*checks skin color chart for both flight attendant and suspect, looks for red hat, hammer-refreshes Newsmax* ... Damn, hard to say whether this was truly an attempted hijacking that deserves Gitmo or just a Christian patriot who had a little too much to drink and should be let off with a slap on the wrist.

Someone would have to be a dumb f*ck to attempt a hijacking on a US flight after 9/11 while there are still plenty of able-bodied adults on pretty much every flight that were alive then. You won't gain access to the cockpit, and the passengers aren't going to trust that you're just flying to wherever where they'll be let go instead of flying into a building incinerating everyone.

That's awesome if they keep those huge zip ties on flights for situations just like this. Mental note taken.

They should zip tie his ass to a wing and buzz the tower a few times.

It occurs to me that before 9/11 and TSA checkpoints, we had a hell of a lot more hijackings. Back then, most all flight attendants (stewardesses) were pretty young ladies.

This flight attendant was not a pretty young lady. Good for dude. Not to say a woman couldn't do the same thing, but the stewardesses on flights in the 60's and 70's wouldn't have done what this dude did. Turns out co-ed flight attendants is a good thing.

I'm assuming he's a nut.  He was screaming "Stop the Plane!".  Well, you can stop a car, or a boat, or a train, but when you stop a plane, it doesn't end well.

Says he was banging on cabin door saying "Stop the plane".  Sounds like a psychotic break to me.

I suspect the definition of hijacking they'll use to put this guy away is "any attempt by coercion or force to cause the airplane to land somewhere other than its intended destination."
He apparently was yelling, "Stop the plane," which would certainly change the destination.

/Just hold it here at 30000 feet over Arizona.

There was a 2000s era murder here in Saint Paul, MN where a woman and a guy killed their companion that way: she was driving, the campanion was in the passenger seat, and other killer was in the back. W/o warning (and, later, still an unclear motive for either him or the girl), he loops a ziptie around the guy's neck, zips it tight, and within minutes - murder in the 1st degree.
It was a surprisingly thin couple of case file folders (murder 1s almost always grew to the size of boxes due to long trials and appeals).

I read plenty of depraved and crazy shiat in my time in criminal records, but that one still gives me chills.

For flights originating in the US, it was more common before airport security checkpoints were established in the early 70s. People could just waltz right in and get on a plane, with only an airline employee there to check people's tickets.

Running a-puck: One dude does not a hijacking attempt make.  Exceptions for the crazy or the truly incredibly stupid.


Is this where we have a long, drawn-out, and legally ignorant discussion about how you need x number of weapons or y amount of people or a manifesto z pages long to be a "real" hijacking attempt?

Telling the flight attendant courteously "Please tell the pilots I have a gun and I want them to land the plane right now" will net you a hijacking charge, even if none of those are true. And that's been the case almost since airplane travel was a thing.

Yeah, but might as well throw the book at him. If they can get the attempted hijacking charge to stick then that means he goes away for a much longer time than if he is just charged with being drunk and stupid. And I am okay with that.
 
2021-06-04 11:11:38 PM  
On my last flight I noticed it was an all male cabin crew. I think the airlines are starting to countering all these unruly passengers with some muscle. Female flight attendants are sadly another thing of the past, now they'll start looking more like the bouncers in the bar. This is why we can't have nice things.
