You can listen to the audio and judge for yourself as to if the reporting is correct that states:
But crew members didn’t react well to the unexpected visit from a stranger trying to breach the highly secure area of the plane.I thought the co-pilot (the "First Officer") did exactly what he should have. The rules are:
- Maintain Aircraft Control
- Analyze the Situation
- Take Appropriate Action
As for this situation, the co-pilot, locked in the cockpit, has no idea what is really going on in the passenger compartment. I think he did just the right thing.
And a thanks to Neal for sending this along to me.
