BA were one of the few airlines that did not implement a '2 in cockpit' rule after the germanwings crash, citing safety concerns. I don't know about AF/KLM.

I think this is just one of many differences in opinion between US & EU regulators as to the safest method to allow a pilot to go to the toilet, and I'm not sure the lack of safety cameras (as posted above) can explain it fully.

Minor quibble here, it included a suicide, yes, but really it was mass murder.
