the doors are not opened from the inside. cabin crew donot touch the doors except to arm and disarm, the gate agents will knock, then we will give them a thumb up sign to tell them its ok to open, then they will open the door from outside.

Fly_emirates,not so in SAS.The ramp agent knocks on the door to signal that jetbridge is in proper position,and auto levelling is operating.Then the cabin crew opens door and confirms that all is O.K. for pax disembarkation.Then the "self loading cargo" leaves the plane.
In the Concorde with no windows in the door,there's no way the cabin crew would be able to signal that door is O.K. to open from the outside,accordingly,the cabin crew does this job themselves.
