If I were in them I'd sell that seat ticket.
I'd buy it immediately. I've always dreamt to fly in the cockpit, but I've never done it.
I think I'd pay a good ticket to make it.....

I'm sure they would - except for the fact that European authorities have banned non-airline personnel from being on the flight deck in-flight.

Plus many flights require the jumpseat for operational reasons such as training.

My thoughts exactly, unfortunately  Sad

Plus, how much do they charge for it and how do you reserve it?

UM....9/11.......
Passengers allowed sit in flight deck...shortly after take off they attack the pilots!!! Now why on earth would any airline be stupid enough to allow their planes be suspect in similiar future attacks under revised SOP's????

I could be mistaken - I'm thinking of the MyTravel incident where the pilot was fired for allowing a passenger on the flight deck. I thought it was JAA/CAA wide, though maybe it is down to company policy.

Regulations aside, I wouldn't want them up there from a safety standpoint. We have a job to do, and don't need somebody who has no clue of what is going on or worse, thinks they know what's going on up there running their mouth and getting in the way.

Exactly. They guys (and gals) up front have a job to do (fly the aeroplane from A to B). Their job is NOT to entertain passengers.
And what about safety training? LH, for example, restricted jumpseating to flight crew and technical staff only, LH office staff were not allowed to fly in the cockpit or F/A jumpseat. The reason was that if you sit on a F/A jumpseat, you are expected to be able to open the door, blow the slide and help in a possible evacuation. In the flight deck you were supposed to know how to operate the safety equipment (oxygen mask, emergency exit). Flight crew got trained in it, maintenance staff knew how it worked since they had to fix it, but other personnel were not trained for it.

I find this offensive and obscene. And anyway, FR fly more ABC1 ('posh') people than BA - which is often touted as an airline for people with class by many on here.

You rarely hear of FR planes making emergency landings to dump abusive/dodgy/obtrusive pax. Unlike BA - who almost lost an entire 747 because one of its passengers burst in to the cockpit and put the plane in to a dive.

It recieves 1000 air rage reports every year and reported a 400% increase in such incidents. In fact, an REM singer made an ass of himself onboard a BA flight. And they infact introduced a 'yellow card' system for disruptive pax! In fact, most of the incidents I recall stemmed from the J/F cabins.

So it would seem that there is a correlation between your 'class' and the likelyhood of causing a scene. The richer you are - the more likely you are to act like an ass onboard.

I realise I am being highly controvertial by mentioning BA - on a lighter note - watch this video, substitute the word 'Britney' with 'British Airways' - and voila - you have half of the people on this forum.

What I meant was they are no different from your average traveller on any other airline, not your so-called "rich" passengers who make a***s of themselves 'cause they think they have the right to. Also, I don't see how you quoting one example of a so-called "showbiz personality" creating on a flight entitles you to infer any correlation between my "class" and anyone else. I'm talking about Jeo Public who takes a flight to get from A to B for whatever reason and doesn't get on the plane with the intent of creating a scene, accepts whatever service is provided and tries to behave courteously and politely to the cabin crew, like the majority of passengers do, at least in my experience. At any rate, my comment was not intended to cause offence to anyone.

JAAR ops says someting along the lines of " only accredited employees,persons known to the captain and aviation regulation staff may travel in the cockpit"

Considering the people we have to move from exit rows as unsuitable (they can pre select seats on my airline) think of the nutters we would have to disallow to travel jumpseat. At least staff in the J/S know "only to speak when spoken to".

I actually personally think the next move for them would be charging for emergency exit row seats. Knowing them, they'd probably slap it on as 'Premium Economy' and charge you an extra 15 quid for it.

Two weeks ago, flying from MXP to CDG with AF, the flight was delayed (again) by 20mn.
One of the passenger, supposed to take a connection to Clermont-Ferrand, spoke about that to the pursuer.
5 minutes later, he came back and bring the passenger to the cockpit in order for her to be the first one to deplane and catch her connection!



Flying is amazing!

Although the jumpseat isn't an option, maybe they could sell space in the cargo hold. Probably lots available. Just bring plenty of clothes to keep warm. Since there aren't any windows, they could sell large advertising space on the walls, too. A money maker waiting to happen!

I would find it hard to believe that any airline would not have a policy regarding who is allowed on the flight deck. The captain would have little to say about it unless it was an emergency.

Yeah, you'd never get the paper read if they allowed any Tom, Dick, or Harry up there!  wink 

I remember leaving Ambergris Cay in Belieze a few years ago via the Cessana Caravan. I was going to sit up front but the pilot blocked my way. He pointed to the chick with her boobs falling out and said "I need her up here for balance". So when it comes to sitting in the FO's seat in Belieze, it's what's up front that counts!  laughing

Every airline has it's own policy and it's still perfectly possible to to get a jumpseat rider in Europe. Remember, we're not the US, serucity paranoism hasn't quite developed to that level it has over there (yet?), luckily  Wink

It isn't paranoia after 19 people destroyed four of our planes and killed thousands of our citizens.

Now what exactly did the strict rule in the U.S. of NOT ALLOWING anyone but Flightcrew in the cockpit do to hinder what happened? Nothing..

If there is a co-worker, family member of the flight crew or a person known to the flight crew (friends etc..) on board why should they not be allowed on to the flight deck? All they do is sit put and look.. if one is distracting you can always throw them out.



When I joined A.net it was still free, haha ;).

Have you ever heard of this major incident : Aeroflot Flight 593

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aeroflot_Flight_593

Check it out. There's an air disaster documentary about it. Even if the lucky person was vetted for 9/11 type security reasons, it would be distracting to pilots.

By the time they decide to kick the pax / family member out, the sterile cockpit could have been compromised enough to make a serious mistake.

But I would pay a whole lot of money to ride in that seat.

No good can come of it.

It is a non sequitur that because the 19 hijackers weren't jumpseaters, that it is a good idea to allow extraneous people into the cockpit. Non pilots on the jumpseat are a distraction at best and a security risk at worst. Sh0rtybr0wn correctly brings up the case of Aeroflot 593. While that was surely due more to poor decision making on the crew's part than the presence of the jumpseaters per se, their presence obviously was at the root cause of the accident.

I ride the jumpseat a lot, and like JayDub, do not look forward to the experience, especially on a CRJ.
