    I agree.

    With this particular incident I doubt that two armed personnel would have been much help...what are they going to do? Play cowboy and shoot the lock on the door? Begs the question what is the point of having armed air marshals anyway if you ask me. Seems like one accidental discharge (terrorism aside) at 35 thousand feet could possibly be all she wrote??? Wouldn't highly trained personnel equipped with baton or even combat knife for that matter make more sense if you were going to do something like that? Personally I have always thought pistol toting air marshals was an insane idea on the surface of it and perhaps through and through.

    Do you think two people in the cockpit at all times is going to be an effective solution? What if evil or disturbed person can over power the other good person? Or they conspire?

    @ kandinsky Thank you for adding that to the discussion. You have educated me and I stand corrected. I was running under that assumption all of this time.

    In case you missed this part: The posting of petetherock referred to http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showt...=1#post9115932 where US flights are mentioned.
    No German airline uses any air marshals or anything similar, neither budget airlines nor flag carriers. Not sure whether European regulations would even permit this.

    I know it's just a movie, but did anyone watch that Liam Neeson movie?
    A pretty exciting show...

    That is why when filling up the compensation claim form, you should never put the word "housewife".

    Instead, use "CEO of ... home industry"

    for example "CEO of kit kat lover home industry"

    In the eye of God we all are equal bro...there is no free ride and no one get's out alive! Payouts are an incentive for evil particularly in cases like this IMO.
