Isn't it a good thing for these poor travellers that the idiot terrorist acted in the last hour of the flight? Imagine if it had been right at the beginning; then everyone would have had to remain seated throughout the whole flight.

Perhaps the airlines should hire escorts to take people to and from the toilets. But not before completely redesigning the cubicles to make sure that there's room for two people. No. Wait, that had better be three people - there has to be someone to check the security person.

Until the toilet renovations are completed on the airplanes, maybe the airlines could issue complimentary "Depends" to people on longer flights.

I'm not surprised at how stupid people in the air travel industry can be. I was out of the country when the restrictions on liquids was brought in as a response to a terrorism attempt. As we were passing through airport security I was told that I could not bring two paracetamol tablets onto the plane. Teeny-tiny little brains with massive guns.

I think I've figured out the Transportation Safety Administration plan:

In the final stages of the flight

1. Attendants remove blankets.
2. Ban opening overhead bins.
3. Tell passengers to stay in their seats with their hands in plain sight.
4. Travel back in time and catch Umar Farouk Abdulmullatab before he tried to set his underpants on fire.
