I love a game of Simon Says. I wonder who won?

On whose authority was this forced upon the passengers? Not on MY watch I can promise you that!
Were the air marshals involved?

Well that flummoxed the baddies. Clearly they couldn’t do their dastardly deeds with their hands on top of their heads. Quite ridiculous but it was ‘merica.

Hmmm... Looks like picture-taking was allowed as long as it was from atop the head...

The penalty for not obeying the hands on heads demand must have been quite severe, whereas the penalty for filming rather agreeable.

AA get from bad to worse imho. Awful carrier and not great at handling any situation.

Guilty until proven innocent. What is becoming of our society?
Sheesh - I hope this mentality won't come to Europe!

Fear is a very powerful weapon. Scared passengers are compliant passengers and saying..... "We are only doing this to keep you safe" excuses all sorts of dictatorial behaviour.

Only in the land of the free.

A security issue bad enough to scare the :mad: out of your passengers for an hour but apparently not severe enough to decide to go down for an early landing..
