Technically, I believe it's up to the Captain. Don't have current FARs with me. A FO is not going to get along very well if the Captain is a non-smoker. I have heard reports of F/As reporting smoking on the flight deck if they could smell it in the cabin! Funny story in this regard. Back in 89 when I smoked (i was a 3 pack a day smoker, before I quit!), I was on a DC-10 jumpseat from Hawaii to LAX. It was a nite flight and we were all just shooting the breeze. After about an hour and a half, I went to the lav. When I came back, all 3 on the flight deck were quickly putting out their cigarettes. They were trying to be courteous, because they didn't know I smoked. When I pulled my pack out, everybody had a big laugh.....all of us were having nicotine fits for that first 1 1/2 hours!!!
