the hangar deck is rather high
One reason for a three deck high flight deck would be too accommodate space craft larger than the standard shuttles that we saw on the show.

Bigger shuttles (and small starships) with double decks would require more room, this would explain the height and width of the aft "clamshell" doors, which are much larger than a shuttle needs.
