2 person Fightdeck rule

Anyone hear of a recent incident? Luanda bound apparently.

If you know the route, you know the gossip. Now spill the beans 😎

Be careful with this one. Two conflicting rumours around. The truth will come out. Best wait till then I reckon.

Two rumours! Even better! Let's have them both then.

Perhaps it's time for a 3 person flight deck rule, or 4, or 5, or 6, or wait... Perhaps just trust the 2 highly trained and scrutinized persons you put there in the first place?

Agree with Don.

If you're desperate to discuss this incident, or rumour, head off to the dedicated Emirates forum or save it for your RTGS. Putting this out on a public forum is hardly sensible given the content, IMO.

Or how about better care is taken of pilots and cabin crew to stop them going off the deep end in the first place.

And better monitoring of mental health. Why just a physical check once a year (or twice depending on age). Why not a mental check? Good body bad brain may lead to bad results.

Or are companies too scared that far too many of their crew wouldn't be class 1 mentally fit?

It would appear that the far more sinister version of events that is spreading rapidly, is untrue based on information I heard from people who know the Purser and the Captain involved.

Let's hope this incident results in cancellation of the current flight deck policy.

Guys, what on Earth has happened? The two persons flight deck policy is supposed to be a safe procedure!

BA, on the other hand, do not have this policy and therefore I would expect something serious to have happened...

The conflicting rumors may be as a result of some mentioning this happened on a flight to LAD. Those with an investigative eye will see it was on the way to LUN

It is sadly indicative of the rule of fear and paranoia with which the airline is governed that to speak of a rumour you couldn't help but hear is to risk unmentionable punishment.

Not what I meant JAA. There are two rumours. One exciting, one sad. Best we wait and find out what happened before jumping to decisions.

Spot on JAA. Unfortunately the usual protagonists (trolls) are quick to yank the chain and keep the minions on the party line. Sad indeed.

Is it possible that a sudden decrease in "Testosterone supplements" could have adverse effects on ones mental well being as much as the physical? I for one am expecting to see some serious withdrawal symptoms amongst certain crew members.

Interesting that as I checked for some alt/ias info on EK713 on a popular flight tracker, the flight does not exist on the 21st.
Both legs the day before, both legs the day after.

A bit of a pointless debate here with just hints. If it's just gossip then let it go away. If an event occoured that could inform other professionals of the risks involved with this policy and the circumstances so we can learn from it and try and make our operations safer, then tell a bit more. Certainly do not embarrass innocent participants or give away sensitive security information.
