Original Article

American Airlines passengers were filmed with their hands on their heads on a flight from Los Angeles to Miami on Wednesday. All passengers aboard the flight 2289 “were ordered to put their hands on their heads for 45-60 minutes before landing,” according to passenger Chris Nguyen who filmed part of the bizarre incident:(Tweets/Videos) The unusual order also came with the warning for passengers like Nguyen not to film what was occurring on the plane. After landing in Miami, heavily armed law enforcement officers reportedly boarded the plane and appeared to arrest and remove one male passenger.

I can’t wear a mask and I can’t keep my hands on my head for an hour. I probably would have been beaten. If we can’t drive, we ain’t going. This is getting ridiculous.

I am baffled, although mildly, at AA and what's gotten into them. AA has been my airline when flying for both business and pleasure. I'm glad I am now retired and have little need to go anywhere by air. Anybody need 100,000 airmiles?

Rumor is that the perp had a Lego capital set in his carry on luggage and the Capitol Hill Stasi Secret Police needed to see if other far-righy-wing collabators or Republicans were on board with similar contraband.

"No thanks..." "I have an i jury .. I can't" Let me spell it out for you. These people were not being 'asked'. And it was not offered as a 'suggestion' or an option. Apparently some see nothing wrong with that. For the others, currently safely seated at their keyboards; you need not worry about whether they have your size... all handcuffs are adjustable.

One of the comments to the article points out that it was probably a federal air marshal that gave the order--to make sure no one would be able to activate an explosive device. It's all part of the numerous indignities involved in air travel. I haven't been on an airplane in about 4 years. I was supposed to travel in March 2020, but the pandemic canceled everything. I like to travel, but until all pandemic restrictions are lifted, here and abroad, I won't be.

Make no mistake, the Captain and crew are legally in charge when you are actually on the plane. Same thing on a ship at sea. It is not a democracy where passengers choose what they will and won't do. As soon as I saw "put their hands on their heads" I suspected the crew believed a passenger was dangerous. With all the hands visible it was much easier to spot any mischief. And it is also awkward for a passenger to suddenly stand or move into the aisle. (try it sometime from an airline seat).

Certainly makes sense #23. However, i believe the crew knew who was responsible. How else did the heavily armed law enforcement officers" know to arrest this person without interrogating the whole plane? But AA were just fine making elderly people, children, people with arthritis and other health problems suffer extreme discomfort for 45 minutes. Give a little power and see what happens.

Spent 20 years flying to Florida for a few days of golf in the winter. On the last trip three of us decided to drive. Only took about an hour longer than flying and saved a ton of money. No airline tickets, rental car, standing in line, getting groped by the tsa and overall poor service and nasty. You drive, you can stop and stretch your legs at will, can get real food, ride in comfortable seats with leg room etc. I will never fly again unless absolutely necessary.

When I was in 3rd grade we had a mentally unstable sadistic teacher. She punished the whole class when she was upset with one student (and believe me, we were not unruly children). She would keep us in from recess, making us sit with our chins on our desk and our hands on our heads. Very uncomfortable to the point of painful. I too would have had trouble complying with the order on this airplane. Ramona (the Pest)

Maybe this person was on the no fly list and got past those crack TSA agents. If so, then the airline not only knew who this person was, but knew what seat he was sitting in. The order to put one's hands on your head was done as a precaution from the stand point of the airline. However, since they only flew for another 45 minutes before landing, all of this could have been avoided if they had just left well enough alone. If it had been a REAL emergency, they would have landed that plane much sooner.

Until covid hit, I flew constantly for my business, sometimes to the other side of the planet. I retired 6 months ago and have no intention of flying any time soon. I would love to visit Israel but that may be off the bucket list now. In 1990, when we adopted our daughter, we flew AA to go and pick her up. On the return flight with our new born AA seated us in our own row next to the galley, gave us our own flight attendant who even changed our daughter’s diaper, gave her a first flight certificate and her wings and gave us a bottle of champagne - all because she had just been adopted. Back then airlines specified that newborns had to be a certain number of days old to get on one of their flights. When we were asked for proof of her age, we told them that we didn’t have a birth certificate yet because we had just adopted her and it would take several weeks to get her certificate. My, how things have changed.

My wife would not put up with that. She has torn rotator cuffs (from years of carrying first a diaper bag, then her heavy purse) and she's decided to live w the pain and not being able to lift her arms past a certain level. Repairing her shoulders/rotator cuffs through surgery would take about 6-8 months' rehab and that (according to her) would devastate her law practice. It's just not worth the hassle flying commercial nowadays (and I love flying; I'm a private pilot)

RE #21 on air marshals. Air marshals are rarer than most people think. Air marshals are something less than 3,000, total. Let's assume that 3/4 are on duty on a given day, due to vacations, etc, I'm sure that they don't work 7 days a week. So, that's somewhere around 2,250 available for the 45,000 flights per day in the USA. So, that works out to one air marshal per every 20th flight. Fly 100 flights and you might have had an air marshal on board 5 of those flights.

As a kid back in the early 1970s, when excessive fighting almost ruined the National Hockey League, there was a running joke that went something like this: “The other night I went to a fight, and a hockey game broke out!” Today, it seems like that joke could be re-written: “The other night, I went to a protest, and a basketball game broke out!” Political activists in sports are not a new phenomenon.

There is a very significant detail that many “underestimate, ignore, or manipulate,” he writes, namely that “the disease that has affected Pope Francis is severe and degenerative” and “could also be chronic.”

The Federal Communications Commission waived its rules so Amazon can build radar sensors that the company says would be used to track people’s sleep. The federal government’s exemption for Amazon paves the way for the tech giant to monitor users’ movements in the bedroom with extreme precision—all without users having to press a button. The FCC accepted Amazon’s claim that the tech would be used to improve users’ health and wellness.(Snip) Adding activity-tracking capabilities to Amazon‘s Alexa-enabled devices provides an avenue for Amazon to challenge other companies vying for sleep-tracking users’ business. But Amazon’s touchless radar technology for users’ bedrooms is likely to
