The airline sent a memo to pilots over the weekend telling them to use “alternative security measures”.

“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. In the interim this protocol ensures our cockpits remain secure,” United said in a statement. 

Security of cockpits was strengthened after the terror attacks in September 2001, during which hijackers took over control of United and American Airlines planes.
