..I am assuming you are on the right seat ??..Just tell your Captain you will get a severe allergic reaction from exposure to nicotine..So if he still chooses to smoke just start a serious coughing feast, and if needed, throw in some convulsions etc..

Tell him that there is a good chance that he will eventually die a very slow and painful death from lung cancer.

Smoking in the flightdeck. The hallmark of every shitty airline on the planet.

Amen to that !
An airline with cockpit smoking is often accompanied with an incredible arrogance and over inflated opinions of their actual flying ability... safety is often compromised!
VNA should first concentrate on making sure their 787s have their gear up, especially climbing out of LHR!

It is not new in here. After an A321 and an A330 , why not leaving the gear down in the Boeing family ?

Was there as an FO 7 years ago, and I was a smoker then, I loved it. Quit when I joined an airline in another part of the world, now back in Asia and itís normal for someone to ask if you mind if they light up,m, I heard of a few ill mannered foreigners pissing off local FOs regarding this issue, thus jobless a few weeks later. Donít know if thereís any truth in that though.
I think when I was in VNA, there was a rule about 1 cig per 30 min? But who adhered to that then ?? And for sure theyíll never change, let emí be..

Smoking is still prohibited in all VNA aircraft; someone in another forum posted about the importance of being respectful flying as an Expat in SE Asia; where is the respect to comply with regulations and rules here, not to mention the non-smokers who do not wish to participate in the slow suicide..?

"ia1166"... check the safety journals. French & German ATC not very impressed. I was in the airspace on one occasion.

Being an anonymous forum, I wonder if this is actually the widespread view of others in the aviation community?

Hope I'm wrong but would be interesting to see.
