I believe that quite a few carriers still allow smoking on board. I am not sure if JAL still does allow it on its long-haul flights, but about five years ago they did allow smoking - only in the rear, though.

What carriers would still allow smoking??? Seems really dangerous to me that any carrier would still allow smoking aboard. From European, US to Third world countries. Thank you though Safety for getting back to me.

I imagine that there a few airlines that allow smoking still that fly regionally in Africa and Asia.

I think any airline flight to Europe or to the US/Canada has to be non-smoking now. After the shoe-bomber that will never change.

Just a few years ago there was a story brewing because Aeroflot allowed flights on their flights to the US which violates US law. When the US was going to enforce it, Russia said that they would enforce the law that states any airline flying to Russia has to have Russian speaking crew.

Thanks to the attempted shoe bomber we'll never see smoking on planes again.

A couple of years ago I remember looking at a Saudi Arabian seatmap for their 747s and I remember distinctly seeing smoking sections. My best guess is that this is still allowed unless things have changed.

Are most intra-China flights nonsmoking?

EL AL i'm pretty sure doesn't anymore but I bet your right about the Inter African flights still having it. You would think after the shoe bomber deal everyone would put a no smoking policy in.

Related to the same topic, how stupid is it to even have smoking on board a flight. I mean not only is it dangerous, but health reasons and others that don't smoke suffer greatly. Especially on those long haul flight. I remember some of them. El AL would have only the back two rows for smoking but theres nothing to seperate the smokers and non. All of this is coming from a smoking by the way so I'm not trying to make this an anti smoking deal, just a discussion.

Thanks again

I saw the seat plan of some Aeroflot's airplanes such as the 767, and they still have it on the "Smoking Section".

BONGO:

I recently flew on Aeroflot 767 and it was all non-smoking. Also the domestic flights I took on the A320 were non-smoking. The airline claims to have all
non-smoking flights throughout their network since March 31, 2002.

Both JAL and ANA finally banned smoking on long-haul flights in the spring of 1998. I remember because I was in Japan at the time. My trip there was a long, smoky flight from NY (the economy cabin on JAL's 747s was so small that there was hardly any separation between smoking and non!), but when I returned home it was blissfully smoke-free. Quite a difference!  Smile

IIRC ANA and/or JAL brought back smoking since their loads on certain domestic flights plummeted after they banned it. But I may have a hazy recall. Maybe it's all the smoke  Big grin

Smoking is banned in all public places in Nigeria, thus being applicable to all airlines flying within our borders. However, I do not think its ever been (or will be) enforced. Besides that, the odds of you sitting next to a passenger who decides to 'light one up', are very slim; smoking is not a popular habit in this country.

I on the other hand enjoy it.

El Al does not allow smoking on any flight. I was reciently on an El AL 747 between JFK and TLV and I can confirm this. I'm sure that they have thought up some security reason for this policy in addition to the other obvious reasons.

My grandparents flew on Olympic a few years ago (I think cerca 2000) and they said that you could smoke on the flight.

Okay, I have a question. It seems like I've been living on Mars or something, but what does the shoe bomber guy have to do with smoking?

The shoe bomber was caught because he was trying to light the fuse to his shoes and smell of the attempt (I think it was a match, maybe the shoe burning) caught the attention of a flight attendant. If, he were on a smoking flight, the smell would have gone unnoticed, catastrophe would have struck, and there would have been some very satisfied sharks in the north Atlantic.

I imagine that there a few airlines that allow smoking still that fly regionally in Africa and Asia.

Is this assumption of yours based on prior knowledge of the laws of the respective countries, or is it based on stereotype?


I based it on stereotype. More for Asia, as I have not traveled around Africa since the early 90s. The fervent anti-smoking during flying push originated from the US, UK, then I think relunctantly, Europe. Historically, laws like that which affect travel between two countries do not necessarily have to be followed for travel locally for either party.

In Portugal for example, in June 2001, I remember people smoking the subway stations. My favorite memory is the conductor, getting off the train at the stop, taking three quick puffs of a cigarette, and then extinguishing it against the side of the train before getting back on and closing the doors.
