United Airlines announced that the cockpit access information for its flights might have been made public, reports CNN. An obtained bulletin sent to airline pilots warned them that "flight deck access procedures may have been compromised."
United, however, maintains that it has procedures in place to ensure safety on flights. A United spokesperson would not clarify what procedures those are due to security concerns.
In a statement provided to CNN, United spokesperson Maddie Kind said, "The safety of our customers and crew is our top priority and United utilizes a number of measures to keep our flight decks secure beyond door access information," King said. "In the interim, this protocol ensures our cockpits remain secure."
Not many on social media are surprised by the news.
