So why would the underpants bomber come out of the bathroom to set off the bomb
So why would the underpants bomber come out of the rest room to set off the bomb in front for a 100 plus people.

Some with cameras

If he set it off in the rest room. BOOOOOOOM , plane goes down .

No reason for this, unless it was all a show .

I think the shoe bomber did the same thing

Was his assigned seat over a fuel tank?

hmmm....what a curious point.

Does make the whole thing look hokey.

Except for one thing: None of those involved appear to be very bright.

Re: So why would the underpants bomber come out of the bathroom to set off the bomb
he needed to be in his seat which was over a fuel tank and set the explosive off next to the skin/side of the fuselage.
my guess, this would blow a hole in the plane and light fuel.

Simple physics -- you don't set off your explosion in a small walled compartment. A lot of the bomb's energy would be expended blowing the walls away, but that wouldn't affect the aircraft's airworthiness.

So you come back to your seat and sit next to the fuselage. too, let's say your home-made bomb doesn't rupture the airframe (you haven't tested this, you know). But if you're sitting in a crowd, the effect is nearly as catastrophic.

Like a hole in the plane isn't enough and sitting in your seat in full view of other passengers while trying to light a bomb ensures unhappy seatmates.

On the contrary, the wall closest to the fuselage in the lav is no thicker than the one beside your seat.

Returner is right, the lavatories on the A330/340 is lightweight module kind of stuff.

Light weight, but a closed box.
He wouldn't blow a hole in the fuselage in there, window seat mid cabin, well that's another story.

The operation was so well-planned and sophisticated (like the shoe-bomber) they have to use matches to detonate the bomb?

Utter tripe. The walls of the lav will partially constrain an explosion - more force directed against the fuselage; in the open cabin area force is dissipated easier.

Umm, no, as non of the walls of any of the lavatories on the A330 is even close to te outer walls of the fuselage.
