I know that before Sept. 11, a lot of non-american airlines would allow cockpit visits. For instance, Lufthansa used to. I was always denied a flightdeck visit with them for some reason, I probably asked at the wrong times. Anyway, is it time to say goodbye to cockpit visits everywhere forever?

If they are that strict about it, it would be so much easier to say no! Also marshals are probably going to be in plain clothes, but I know how you can figure out who they are. But I am not saying a word!

Three weeks ago, I flew on all Delta's 4 flights with no problem to see the cockpit 757,767-400 twice and 727. I asked F/A and pilots very polite and friendly welcome me to into the cockpit for a few minutes. It was great Delta! Go for it.

Do you think it will settle? I've never had the opportunity to visit the flight deck inflight, I've never needed to, I ALWAYS visit the flight deck BEFORE and AFTER the flight. So, hopefully, in the U.S., they will allow me to continue doing this, I hope. I had a very interesting experience talking to the DL 727 pilots I met on my last flight. I hope I can do that again.

Jumpseating for non-flying airline personnel (save for the president of the airline) will be a thing of the past.
Just yesterday a co-worker of mine (a mech) got the flight deck jumpseat. He reasoned with the captain that if the cockpit were to be stormed, the attackers would have to deal with him first. The captain agreed and said "have a seat!"
