    The same way the tories operate I assume. With impunity.;)

    Not sure Rabb has thought this through. He's cutting off the main source of Tory funding.

    The EU has no principles, it is a moral abyss that likes to talk the "correct" way and been heard to say the right thing. But at the end of the day the whole movement is anti democratic.

    Massively fuked up. The plane was closer to Vilnius. Why Ryan Air listened and delivered one of their customers into the hands of dictator is highly questionable. They could have cuffed the 'suspect' and handed him over to Lithuanian police just as easily.

    When Belarus send a fighter jet to "escort" your plane, I guess you kind of have to listen.

    I guess we might see planes not flying over Belarus now. Never the less, Ryan Air pilot should have informed flight control that the 'suspect' is detained, cuffed, and poses no immediate risk, and he will be 'processed' on arrival at the destination. Pure opportunism by Belarus that Ryan Air fell for.

    I don't think they knew that was the purpose, they were just told there was a security risk and the flight was being diverted.
    I have no idea of the laws of the sky, but if as a pilot you are given an instruction by the Air Traffic control of whichever country you are overflying, I'd imagine that you have an obligation to comply.

    According to the above Raman said: "don't do this, they will kill me"

    Whether that was too late idk. Maybe they first got the plane to land, then named and extricated him.

    One thing is for sure, it won't happen again now.

    Clearly he should’ve paid extra for the No Kidnap upgrade.

    as @Glenda's Legs said, bit hard to fob off a loaded MiG on your tail.

    Have you even seen Top Gun?!

    exactly, given they were over Belarussian air space, very little you can do. Going forward, most planes will now be diverted outside of Belarus' airspace for the forseeable future.

    I just read they told the flight crew there was a bomb on board.

    This is for the EU and Irish to sort out. Nothing to do with the U.K.

    It’s up to them to lead and stick their heads up for once.

    It is good to see that the UK has acted fast on this already. The transport secretary has just banned Belavia and I would be surprised if the EU do not follow suit. Hopefully it is just the start too. Belarus needs to be slapped back hard on this or it will just add the list of norms that are broken without consequence.
