Hi,

Does anyone know if any airline still allows smoking on its Western Europe to North America routes.

Not for me - it's a disgusting habit - but my father is hopelessly addicted and won't come over to see me here unless he can smoke on the longer flight.

I'm a British ex-pat living in Ohio and would really love for my family to all be able to see it.

Thanks in advance
Mike

I can't think of any airline that allows smoking at anytime, anywhere.

No European or American carrier allows smoking on board, why dont you suggest some patches and one of those inhaler sticks for the flight, should do him over until he gets there!

none that I know of...EK was one of the last to allow smoking in the back of their cabins a few years ago, but that wasn't even a North American route, it was CDG-DXB and LHR-DXB...

I dont' think you will find a single air carrier that allows smoking in this section of the atlantic (at least to North America anyway).......


i'm not sure about other countries/air carriers though...

Its against FAA requlations to allow smoking on a plane, so those that dont abide by this probably wouldnt be allowed to go to the US anyway. Go with the patches!

There is no FAA regulation saying you cannot smoke on an aircraft. Its done in bizJets all the time. That's a common misconception. However, it is unlawful for airlines to allow smoking on their flights originating or flying within the U.S.

Oh, yes there is:

This applies to scheduled passenger aircraft, so it's permissible on bizjets. But there sure as hell is an FAA regulation saying you can't smoke on "an aircraft" - in fact it applies to quite a few aircraft!

The FAA regulations regarding smoking apply to all commercial flights that fly in or out of the US now. Olympic was one of the last carriers to offer smoking on flights to the US, and they lost a massive tort case because of a doctor who died on one of their flights because he was a massive asthmatic and they did not accomidate him farther from the smoking section.

Doesn't PIA allow smoking (Pakistan Int'l)...thought they had a flight to IAH that stopped in LGW or MAN. Do they just not have smoking on the american part of the route?
