Re: Any tips on getting the crew to let you in the cockpit?

Just ask. I always ask a FA later during the flight when they are not too busy if I can visit after arriving at the gate. Every time the flight has not been on a 777 I've been successful (excluding TG which is always never). Every 777 flight I've been rejected, even when flying in J. Don't know why ...
