Hi all, I am new to this forum.

I am going to take a long haul flight from LHR to Beijing with BA, just wonder if it is possible to take several photos in the 777-236ER's cockpit?


Please excuse my poor English.

Sure, if you can click a shutter button and you're allowed up to the cockpit. The latter may be a subject of debate, but I'm guessing that UK restrictions are more lenient than their US counterparts. Hell, the entire plane was invited up to the cockpit on a recent EWR-DEN flight of mine, so it's really up to luck. The captain calls the shots...

Aer Lingus used to be really obliging. You used to be pretty much assured a visit. Now its a no no. Usually the FA's dont even bother asking the captain anymore, they make the decisions themselves now. Its a shame but you can't blame them. I mean if I was a captain right now I dont think I'd be too keen on letting anyone sit up front with me.
F**king Bed Linen, Bin Liner, Bin Laden whatever....

So, what about after landing? Can I stay in the aircraft and ask for a vist after all passengers are left from the jet?

Please excuse my poor English.

Try after landing, I've even had good experiences with AA (shocking!)
