Cockpit And Cabin Tours

Thu Jun 10, 1999 1:07 am

Does anyone know where you can get tours of a 747 interior or cockpit. AA has this thing that I did where after you flight is over, you can wait till the passengers get off the plane and then go sit in the cockpit. Can you do this with other airlines???

I was on a Delta 767 from Dallas to Orlando and before the flight left the gate i went up to the cockpit. He showed me what the switches did and I got to sit in the Captains chair and mess with some of the buttons. Also, it was brand new.

Most airlines are glad to have you in the cockpit before or after the flight while the plane is at the gate. Northwest is the only airline I know of that does not allow cockpit tours. Otherwise, it's a blast to go up there!
