No More Cockpit Visits At Cathay.

Tue Sep 18, 2001 7:48 pm

Unfortunately, no more cockpit visits are allowed at Cathay. It was inevitable in light of the recent events, and provides a little extra security, and I stress little.

Upon the commanders discretion, the cockpit door may also be locked.

Hopefully this is not permanent, but it would not surprise me if it was.

I went to Singapore just this past Saturday on a Singapore Airlines A340, and was allowed into the cockpit for about an hour. The captain said that no instructions had been given so far, but showed me the twin bulkheads/doors behind the cockpit which have been designed for easy conversion to armored bulkheads (from when Airbus was hoping to sell A340s to El Al).
