Have A Look In The Cockpit, Possible?

Mon Jan 17, 2005 4:09 pm

Im flying AMS - JFK on Delta in 2 weeks time.
Very excited. My first flight ever across the pond and first time in 767.

What are the regulations on Delta on having a look in the cockpit?
Is it even possible to ask the cabin crew if its possible or will I be rejected because fear of hi-jacking?

You will most probably be entertained if you asked for a visit while the aircraft is still at the gate and doors hasn't been closed yet. After arrival when the aircraft is at the gate will also be fine. Done that many times on US carriers.

The only time one might be able to view the inside of the cockpit of a US-registered airline is when it's at the gate. No visitors in-flight.

OPNLguy has got it spot on. On the ground some flight crews may let you enter depending on how busy they are I guess. But in the air it is now prohibited for anybody to enter the flight deck on most if not all of the worlds airlines, and certainly American ones.
