Airlines And Smoking

Wed Nov 09, 2005 5:23 am

Out of interest, do any airlines still allow smoking onboard?

The last airline I know which allowed smoking was Air Berlin. The had selected smoking flights until the 1st of October last year. A few buddies and I flew to PMI on them and we were allowed to smoke, on the return flight to Germany was smoking already prohibited because it was 2nd of October.

In Airliners or Airways magazine, there was a trip report on an Aeroflot IL-62 SVO-Irkutsk-Hanoi. He reported that passengers never stopped smoking on the initial leg (domestic Russian).

Most international flights are non-smoking, including Aeroflot. I believe they are required to be, yes?

Depends which section of the aircraft you're in. As a pax, no  Smile, in the cockpit or the f/a rest cabins, that's another issue... left at the discretion of the airline (or the captain?). Outside the engine, there's sometimes some heavy smoke too, or behind the wheels at landing, but that's the only smoke I can think of...  bouncy 
When I doubt... go running!
