Hijacked Plane Recorded Calls

Haven't seen these before.

Betty Ong:

This sounds fairly real in terms of Ong's demeanor-- she doesn't seem as if she's acting. The oddities to me here are 1) how she keeps saying no one can get up to business class while at the same time saying the cockpit door is blocked-- a clear contradiction, 2) knowing two flight attendants were stabbed but not knowing any other details of how it happened and saying no one can get up to business class where the attendants would have been stabbed-- how did she know they were stabbed? 3) the lack of urgency in her call, 4) the fact that Ong called the AA reservations desk and not authorities. The flight 12 mistake could be an honest mistake or someone forgetting their lines.

CeeCee Lyles:

She sounds as if she's reading from a script. The way her voice changes at the end is very creepy-- is this a malfunction of voice morphing technology?

Both calls were scripted, in my


Neither call was made from inside

a plane that was in flight.

It might be helpful to know

what airline personnel

are trained to do in a real

situation such as these fake

ones are attempting to portray.
