Total stupidity prevails again

The Germanwings air crash has shown once again that common sense isn't common at all.

I assumed that there always had to be a minimum of two people in the cockpit, especially after the introduction of locked cockpit doors following 9/11.

It's so bloody obvious that it's necessary. Not only to avoid a maniac pilot deliberately crashing the plane but in case of ill health - a heart attack for example.

If there are only two flight crew and one of them needs to leave the cockpit, a senior cabin crew member should obviously go into the cockpit.

The airlines need to answer the question of why this isn't standard procedure. And they need to fix the problem immediately.
