Flight international in their articles are saying that this was the first survivable crash where the locked cockpit door was a significant factor. In the 2006 accident where an Atlantic Airways 146 went off the end at Stord in Norway and ended up on its side and burned because the pilots could not shut down all the engines, the cockpit crew escaped through the windows. The forward stewardess could not get the doors open at the front because the lower one was blocked and the upper one she could probably not reach. The cockpit door was locked. The stewardess and three pax died in the fire.
