in thread Arm the flight attendants and lock the cockpit.
Now that we've all seen the coverage of Tuesday's terrorist acts, and had time to think, it's certainly easy to speculate as to what happened on those aircraft, and how we would have conducted ourselves.
Your comment about "everyone would have more confidance in a situation and could handle themselves in a manner other than as sheep" is probably not terribly appropriate. Passengers and crew on at least one of the flights weren't "sheep", from what's been reported. The simple fact is, we don't know how they conducted themselves - we weren't there.
BTW, they're not "beverage servers" - they're flight attendants. Their training involves a lot more than pushing a beverage cart - talk to one someday - you might be surprised what they have to learn.
