I think post 9/11 that most passengers would have a go if able bodied now. I know I would.

Well, I doubt they will be any financial burden on the population with any lengthy jail sentence. China is still rather keen on the firing squad I hear.

They are very efficient, the Chinese. Only one bullet per customer.

stay in the pub, keep drinking and dreaming about firing squads and the one bullet theory!

Well, I cant say for certain what will happen to that lot, but they shot 3 of the execs for that Melamine scandal a few years ago. If they don't get that, then it will have to be life (and that means life) in something horrid like Drapchi prison. Serves the sods right too. The State Council will want to make an example of them.

being shot is maybe a better solution for them than their life is now,
newspapers are full of syria, but life in this region of china is about the same,
all power to the han chinese, the uigurs are just a burden, but no oil or any other things to exploit, so who cares about them.

There was 7 hijackers in total but one couldn't partake in the fight as he couldn't get his seatbelt off. I kid you not! :ugh:

I don't know if they'll make it to jail or the firing squad. Two have died in custody already.

Dilxat Raxit, spokesman for the German-based World Uyghur Congress which
campaigns for Uighurs' rights, said Friday that it wasn't a hijacking attempt
but an in-flight brawl over a seat dispute.

Nowadays they mostly just pull-up to the curb in their mobile execution van...so that they can get the organs quickly...except the heart...:E
