That's the point exactly. If the terrorists cannot get into the cockpit
then they have to tell the pilot what to do. Like you said, no pilot
would fly his plane into a building because terrorists would kill
people in the back. If the hijackers said "Fly to Cuba" the pilot could
fly to Cuba, no buildings would be destroyed.
