Photography In The Cabin.

Sun May 15, 2005 3:44 am

Hello

I have yet to ever take a photo in the cabin, As for a few reasons.

First of all, I always think it is not allowed, as it says sometimes u cannot have electrical goods onboard playing. (EG. CD player, listening to music)

Also, I have not taken one as I feel a bit odd taking it....People must look @ you, And the cabin crew would think u r trying to do something.

I question are:

Are you allowed to take photo's?
Do you feel odd taking them?
And have u ever got "told off" for taking them?

Thanks

Dude, Please don't say you took it seriously when we said you was not allowed a CD player on a flight??

Jimmi,

The key point here is not making yourself too apparent. I will usually only take cabin shots when I'm flying long haul, mainly because there will be "enough hours" to get the right opportunity to shoot some cabin shots. What I mean by this is, not in the middle of the meal service etc.

As for being allowed to take cabin shots, some airlines have different policies to the next. I will take pictures at my own risk, and if I am told not to by any member of the crew, then I will obey and stop immediately.

As for feeling odd, no way! You will be surprised how many "normal" pax actually take shots inside an aircraft! I've bumped into many along the way who I've had a damn good conversation with about photography and aviation.

On Northwest (LGW-DTW), Myself and Chris Sharps were spoken to by one of the Pursers who said a passenger was concerned about what were doing taking pictures. She basically said she didn't have a problem with us doing this, and explained to the passenger that we were just doing it out of pleasure and not to be too alarmed by us.

Hope this helps,

Regards,
Justin  Smile

PS: This has been discussed before, I think.

Yeah, you do get some funny looks, but just ignore them, most of the time the Cabin crews are more than happy to let you snap away through the windows, but you must be careful when taking shots of the cabin that you do not get any recognizable parts of people in them. Its best to walk to the back of the aircraft and ask a crew member there, if they're ok with it take a picture looking back down aisle. Or, just as effective wait until the very end of the flight when everyone else has got off and ask then, depending how the flightcrew are feeling you can have a look at the coackpit as well.

I only once been told to stop taking pictures out of the windows, although it was with Air China, and a Swedish Ryanair stewardess had a fit earlier in the year when I asked if I could photograph the cabin, but those have been the only times so far.

The main reason for not using electrical equipment at such a critical time i.e.: take off and landing is for safety reasons.

Jimmi,

As far as I know, there are almost no airlines having special policies about photography. The only one I know is AA, in fact!

I took dozends of cabin shots so far, never got told off. Just go and shoot, won't be a big deal, especially in Europe.

If you don't want to get ( odd like you call them... ) looks, just go back to the lav, enter it, and when you exit again, snap a few photos. Then return to your seat, hardly anybody will notice ( if you don't use flash ).

I flew BWIA and got told off for deliberately taking a photo from my seat - though it seems OK if you are taking pictures of family/friends.

If you really wanted you could wait until landing and take a photo then, though if you're flying Thomsonfly they may be on a short turnaround so may deny your request.

You should try it on American Airlines. Me and Kev almost got in a whole heap of s**t for taking cabin pics last time. Although to their credit the F/A's were very nice about it. Not sure what they would have said if we were down the back with the cattle though  Wink

Qantas clearly state in their inflight magazine that photography is permitted at all times onboard Qantas aircraft (inflight, take off and landing included) however videography is only allowed during the cruise. However, if your photography is for commercial reasons approval from Qantas must be obtained prior to taking photos.

Having this clearly stated is a great thing and this sort of forward thinking by Qantas should be applauded.

Does ElAl allow them [cabin shots]? I don't see one in the data base.

Just pure curiosity...

Dan, I have tried it on AA sitting in both Biz and Eco and both times i was lucky enough to get a friendly csm! One of their cabin crew got all snotty, but i mentioned the csm had said i could and he shut up! hehe They do like to ruffle feathers on that airline! hehe!
