...... (if) there was a disturbance in the back of the airplane that looked like it could not be handled by the cabin crew.... (if) the aircraft
has not reached the point of no return then it would make sense to RTB (return to base) or the closest alternate airport...
After the initial 180 the cockpit crew gets another call that says everything in now under control...another 180 turn is made to continue on to the
destination....People paid allot of money to get there etc etc..
London is a flight I would assume they would have had an international relief officer on board...(just another pilot who can fly from either seat to
relieve the assigned crew). However from what I have read posted in this thread it would appear not all was settled in the back of the bus, like once
thought.(just a possibility)..And god forbid one of the cockpit crew members went to the back to check it out. We used to do that all the time before
One of the scenarios we were trained in was...There is a disturbance in the back.... Captain, after the dust settles goes back to check on passengers
and crew...Unknown to the captain and other crew members the real Hijackers were seated in first class...When the secure cockpit door is opened two or
more B.G.s rush the door and take over the flight...Not saying this has happened only speculating (absolute worse case scenario) with the available
information at hand...Hopefully they will land safely and it will be all sorted out .....
