Airlines were reassessing their safety policies on Thursday after investigators said a Germanwings co-pilot had locked his colleague out of the cockpit as he forced Flight 9525 into the side of a mountain, killing all 150 people on board.

Norwegian Air, easyJet and Air Canada have all announced they will change their policies to require that two crew members be in the cockpit at all times. If a pilot leaves — to go to the bathroom, for example, as investigators suspect happened in Tuesday's crash — a flight attendant or other crew member will have to be stationed in the cockpit.
