Then why wasn't the alleged caller hacking, choking and acting in pain from being burned by mace/tear gas? Why were no other sounds heard from alleged passengers alleged to be hit with mace?

The B767 door opens forward, into the cockpit. There is an 8 inch, or so, step down. The B757 door opens aft, there is an 8 inch, or so, step up. Really, you can look this stuff up at Boeing, it's not top secret.
One difference is that one steps up to enter the 767's flightdeck and steps down to enter the 757's flightdeck...
I keep tripping on those damn steps! It's really embarrassing when I visit the cockpit and try to act all professional and then take a header into the cockpit. I also manage to hit my head on the overhead panel, which also adds to my embarassment.
-Neil, Boeing designed the cockpit door so you wouldn't embarrass yourself. Pull the door open = gives you time to see the step down. Push the door and your foot hits the step up before you trip.

I can't say for sure. Some of the hijackers had taken as many as seven transcontinental flights in the weeks leading up to September 11. That could have given them a chance to learn were the keys were.
