Make cockpit doors really strong and impermeable to gas. In case of hijacking, pilots can seal the door and fill the passenger cabin with sleeping gas. Everybody goes to sleep and the pilots can land the plane.

       I don't see the great problem with this. It is relatively practical (do-able at least) and would probably work. Bun unless anyone can give me a reason it wouldn't work. I doubt it would malfunction, the oxygen masks don't.
