On the CRJ, the flight attendant jump seat slides out of the a housing built for it infront of the entry door. It slides out and latches into place blocking the cockpit door.
Is there a safftey issue with this? First thing, the pilots have their hatch to escape out of, but the truth of the matter is that the flight attendant is blocking the aisle, making it very difficult for a pilot to pass to get into the cabin if an evac happens.
Also, what is the risk of the latch failing on the CRJ making a lose jumpseat? Something about it doesnt seem that safe.
