I have been flying Swissair for about 12 years every other month and I never had the chance to be there during an interesting flight procedure, although I have asked (always unsuccesfully) to be in the cockpit for the landing. By the way I have been in the cockpit for landing in Olympic airways. On a more general note: what is the situation about this on different airlines. I know it is officially (ICAO ?) not permitted, but would be interested on experience by others in the newsgroup. D. Tombros.
