As for passengers, I think Aeroflot let's them smoke. Almost all airlines let do it some time ago. In Lithuanian Airlines, I remember, everyone was able to smoke if sitting at 14th seat or farther in back. This was cancelled in 1996 or so.

The majority votes it's a ball point pen... Now that I've looked at it more carefully, I think it is too.  Smile

Yes, it is a great shot.

passengers are not allowed to smoke on most airlines.
Many countries also have a ban on smoking in the workplace, which would cover aircraft crew.
Beyond that, it makes little sense to prevent passengers from poisoning each other with smoke if the crew then goes ahead and injects their own poison gas into the airconditioning system.

In Indonesian jets, most pilots smoke during flights, as smoking is allowed on most airlines where the duration is over 1hr. One condition is that the ashtray has to be secured. Captain will say when to put the ciggies in the ashtray. on the 732, middle jumpseater must not smoke as soon as the plane is entering base leg or in case of direct approach, when they switch to tower freq because it's ashtray cannot be secured. Below 500 feet, ashtrays must be secured. Funny eh ? Policies vary between companies. Most of them still allow cockpit smoking during cruise.
