Airlines dim cabin lights during take-off & landing so that in case
 the cockpit door opens inadvertently during these crucial moments of the
flight the concentration of the pilots is not disturbed due to sudden
intrusion of bright light from the cabin.This could also affect the
visibility of the instrument panel.
