AA - 4 LNR And X Check?

Wed Jan 24, 2007 12:56 am

Always on AA, I seem to hear '4 LNR and Cross Check' by cabin crew.

This must be 'doors to manual' etc - right?

What does the '4 LNR' actually mean?

I think that it's "4 L and R" not "4 LNR" and means that they have checked doors 4L and 4R.

cheers.

Yep, Dank is right.

It's 4L and R. The "cross check" is to notify that the doors have been verified as armed or disarmed by a flight attendant other than the one who physically armed/disarmed the door(s).

If you're on a wide body, you'll hear the door's assigned number. On narrowbody you'll hear "aft doors" and "forward doors". You shouldn't just be hearing "4L and R" unless you are on the 767. On the 777, A300 and 757 (considered a widebody) you should hear all sets of doors over the PA.

It's a way to audibly notify all crew members the doors are either armed for departure or disarmed for arrival.
