22 years with a major US airline, so I believe I have a little bit of credibility.
Could you help then inform us back of the bussers under what circumstances you would let someone other than the flight crew into the cockpit?
Answered already, but for clarification I 'quoted' you again, just so others can see it. Every crewmember is given annual (or in the case of
pilots, more frequent) re-current training covering many areas of airline operations, including security.
Based on the previous several decades of hijacking events worldwide we were all taught a common strategy...it certainly doesn't give anything away to
tell you that one aspect of that strategy was, naturally, NOT to let bad guys in. However, if intruded, one expected there would be a political
agenda of some sort -- not suicide combined with that agenda.
Of course, we now (a little late) hear that there were White House NIEs that were not disseminated to the aviation community...at least, not to us.
The Clinton Administration appears to have been briefed, the Bush Adminstration was in-briefed, continued to get warnings...but no one told us to be
wary of such an attack. There's your conspiracy!!
