Why do terrorists want to blow up airplanes? Surely there are easier targets with just as many casualties.

I would think that depends on where the airplane is when it blows up and how much fuel is inside. Parked at the gate full of fuel, I can picture a chain reaction that could take out quite a few jetliners like dominos.
