31. Burnett's and Beamer's location

All reports including the 9/11 commission say that the passengers were forced to go to the rear of the plane, including Burnett. His second call from 9:34 confirms that.

But there were exceptions. Todd Beamer rang up Lisa Jefferson at 9:45, and he told her that all passengers were ordered to remain sitting. Obviously the hijackers had overlooked him, and he didn't notice the run to the rear. And several minutes into his phone call, he still didn't know about the hijacker's motives and the coming passenger revolt, asking Jefferson: "Do they want money?"

The Flight 93 story is really a bad movie script.
