When you have a cross-country 8am flight, that means you probably got up
pretty early that morning (maybe 5:30am), got showered and dressed, got
your stuff together and rushed to the airport, still in a haze. You then
got on the plane, put your bags up, maybe kicked off your shoes, and
settled in for a long flight.

All of a sudden, you're awoken by a bunch of maniacs who are thrusting
knives at you and forcing you to the back of the plane. Within 15 minutes
you are slamming into the side of a highrise building.

Give these people some credit. They didn't have much time to react, let
alone assess just what the heck was going on.
