Then how was a Delta pilot alone in the cockpit this year? The Captain was locked out and they made a preventive landing because of it.
2) Unless an air carrier has FAA-approved procedures under § 121.587(b), the flight deck door must remain closed during flight time. In order to operate the flight deck door during flight time and permit flight deck access by persons authorized in accordance with § 121.547, part 121 certificate holders must develop and use FAA-approved procedures regarding the opening, closing, and locking of the flight deck door. These FAA‑approved procedures should be included in the operators’ operations and F/A manuals. Additionally, § 121.313 requires any associated signal or identity confirmation system to be easily detectible and operable by each flightcrew member from his or her duty station. To meet security needs of accomplishing an audio and visual identification, one person on the flight deck is required to visually identify the person seeking access through the viewing port or viewing device.
f) Procedures for two person flightcrews, when one flightcrew member leaves the flight deck (i.e., a F/A must lock the door and remain on the flight deck until the flightcrew member returns to his or her station).
B. Rules for Which Exemptions are Inappropriate.
Normally, the FAA does not issue exemptions from rules in which deviation authority is specifically provided. For example, 14 CFR part 91, § 91.903 provides that a Certificate of Waiver authorizing the operation of an aircraft in deviation of part 91 subpart B may be issued if the Administrator finds that the proposed operation can be safely conducted under the terms of the waiver.

Zaphod, frankly it’s freaking me out that I keep seeing you doubting the OS.
You mentioned that they could not know some of the technical details without access to the FDR. Is it possible they got it from Flightradar24?
