Easy, i have a printed note which i fill in the flight number and date and ask the captain if i can photograph the cockpit on landing and if its ok if i can take a few pictures of the cabin inflight.

Once he reads it, he will call the purser or any other F/A and tell them that its OK to take pics in the cabin in flight and/or of the flight deck once landed. So that ways the F/A's dont really need to use their limited discretion to allow you or forbid you to take pics in flight since the Captain has given his consent.

I have noticed if you just ask the F/A's there is a 50/50 chance of them letting you take pics or not allowing you. But with the Captains consent, they dont really say much.

Always remember, the best person to ask is the g uy in total command, aka. the Captain, these guys are very cool who like people admiring the plane they are commanding!

Try it

Why should it?

Terrorists don't use Nikon and Canon, IF taking photos they use Nokia, Samsung, Motorola etc!



If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!
