I am on the Monday 7.50 Luton - Glasgow flight, returning Friday afternoon, every week for the next seven or eight weeks.
Any helpful and friendly easyjet crew out there able to offer advice on getting a jumpseat ride (or two?) :D
Just ask once you're aboard. Depends on workload, space on the flightdeck, Captain's mood, etc. All things being equal, we're usually delighted to see you for a flightdeck visit, can't promise a jumpseat though.

Guys you do not get it, Red_Devil is asking
for a jumpseat-ride the American way.
Show your credentials to the gate agent
(ATPL and Airline ID), fill out a jumpseatform, maybe show your credentials a
second time to the Captain and you are on
the jumpset. FREERIDE!
... The American way, the South-american way and in Europe, only the Spanish way. It should be "the all Captains in the world way". Get them "gate officers" out of the picture and get all flight crew members of the world, no matter the airline, country, union, mood... fly any other crew. This world would be nicer... and easier to get to work!!
Exactly how it should be all over the world! The jumpseat ought to be the skippers' seat. After all, being the commander and being responsible of everything else regarding the a/c, it makes you wonder why airlines don't rely on their captains enough to let them have the final 'say-so' of a single unoccupied seat in our office.
