    But the plane would have to land somewhere at some point and there are only two options: On land or in the water.

    Assuming the plane was flying on auto-pilot, eventually it would ran out of fuel out crash land somewhere. But there's been no reports of a large commercial jet crash landing anywhere in that region of the world. That means the plane either ditched in the ocean and researches just aren't looking in the right place or the plane landed safely somewhere. Assuming the former is true, what areas in that region has runways large enough to accommodate a large commercial jet liner of that size?

    I think it flew into the fifth dimension to a parallel universe where the Earth is un populated by human beings. The plane landed safely, but will never take off again. The stranded passengers will now start a new civilization.
    Maybe aliens got it.

    Maybe it was Indians? I heard one report that said that some of the Injuns on board were sending messages for hours!

    It could be in a museum somewhere then.

    That would even explain the "seismic tremors" detected by the Chinese wouldn't it? Going thru dimensional warp like that would certainly cause a disturbance in the space time continuum.

    True, someone could have input a new course in at any time, and once set to follow the course the autopilot would do that. But that's not something a pilot would miss.

    Ridiculous to even contemplate. A new course to where for goodness sakes? To say that a pilot would not miss something like that, is to travel to New York in mid winter and ponder how a native New Yorker would not fail to see snow on the ground. Pointless. What was "someone" going to do, sneak their hand toward the center console and re-program the FMS/FMC? Utterly pointless discussion.

    The point of entry into this disappearance comes well before the FMS/FMC and more than likely has its source rooted in the SATCOM Datalink to ACARS, used by a source expressly for the purpose manipulating Flight 307. Nobody slipped their hand onto the flight deck mid-flight without the crew noticing it. Geepers.

    One POSSIBLE scenario would be that it lost transponder, the pilot/pilots changed course, set autopilot, and then everyone lost consciousness for some reason.
