Can you take pictures while the airplane is taxing? Are you aloud to take pictures while landing? Are all the airlines the same?

there is no reason that you can't do it. If you see a plane you want to take a picture take it, it's not illegal.

Sure. The quality won't be great, but there's no rule against it in the U.S.A. I can't speak for Greece.

If you mean taking photos while inside the plane, you run into the issue of an "electronic device." Since most modern cameras have to be turned on to take a pic, they are not allowed to be used just like any other device. I have been on two flights where the F/A told someone to shut their camera off. Otherwise it is legal to take pics, but I wouldn't do so unless off airport property as security is very tight.

Wow I never thought twice about taking pictures on a plane... I have even took video tape during take off on United flight # 1 LAX-HKG twice before and on arrival into Hong Kong as well. F/A's had visual with the video camera and didnt bother me what so ever. Good thing they didnt stop me... The take off roll on those two long flights is pretty impressive to me and especially to my friends who have never experienced a fully loaded 747-400 take off. Planning on doing the same on ORD-PEK soon!

I always have done and nothing has ever been said, lots of people do. If it wasn't allowed with a particular airline it would be in the briefing or in the info in the seat pocket.

There are dozens of photos taken from aboard aircraft that pax have taken, here in the A.net collection!!

Cameras are electronic equipment (unless you have a real old manual one).
That's why airlines can tell you not to use them.

In many countries, taking pictures of airport installations may also be prohibited as they are also military installations.

Iberia's staff told me several times not to use my camera. But I don't know why.

All the announcements that I had heard onboard pertaining to the banning of electronic equipment applied only to the actual takeoff, approach & landing phases of the flight. During cruise, there is usually no such ban. Lucky for me, since my only photo submitted & accepted by a-net is an inflight shot.

Cell phone use, on the other hand, is banned during the whole flight.

When I was told that I was not allowed to take photos while the plane take off and landing and taxiing, they told me that if I turn camera on, then the computer in panel instructment in the cockpit is gonna interruped and unable to see screen clearly.

And also, i was also told that I have to wait for 20 minutes after the plane take off.

I hate to follow flight attendants instructions!

I was flying with AZ(Alitalia) to MXP and the F/A told me not to use my Discman during all the flight. - I looked in his eyes as if he would be nuts.

I anyway used it as if I was listening to the inflight audio. hahahaha Italians.

I would ask one of the Captains as you are getting on the plane. They are the ones who would know the most. Unfortunately, like any job, information coming from the source often gets distorted as it goes down the lines of communication.

I once asked an American pilot before my flight about using my camera at any time while on the plane and he said I could use it. I just couldn't use a video camera or other items like Discman, etc.

When I sat jumpseat aboard an AC flight, I asked the pilots if I could take photos during the approach/landing and they allowed it. I guess this policy varies...
