I could entry cockpit 2 times. 1st Flight 251 737-4D7 (HS-TDK) from BKK to TST and 2nd Flight 252 TST-BKK (HS-TDA) * You can see my photo on a.net search name poowin*
I would like to ask you. How you go to take cockpit photo. How you ask purser / Flight Attendant. I can't entry cockpit of big or medium plane A300-600 , B777-300 ... etc.

Need advice from you.

The best bet is to ask the Captain or the First Officer when you board the aircraft. On most airlines, one of them is usually standing at the door.
That's what I usually do, and it often works (sometimes I even get the jumpseat in the process Big grin)

definately ask them ahead of time. try to talk to them when they show up at the gate. usually if they have to wait they will not mind. explain what you are doing fully and even plug the site. usually you might need to ask them if you can do it at the end of the flight. that is what they might just decide on thier own though. be friendly about it. also, if they say no then don't push the subject. some crews are nice but then other could ba having a bad day.
