Rafterman Posted March 26, 2015 #101 Share Posted March 26, 2015 I've been following this and it seems Lufthansa are one of the few, if not perhaps the only, major airline to not operate a 'two person' rule with respect how many people must be in the cockpit at all times. In every other major airline, if one of the cockpit crew takes a break and leaves the cockpit, another crew member must replace him/her before they can leave. I assume this is to prevent emergencies due to medical or psychological issues from either pilot or co-pilot. I sense Lufthansa may be changing their policy in the very near future. I find that odd as well. Many times I've seen a cockpit crew member come out of the cockpit to use the restroom. Typically a flight attendant will block the aisle with a beverage cart and stay there the entire time while the crew member is in the head. Additionally, a second flight attendant will go into the cockpit to maintain the 2-person requirement. 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
