Is Cockpit Security At Risk?

An engineers union has accused Qantas of putting the safety of pilots and passengers at risk by operating aircraft that have faulty cockpit doors despite being aware of the problem.

A spokesman has suggested that the claim is just a ploy by the union in a pay claim. But is the spokesman's allegation just a smokescreen to deflect attention from a possible problem?

The additional safety due to a closed cockpit may be valuable, but I would not ground an aircraft with a cockpit door that can be opened by a special trick - if it were the exit door that doesn't close properly that would be a different story to me.

Security hype misuse.

Cockpit security was absolutely at risk. Unless there was an air marshal team assigned to each flight with the faulty cockpit doors it was not acceptable of QF to operate these aircraft, IMO.
