A 1 in 100 chance that someone can stop them though is better than a 0 in 100 chance. Its still the right move. I mean, this isn't going to become a common occurrence.

Logical thinking, but I think Spoon nailed it on the head by saying you just have to trust them.


FYI Canada's major airline interview process has a major psychiatric portion and hopefully can detect and minimize hiring individuals with mental illness. Detecting, and dealing with mental issues would have much more impact then implementing procedures which open their own can of worms for other situations.

It's disgustingly distrurbing incident that hopefully never happens again. Luckily it generally takes incidents like these to change regulations. Sometimes knee jerk reactions, but also thought out processes which will really help in the future. Whether it is new flight deck security procedures, or medical analysis of flight crew. We may be safer in the air from now on then we already are.

Only if it doesn't create another risk, you have to keep in mind this is an extremely uncommon thing, I'm only aware of one of pilot that tried to commit suicide by crashing a passenger plane. Personally I think better monitoring of a pilots mental health would be more useful than requiring flight attendants enter the cabin, as you then need to clear all your flight attendants as well.

That's actually a valid point.

What if it's the flight attendant that's mentally unstable? The flight attendant can murder the one remaining pilot, lock the cockpit, and and crash the plane.

Keep Calm! | QF32


I didn't actually completely read this entire article, but it points out some good responses for a majority of the public who really don't understand (And reasonably so) the concepts of the airline industry and makes some good remarks about fear, and lack of understanding. If you read my comments during this thread for the average person they may sound irresponsible. But if you realistically break down the logistics of flying, the statistics of avoidable accidents it will make a lot more sense.
