>>How often do they let you have them?<<
Some airlines have a policy about sending out safety cards. Everytime I email Delta, they always say that they cannot send out safety cards. But, some airlines do. Condor sent me a lot through the mail. It just depends on which airline. Frontier sent some to me. They said that they really never send out safety cards, but they were being replaced on some aircraft and they sent me some old ones. I just asked at the right time. Some airlines will not send ANYTHING out, especially if they have a place where you can order things on their websight. They just want you to spend your money!
>>And what do you ask? Do you just say that you collect them and would like one???<<
That is what I say! I try to make myself sound as professional and as polite as possible. Email only works sometimes. Letters work much better!

Asking the F/As nicely for *A* safety card (not *SOME* safety card*S*, mind you) almost always works. Just ask if they have an extra, and nine times out of ten, they'll walk to the seatback of the last seat in first class (or the first overhead bin in coach, wherever they keep the extras) and grab you one or two. It's not like you're asking them to let you have the second engine, because you read that a B737 can fly on one.
Writing the airlines honestly does not work. They get literally hundreds of requests a day, and simply can't honor all of them, so the vast majority now choose to honor none.

I saw your profile and noticed that you are a pilot in training, I'm also a United fan, and I was wondering if you could visit my message on Visual approach with 737-400, I would value your input on the topic, thank.
