Well, almost anyone... Herb probably wouldn't qualify under 121.547(b)
alone, unless he had already been authorized by 121.547(a)4.

 121.547 Admission to flight deck.
   (a) No person may admit any person to the flight deck of an aircraft
unless the person being admitted is -
      (1) A crewmember;
      (2) An FAA air carrier inspector, or an authorized representative
of the National Transportation Safety Board, who is performing official
duties;
      (3) An employee of the United States, a certificate holder, or an
aeronautical enterprise who has the permission of the pilot in command
and whose duties are such that admission to the flight deck is necessary
or advantageous for safe operations; or
      (4) Any person who has the permission of the pilot in command and
is specifically authorized by the certificate holder management and by
the Administrator.

   Paragraph (a)(2) of this section does not limit the emergency
authority of the pilot in command to exclude any person from the flight
deck in the interests of safety.

   (b) For the purposes of paragraph (a)(3) of this section, employees
of the United States who deal responsibly with matters relating to
safety and employees of the certificate holder whose efficiency would be
increased by familiarity with flight conditions, may be admitted by the
certificate holder. However, the certificate holder may not admit
employees of traffic, sales, or other departments that are not directly
related to flight operations, unless they are eligible under paragraph
(a)(4) of this section.
   (c) No person may admit any person to the flight deck unless there is
a seat available for his use in the passenger compartment, except -
      (1) An FAA air carrier inspector or an authorized representative
of the Administrator or National Transportation Safety Board who is
checking or observing flight operations;
      (2) An air traffic controller who is authorized by the
Administrator to observe ATC procedures;
      (3) A certificated airman employed by the certificate holder whose
duties require an airman certificate;
{New-96-1 Revised Jan. 26, 1996, effective Feb. 26, 1996. The phrase,
"certificate holder" was, "carrier".}
      (4) A certificated airman employed by another certificate holder
whose duties with that certificate holder require an airman certificate
and who is authorized by the certificate holder operating the aircraft
to make specific trips over a route;
      (5) An employee of the certificate holder operating the aircraft
whose duty is directly related to the conduct or planning of flight
operations or the in-flight monitoring of aircraft equipment or
operating procedures, if his presence on the flight deck is necessary to
perform his duties and he has been authorized in writing by a
responsible supervisor, listed in the Operations Manual as having that
authority; and
      (6) A technical representative of the manufacturer of the aircraft
or its components whose duties are directly related to the in-flight
monitoring of aircraft equipment or operating procedures, if his
presence on the flight deck is necessary to perform his duties, and he
has been authorized in writing by the Administrator and by a responsible
supervisor of the operations department of the certificate holder,
listed in the Operations Manual as having that authority.
