In every other plane hijacking I've heard of, crew and passengers who fought back were killed. Everyone else had an unplanned detour to Iran and came home safely a few weeks later. That's probably what the passengers expected until the last minute.Originally posted by JediTricks
Hijacked not with guns or bombs, but with knives, with KNIVES!!! Puny little stupid knives, no less, not even big knives, they gained access to the cockpits and took over controls of the plane, almost certainly flying it themselves -- this is probably how it was with all of them.
Plus, at least one cell phone call said that the passengers were told that the terrorists had a bomb.
