I thought the cockpit is locked and no strangers allowed in after 9-11? Please correct me! This is a bit strange...

Not that the Herald is known for accuracy but it's right there in the article. Ultimately it's at the Captain's discretion and there are parameters that have to be met but it can and does happen on regional flights. However, there is a blanket ban due to COVID-19 at the moment.

The plane I am sure was a ATR and not a A320 and yes Joe Bloggs can go in the Jump seat with the captain giving the A-OK

 

International flights are far more strict

There is no blanket restriction - it does however require permission.

 

International flights are quite different due to security measures.

So Llewellyn, who wasn't there, could tell the level of intoxication of the female employee, and that the smell of alcohol would be obvious. Riiiighhhht! There's got to be something else behind this.

 

[Edit] And not a random woman... she was well-known to the pilot.

I've been in the jump seat as a passenger.  Few cancellations and the plane was full.  Very cool, but very uncomfortable.

Yes - it does seem bizarre that the woman's boss would go to such lengths to complain to the CAA and then the newspapers about one of his own employees being allowed to sit in the jumpseat by the pilot who knew her well. As well as to basically say she was rolling drunk and undoubtedly producing alcoholic fumes? Maybe he once asked to sit in the jumpseat and was refused so got the hump? Maybe he hates the pilot?

 

Either way it sounds like Llewellyn has a personal issue with either the employee or the pilot and is trying to get them in trouble over an incident he wasn't even present at.

I wonder why the media even published this. Must have been a slow news day.
