I believe that Olympic Airways (Greece) used to allow smoking. I believe they stopped it about 2 months ago.

However, Aeroflot (Russian Internatioal Airlines) i believe still allows smoking.

My parents flew from Berlin to POP during christmass ( Condor 767) and they said it was a smoking flight!!! I was shocked. I tought all europeans airlines are not allowed to do that. I know Iberia used to allow smoking just a couple years ago.

I flew Air Malta a couple of years (3) ago, and they permitted smoking as well. Don't know if their policy has changed since then.

2 years ago I was on one of the last Condor DC10 on way from FRA-MEN. Smoking was allowed in the tail section what really surprised me!

All German holiday airlines except LTU allow smoking. So the article is not quite correct in saying Egyptair "is the only major international airline servicing Canada that hasn't yet prohibited smoking" - don´t forget Condor.

Anyway, please allow me to utter my general opinion on smoking in aeroplanes:
I´m a non-smoker myself, but I was on numerous smoking flights. I can tell you it´s not bad at all. Today´s ventilation systems must be so sophisticated, you hardly notice the smoke any more if you´re a few rows away.
However, from the safety point of view as well as to protect steward(esse)s from second hand smoke, I´m in favour of banning smoking on planes.

I flew with Aerolloyd (German) in August, 2000. The A320 had both smoking and non-smoking sections. Don't know if they have changed their policy since then.
