I would like the opinion from pilots, F/E`s pursers and flightattendants(if they are around) about the issue of cameras installed in the cabin to increase security. The system in my head reads as thus: Cameras cover the whole cabin area from above and the galley`s. Monitors installed in the galley and on the side of the pilots, or old F/E panel should give an early alert to the pilots to be able to inform homebase about ongoing things in the cabin. And what about the flight attendants being equipped with a small device which can send a warning signal to the cockpit to draw attention of the pilots to the TV screen to monitor the perhaps hazardous situation on board? Would airlines be interested in recording images on board regarding passangers getting aggresive or abusive to other passangers or flight attendants?

BA have just done a TV camera installation on a couple of the 747-400's that have com through on their majors. The cameras are installed in the upper deck and face back along the central isle. They are angled away from the pax to allow some privacy for the duration of the flight. I reckon that all airlines if they haven't already started doing this should as it puts your mind at rest as it gives that added bit of reassurance.
