That prompted an email from an AF senior Captain on photographers and a.net in general.
To make a long story short :
1) Jumpseats are still allowed on AF, but only if you're a pilot/aircrew/airline employee with credentials.
2) Pictures must be dicussed beforehand with the crew.
3) Please refrain from showing "inappropriate" situations, i.e anything that deviates from normal procedures.
4) Please refrain from writing "negative" or inaccurate comments in the comment field.
5) If possible, blank out the registration on the panel (see pic).
The Captain also advised me that an internal memo concerning a.net jumpseaters had circulated in the airline, stating that these were still legal and allowed at the Captain's discretion, but that restraint will have to be exercised in the future.
So If we still want to enjoy the ride upfront in one of the last airlines that allow it, let's follow these guidelines.

Thats awesome that we can still do the jumpseat on AF. But the question begs to be asked with the Rule of Airline Crew,Employee or pilot do we circumvent that rule for being A.net photographers? Just a question

Kind of curious, on larger aircraft are non-revs allowed to sit in unused jump seats? For instance if I wanted to fly AF somewhere and the only seats available was a unused jump seat would i be able to sit in it? Would i have to be part of the crew or would a CSA count? Just curious on different airlines policies.
