When assessing the need for Seatbelt Signs OFF/ON and whether the FA's should be strapped in, pilots often contact the back of the aircraft to check how things are. The rear is always the toughest ride, especially on longer aircraft. Two days ago, I asked for my crew to be strapped in and galley secured at the rear two doors, whereas the forward doors/galleys/crew continued (with care).
