Military aircraft were launched to investigate the incident shoot down the plane if things go all Al-Qaeda, the UK Defense Ministry said.

How much investigating can an escorting fighter pilot do?

"Sooooo, there are no, I repeat, no gremlins on the wing, over."

Pretty much.  But it looks like they landed without incident.

Coming from Pakistan so probably not drunks.  But likely two loud and obnoxious "true believers" who wanted to rant to their captive audience about the horrible atrocities of the British empire they were about to land in.  They will now be spending the weekend with various hands up their asses and then promptly deported.  Then somebody on this forum will declare that they accomplished everything they set out to do.

If Pakistanis are anything like Saudis, the FIRST thing they do once they leave the land of Strict Rules is to get drunk.

True story: Saudis will drink cologne for the alcohol.  DUI accidents in the desert always smell like Paco Rabane.

It was 20 minutes out of Manchester, it's destination, and they diverted it to Stansted, which is a London airport?  Why not just land in Manchester and arrest them there?

Isnt that punishable by death there? I mean I like having a drink but if it became a life or death crime every time I had a drink, I would farking move the fark away.

Escort service must mean something else in the friendly skies of that island nation.
Good thing they spared Manchester and instead landed the evil in Stansted, which, from all accounts, is expendible.

The Pakistanis I know are BIG Whisky and or/Scotch drinkers.

In other news, PIA according to Pakistanis, is known as "Panic in the Air".

Stansted, from what I've read, is said to be better equipped for hostage situations, bomb threats, etc.  Basically, they were preparing for the worst.

I love these updates: "This information may be a bomb threat but we are not sure yet, it could be a fake threat, Pakistan International Airlines spokesman Mashood Tajwar told CNN.

May be a bomb threat!, May be a terrorist act!  May be unicorns flying out of everybody's asses! we don't have a farking clue so lets just act like it could be something scary!

I was on a flight with an unruly drunk once. The stewardess is arguing with the guy, and says if he doesn't knock it off, they are going to need to divert. This MASSIVE 6'something guy gets out of his seat, walks up to the guy giving the stewardesses problems,and goes, "If we aren't landing in LA because they need to arrest him, tell them to bring a stretcher and an extra sets of handcuffs, because they will also need to bring me in for beating this guy to within an inch of his life"

The guy promptly shut up. Big guy got high five's and people trying to buy him drinks the rest of the way. I honestly think he meant it too, and am willing to bet the entire plane would have just went along with a story that started, "we aren't sure what happened, we think he fell down a flight of stairs or something...."

Because of the bomb threat joke made by the two men, which triggers the pre-arranged response of which a part is diversion to Stanstead, since it's suitable for holding an aircraft that could be perceived as a threat.

"The passenger was simply causing a disturbance on the plane and threatening passengers and staff. This is a lesson to angry passengers," the official said.

Have you ever been to Manchester? They deserve a trial first, at least.

I can't stand barbarians who continually manage to fark up something as spectacular as commercial air travel for the rest of us. That goes for everyone - fanatics, drunken businessmen, self-important celebs, the lot. There always seems to be a decently-sized subset of humanity that appears quite interested in dragging down the general level of civilization. Contributors research, develop, and implement something great, and as soon as the public gets access to it, WHAM, someone's farking it up.

Yep Stanstead is the official  shiat just got real airport. It has much more space than Heathrow or Gatwick, is just outside the M25 so easy to get to from any where in the country and the emergency services have plans for all sorts of stuff.

Plus no one would notice if part of Essex turned into a bomb site

20 minutes from touchdown?  Got it...

Stewardess:  Sir, please put your tray table up and return your seatback to its upright and locked position.
Passenger #1:  Don't tell me what to do!
Passenger #2:  You've treated my friend with disrespect!

When I first heard it on BBC News Hour, I briefly thought the reporter had said "The Horde."  My first thought was something along the lines of "That is a very Game of Thrones sounding placename. But hey, it is a Pakistani airline."

This is the difference between today's western and eastern airlines.  In western airlines they would have been diverted to another airport and a janitorial staff been called in to clean the last visible remains of the two Pakistanis out of the floor.  To hijack a plane in America today you would need a farking M1 tank.  And even then the best scenario for the hijackers it the pilot just ditching the plane into a cornfield while whistling "Garry Owen" over the loudspeaker.  Eventually the entire passenger manifest would join in whistling while flipping off the tank sitting in luxury class as the tank driving terrorist finally come to the realization that you just cant farking hijack an American airline any more.
