Any Smoking Flights To Europe?

Fri Jan 25, 2002 9:24 am

Are there any Trans-Atlantic flights to Europe providing a designated smoking cabin-section to passengers? What foreign airlines are currently selling smoking seats to Europe from Canada and US?

None. Aeroflot did, on JFK-SVO only, until very recently.

I do believe AeroFlot out of toronto still offers smoking on their flights. not overly sure. If they still do I think that they are the only ones.

Frickin quit. It's been done before, by many. Don't be a slave to those things. Otherwise, learn to go without for a few hours.

Do what I do before a long, short or medium haul flight. Head straight to the smoking room after immigration, and smoke 4-5 sticks continuously until you feel sick. That amount of nicotine will keep you happy for a flight between 7-9hrs. It works for me, amount of cigs dependent on how heavy a smoker you are.... Smokin cool
There's always a better way to fly...

AWspicious opened a similar subject thread (see "Smoking in Aircraft") and he found an interesting article in thestar.com Toronto about smoking settings and concerns related to this issue. My guess is that there are still quite a few foreign airlines that are selling smoking seats on transatlantic flights though they are not advertising this for obvious reasons: there are more non-smoking travelers. That's probably why airlines didn't consider seriously to provide a separate smoking- class cabin with all the necessary ventilation. But one would think that with so many perks in "business" and "first" ranging from caviar to... pajamas puffing a cigar after all would be just another... pamper that (allot of) money can buy.

I don't mind not smoking (though I am a smoker) even on long-haul flights. But I find on board air is getting worse and worse, because airlines adjust their levels of fresh air intake (fuel cuts beings the main reason) since smoking is not allowed at all.
On my latest intercontinantal flight (AF) I did'nt smoke at all, but I sure did catch a cold!

Smoking is not allowed on ANY airline flight that originates and/or terminates in the United States, I believe it is against the law. Aeroflot was granted special permission on JFK-SVO (and they do not even have smoking any more), but that is it.

Correct me if it has changed now. I believe that Royal Jordanian still offers smoking on their flights from Amman to the US, and back, via Shannon or Amsterdam.

Less than a decade, I used to smoke cigarettes in
Air France B747-400's on the way to/from JFK, there
was a special compartment called "open bar" or
something like that where addicted could kill a cigarette
or two...Now, I've heard this allowance has been
banned and all EU flights are 100% non smoking..!!
To be honest, I don't really care to wait the arrival even
while flying 15 hours to Asia, first of all, it's better for
non smokers and at last, it's difficult to describe the
pleasure of a first cigarette after so much hours...  Big thumbs up

NB; the best is stopping smoking.....  Sad

No flights originating and flying through Canadian Airspace can have smoking.

Yes, for shure! German's chater carrier "Air Berlin" (AB) and "Condor Flugdienst" (DE) offers smoking flights. I know it from a colleague. She have flown from CGN (Köln/ Bonn) to CAI (Kairo). The last 5-7 rows are smoking seats.

Holiday airlines are exempt from the ban, so Condor flights to the US and Canada (Florida, ANC, Whitehorse, possibly LAS and/or DEN) are still smoking.

That´s correct, but they don´t serve any transatlantic (i.e. Caribbean) destinations any more.
