The days of negotiating and complying/cooperating with hijackers/terrorists are over.

I would kick all of their butts if they were going to kill me. And then save the passangers by singlehandedly landing the plane and becoming an instant hero. That's my dream.

Subdue without killing the lunatic. Keep him away from the flight deck. The stupid bastard would not be able to get the pressure locked doors open. He might be a wiry and qick little shit. But if all he has is a knife, he has no chance if I am on that bird. Also, I would make sure the dipshit "Johstapo" was also arrested upon landing.

I'm not really a big guy, so this is what I'd do:

I'd kick them square in the jimmy.

Well, I'm a pretty big guy (6ft 5 235 lbs). I would take them down.

I would probably end up killing them by being the $#$% out of them.

Or, tell the pilot to go to a lower altitude so we could throw them out the window  Big thumbs up

I'd be part of the ass-kicking committee, and go down fighting. Personally, I think hijackers should be ejected from the plane at a safe altitude - safe enough for there to be no explosive cabin decompression when the door is opened and they are thrown screaming down into an open blacktop parking lot, or something like that, and go SPLAT!!  Laugh out loud

Whow! Only brave guys here. Let's build up this szenario a little more realistic.
Your plane is hijacked by a group of terrorists. To get the attention they shoot two of the passengers and declare: "If only one makes any move, this girl will be killed like the other two people."
Now what would you do?

I'd have to break out my Krazeee Kung Fu Mojo (tm) on em'. I'd take out the first guy with my plastic throwing star that I keep in my boot (which I purchased from the mall in the hood in 8th grade), Then I'd use my credit card knife (you know the one I'm talkin bout, the one that fat tub o' kung foooo craziness Stevey Seagull(sic) used in that one movie where he was spoutin some nonsense about being one with nature) then I'd finish it off with my Vandamme flying roundhouse that instantly repeats itself from several angles. If there are any terrorists left after my brilliant display of martial arts mayhem, I'd break out with my GYMKATA (circa 1984, anyone remember that?), that should do the trick. Then I'd take a big poo on all the bodies while screamin "HAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAA!!!, P43AR my L33T Kung fu Skillzz Bisotch!!!!!"

I bet all you guys would crap your pants if you were actually in that situation, yeah sure its easy to brag about what you would do in a situation when talking about it but what would you do in a REAL hijacking?? Crap your pants and not say a word and do what they tell you, then wait for someone to make the first move against the hijackers then when there half beaten to a pulp get up and get one kick in and think your great!!!!

At 6'2 and 220lb i would rip them apart with my bare hands. Seriously thou, i couldn't be held acountable for my actions. Thinking of those f**king rats pisses me right off. Would i been on the same plane as this "shoe bomber" moron, i would probably be behind bars and he burried 10ft deep in dirt. Pissed

You mock my Kung Fu Mojo? Seriously, everybody dies, statistics are 100%. So you might as well go out like you got a pair. I know I'd rather die trying to take those punks out, then like a pie. And face it, if there are hijackers on board you are more than likely going to either start kickin tail or die. I ain't afraid of dying, no joke don't bother me one bit. I'd rather it didn't happen right now, but what you gonna do? You can't stop it, your times up, your times up. But that's beside the point, the point is I got Krazee Kung Fu skillz and some fool trying to jack a plane ain't got a chance against my plastic star o' death. I might even have time to bust out a couple of really bad one liners as wipe em out, maybe something like, "Sorry sir, the only baggage you can bring on board is your body bag." or "Ladies and gentlemen if you look towards the center aisle you will now see Mojo in action" or "Window seat?"(that is the one I will use as I ram his head through the window) or maybe "United Mojo Airlines is now offering non-stop service right up your A$$ " (I think that one would be quite effective as I throw a star up his poop shoot) or maybe " BuhBye" in memory of David Spade.

the other option is to use a very heavy & solid food cart as a defense as you charge up the aisle behind it trying to run them flat with it....honestly I think that more than just a couple of people would stand up in their own defence...remember a gun (I personally think a broken bottle off the drinks trolley is a more likely weapon) only has a certain number of bullets that can be fired at one time before reloading...a well known tactic exhibited in many wars is safety in numbers, expect casualties, but someone will get through ...I think that when it comes down to it if you don't know the other passengers you can't feel sorry for them if they are killed so you do what has to be done....look after #1 first & foremost..and if you fail...God loves a tryer... Smile The other thing that is being presumed is that they will be hijackers of the Sept. 11 variety that only do it to bring the plane down killing all onboard, many hijackers do it as a means to make sure their demands are met, (eg: rights of passage to a certain country) not for a 'jihad' where it is honourable to die a martyr.

I would say, "Put the gun down and get me my coke and peanuts bitch!"

No just kidding, seriously though I think the best thing to do is tighten your seat belt for the first few minutes. If shots are fired, it wont be long before a call is made from a flight attendant explaining to the pilot of a attempted highjacking. Most likely, the pilot would have heard the shot and know something terrible has happened and declare an emergency. One of two situations will then follow.

A. At the right time, a federal air marshal will defuse the situation, and you don't want to be in their way.

B. The pilot will soon show off their acrobatic skills and put the plane in steep dives and turns. That's what having the seatbelt on tight is for. Once the high jacker is sticking out of the ceiling it's fair game to unbuckle your seat belt and take turns with you fellow passengers to beat the hell out of him/her or do what ever you like.

In most cases, it will be more then one highjacker. So you have to remember if you charge one guy, he could be the decoy. There could still be others sitting down waiting to see if air marshals make a move.

The only time you should charge the highjacker(s) and start swinging is if they get far enough to enter the cockpit. If this happens,Then by all means rush to cockpit yourself and try and kill the highjacker. Otherwise you will eventually be shot down.

A bomb would be the hardest to get control over, but I would need to see the thing before I would believe a terrorist. So once again all of the above in my opinion. Just remember to look out the window before you rush a terrorist with a bomb. If you fail how many more people will get killed by falling debree? It's best to wait for the perfect opportunity, such as flying over water or non-populated areas. If there is no way around it, well you did your best to go down fighting.

One thing is for sure, the highjacker must know that any future attempt will be a suicide mission regardless of what happens to the plane and it's passengers.

Lot of heroes on this site !

Ever thougt of the possiblity that you are in a window seat, 2 or 3 seats away (probably over two very frightened old ladies) from getting to the aisle, let alone attacking anyone ?

Frankly who knows what one would do, far too many variables. Best bet I think is hope like hell either Jackie Chan or Toadpipe are on the plane, his is by far the best plan yet !

If I was on the flight where that guy tried to light explosives on his shoes, I guarantee you he wouldn't be alive today.
