Passengers Take Flight Crew Hostage over Plane Delay

Turnabout is fair play? Is that a valid defense?

Angry passengers have held a Jetstar crew hostage after a flight delay in China.

A Jetstar pilot and crew were held hostage for more than six hours by a mob of angry passengers after their flight was diverted from Beijing to Shanghai because of bad weather.

The experienced Australian pilot is being hailed as a hero for his calm actions after being confronted by the angry passengers as they disembarked at Shanghai's Pudong airport.
