Just looking at pictures on here of 767 flight decks (also been doing a lot of flying in flight sim in the LDS 767 while I'm not doing any real flying at the moment). On the overhead panel, there's a series of buttons for cabin calls and ground request. I wondered what the right hand button is for that says "FLT INT". Any help? Thanks.

The flight interphone switch connects ALL interphonesystems to the cockpit....not only the cabin interphone system. In combination with a switch on the P61 panel ( behind the F/O.... the old 'flight engineer' station ) you can also communicate from several area's in and around the aircraft to the cockpit.....actually used this system last night during an APU run.
My company has a policy of switching on this switch right before pushback and you can hear the stewardesses talk to eachother during pushback and enginestart....very annoying )
Mel, those switches you're talking about are actually blue....don't know about the 'alert' switch...might be red. I'll check it out tonight and let you know.

It is an All-Call selection. PA handsets (Or pilot call panel) can make individual calls to either FWD, MID, AFt Stations. or an All_Call can be placed where everyone is Alerted. Usually used in Emergencies I think.

The Flight Intercom button is an alternate action switch, all the rest are momentary. It enables you to communicate on the intercom system with the crew. You have to be careful to not forget to turn it off when you have finished otherwise any crew using the intercom system could hear you talking about the really hot junior down the back in lewd terms .
