Flying With US Airlines?

I'm sure most of us, when we fly, enjoy taking photos from the aircraft. Generally speaking, would this be frowned upon by onboard security staff or cabin crew? I've heard stories of pax being reported by other pax to security once they disemarked and having their bags searched. Does this happen. The problem is that no one seems to know what the law actually is.

It occurs to me then, apart from domestic flights, when one obviously has to fly with US carriers, that it's best to stick to non US carriers on international flights? Can't imagine JAL or Virgin caring much about pax taking photos?

The US carriers are fine with it also, you may get the odd person frowning, but you'll get that on any carrier. I'd fly Continental over Lufthansa for example and have PTV and games all the way rather than an A340 with nothing to do...

I've never had a problem pulling out the camera and snapping a few shots or taping with my video camera on board. It's not on any kind of prohibited item list, so it should be ok. Even still, I won't try to draw too much attention to myself; some people are just paranoid and think someone can do something bad with photos of the interior or exterior of an airplane, or even photos out the window!

Whichever carrier you try, make sure you do not try photography on board any Indian commercial airplane over Indian airspace. Our law making mandarins are paranoid over anyone clicking pictures of India / Indian airports without their permission - all in the name of national security. While cabin crew themselves may not bother too much, chances are you will be harrassed if somebody reports you to the authorities.

Flying KLM into DEL last December, they actually made the announcement as we crossed the border from Pakistan that photography was prohibited for the rest of the flight.

The only time I ever saw anyone admonished for taking pictures was on an Air France flight, while disembarking at CDG. (It was a flight attendant giving my son a hard time.) I often take pictures on US airlines and at US airports and have never been stopped.

I always fly with KLM or with one of its partners. The never made any problems with me when I walked around with my camera even think that they are a bit proud when I do that.
By the way, on a flight from Cape Town to Amsterdam with KLM/NWA, de captain promoted taking pictures....From Table mountain,Cape Town and Robben Island because it was soo clear outside...

I've taken pics from Delta, American, United, U.S. Airways, Southwest, Northwest, and any other airline you can imagine(except Continental, whom I am flying very soon), and I have not had a problem with it.

I know that AA's policy is that you can photograph inside the cabin, however are prohibited from photographing crew without permission from corporate headquarters.
