Delta Pilot gets locked in cockpit at LAX

A Delta Air Lines aircraft was delayed for several hours at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX/KLAX) because a pilot was locked inside the cockpit and couldn't get out.

According to passengers aboard DAL124 destined for Atlanta (ATL/KATL), the flight was scheduled to leave at 09:00PST, but was delayed nearly 4 hours as mechanics worked on the cockpit door.

The Boeing 767-332 cockpit door was finally repaired and the flight departed at 12:43PST, arriving in Atlanta at 19:36EST.

DAL124 was originally scheduled to arrive in Atlanta at 4:20EST, then continue on to Brussels Airport (BRU/EBBR) but departed a bit late for Europe.
