Only allow the nutters to fly as baggage from now on.

Fellow passengers should have made it into a life-threatening situation - problem solved. How much will they pay the airline and PAV - I'm sure the lord will provide the resources to do so

If I had been the pilot, I would have continued the flight....We are living in the year 2018 not 200BC

Let's not forget that this affected all passengers on board, not only the Jewish nutcases.
