I then talked them through it and everyone was happy. Isn't it interesting though that there is no requirement to give them any instruction in how to carry out their new role? That is my main point, the whole thing is window dressing. If management thought there was any real risk of losing an aircraft and that the new procedure might mitigate the risk, there would be training.
Then it is up to you to provide that training - a few seconds in your preflight brief would be all that is needed. If, or perhaps when, there is another Lubitz the airline involved will go the way of PanAm and TWA and politicians will get involved and then everyone will lose.
