Wish I was there. After breaking his arm and cracking his ulna, I’d have punched him in the gonads hard enough to make him scream “Jesus!”.

So I suppose this character was also looking for the men’s room. This crap needs to stop before something really bad goes down again!

I am waiting. After 2 million+ miles, sooner or later some yahoo will threaten the safety of my flight.

And that can of Whoop-Ass I keep smuggling past TSA will be opened.

And, yes, I am willing to die in defense of my fellow passengers and flight crew.

I want that message sent to johnny jihad. You will die having accomplished nothing. It is the duty of every American to reinforce that statement.

You can’t actually open the plane in-flight, the difference in pressure seals the doors shut.

TSA let him through when they were busy molesting others with no cause.

One thing that is good. They have a lousy terror plan and we are gathering up a lot of Muslim “moderate” freaks.

Trying to open an emergency exit in flight?

Even Chuck Norris couldn’t do that. Let the guy exhaust himself and when he’s good and tired, then beat the snot out of him.

When I was a painter our paint caves were pressurized. They said it was only about a lb of pressure difference but you really had to work to open the door.

Aren't we over reacting just a tad? I mean how many of us once in a while during a boring cross country flight don't feel the urge to leap up, run up and down the aisles screaming religious slogans and, just as a joke, try to open the emergency exit? All in good fun.

You'd think by now some ex-military guy would “accidentally” snap some raghead’s neck while subduing him during one of these incidents.

Maybe next time . . . .

Plane has landed at Boston. Off-duty police officer helped subdue him. He became angry because the flight was late. More later...

I wish I was that well-trained. My “training” consists of knowing the exact placement of every potentially lethal weapon in the forward cabin and a steel resolve to use it.

All joking aside, this is the third time in two days that someone attempted a suicidal (if successful) attack on an airline in flight.

Is there seriously no connection? Just three random crazy passengers? Has the FBI grown so lazy they don't even bother to announce 'it's not terrorism' before looking in to the facts, like usual?

These guys attempted to harm the operation of the aircraft in flight, potentially killing everyone on board. I mean, are we really going to just watch them keep screwing up without comment or alarm until one of them gets it right?

Our government allows its enemies into the country while expecting it’s citizenry to clean up after them.

It’s akin to importing nazis during WWII.

They're certainly not going to "get it right" by trying to open a door. Not gonna happen.

Maybe, but someone on another thread pointed out that being a wannabe terrorist and being an idiot are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
