Consider that most "East European" countries are to become EU members in one month time, and therefore smoking is out of question. Also, I strongly doubt that the pleasures of tobacco were tolerated aboard eastern european carriers in the last 7-8 years...
I flew TAROM in 1993, Adria in 1995 and CSA in 1999 and cigarettes were banned in all of the three cases...

Last cigarette that I had on board wasw on AF Paris to Beijing in the 'coin feumeur' (smokers' corner) in '94. You were allowed two cigarettes per flight behind a very thick curtain and no drinks. It became a sort of club.
You can still smoke on any airline in first class if you are on your own and have paid full whack.

DM allows smoking on some of their IT-charter flights - it all depends on the travel agency that charters the plane.
I've flown on a regular non smoking SAS flight (LHR-CPH) with the Danish queens sister onboard - she was a heavy smoker on the flight - no one said anything (to her face or to the crew) although there was quite a bit of coughing going on in the seats around her.

On domestic routes in the USA and to and from the USA smoking IS NOT allowed in First Class, even if you're on your own and paid "full whack". Is "whack" a word? That's the law, not an airline policy. As Martha Stewart learned, even the privileged have to obey the law.
