Yes, you can do it in the open. What you can't do with tobacco, or anything else, is smoke it.

Just ask the F/A for an empty paper or styrofoam cup with a couple of napkins and chew away. There is no law against it.

You're very welcome and I'm sorry they were rude.

A couple of Piedmont's good ol' boys chewed tobacco and I learned how to set up those cups -- first cup of coffee that went to the cockpit, one of those empty cups with a couple of napkins went, too.

Doesn't matter if the flight is 10 minutes or 10 hours, there's no law against chewing tobacco or dipping snuff on a commercial airliner in the United States.

He was asking about chewing tobacco and snuff. Perhaps those are not common products in Australia?

Had it just been the nicotine gum, he would not have asked.

I sat next to a guy who was dipping/chewing from DFW-DAY. 1.5 hrs, obviously he needed it. I couldn't smell it, and he did it in a non-see-through cup so I did not care.

Huh? So having that in your mouth doesn't taste bad? I have never done it before so I really don't know but it would seem like it would be WORSE.

Chewing tobacco, as far as snuff or "dip" goes, I think is limited to the US. I have never seen it in Europe or S. America. My father-in-law is a B-777 driver and he chews, especially on those long hauls to NRT or HKG. He usually has to take a supply with him, because you can't find it out there either. I chew as well, and usually do on longer flights. I have learned though, use a styrofoam cup or pop can to spit in (as Piedmont mentioned), as other people do not want to see the juice. Also, if I put one in (a chaw) I usually go to the lavatory to put it in, as the smell of some snuff can be overwhelming to pax when you open your can. Plus it is pretty gross to watch someone put a chew in their mouth.

Sweden is the country where the biggest percentage (men..) of the population chews. It is a tradition older than the US itself and we have a bunch of different brands. It's quite common in Norway also, and a little less common in Finland and Denmark. There's no law about it that prevents people from chewing over here either, since it doesn't bother anyone else.

Delta MD-88, I mis spoke he is 777 pilot for CO. You are right no one can smell it once its in your mouth, but open a can of Mint skoal (my preference) or worst a can of Kodiak or cherry skoal. It makes some want to gag.

I've dipped Copenhagen for way too long (35 yrs to be specific, but who is counting).

To the best of my knowledge no law expressly forbids the use of smokeless tobacco products on a commercial airliner.

Certain companies' policies prohibit it, however. Delta generally announces it as part of their pre-flight briefing. It's also in their in-flight magazine dos and don'ts.

As far as being discrete and not wanting to disturb other passengers, a coffee cup lined with a napkin works well, as does a beer or soda can.

Not that I needed a reason to avoid DL, but that is just one more strike against them as far as I am concerned.

I'd hate to be your seat mate if you had a cup just sitting out there to spit in (yuck!).

Also, just because there isn't a law against it doesn't mean the airline will let you do it. Airlines are allowed to set their own rules beyond the FAA rules.
