Do the airlines have a policy on what or how much information the crew should share with the passengers during a flight? Seems that some flight decks are quite informative about the cities they're flying over, landmarks or the route being flown, while some crews are quieter, just giving destination weather and a "Thank You" from the Captain.

Is this up to the crew or do some airlines actually like the pilots to keep the passengers more or less informed?

Thanks, Jeff

jetBlue pilots are asked to keep their announcements to a minimum as to not interrupt those watchin TV. They usually do an "on ground" welcome aboard and usually a short briefing just before landing.

I really don't know how much info the pilots have to give if any at all. From my experiance some flight crews gave a lot of info (the entire detailed route,how the ride would be,to annouce were crossing the Mississippi River,etc). Other pilots just give the usual info. I really depends on the pilots as to how much they want to say.

I really love it when pilots let you know what's going on.

I had a delayed flight on Midwest Express May 22 MKE-BOS and it was delayed from 3:25 until 5:20. Once on the aircraft the pilot explained that BOS was fogged in, therefore planes need to be spaced out more which causes some delays trying to get in there.

We then needed to circle for 15mins when we were near BOS and the pilot let people know that if they saw any other aircraft near ours, that while in the pattern planes only need to be 1000ft apart and they were not to worry as the pilots have them on visual and on their computers.

I thought it was really cool the pilot went into such depth about what was going on and why we were doing certain things.

When I fly, I like to go to the flight deck before the flight and get briefed, as to what the flight plan is, time of arrival, cruise height, etc.

I remember flying AC on SJC-YYZ a few years back and the pilot came on frequently to tell us to looks out left/right for some notable sights. That combined with the Airshow really topped it all.
