None in this Country. It's a Federal law.

Wouldn’t it be great if flights were guaranteed to be free from screaming and tantrums? Air travel is stressful enough without little munchkins kicking the back of our seats once we settle in for the cramped flight.
There is no way you can "escape" it during the flight. The best bet is to take noise cancelling headphones with you.

I don't know of any other country either. I don't think any significant airlines still permit smoking. On private planes and charters, perhaps.

I think there is a possibility to smoke an e-cigarette, but I am not sure which airline does allow it.

What are you flying on some Nigerian cargo airline or something? It's 2011, what airline/government allows smoking on aircraft?

It is confusing because on some airlines when you make reservations you have the option of smoking or non smoking section. The non smoking section is near the front and the smoking section is the middle to back. But they are not talking about passenegers smoking, they are talking about the aircraft smoking.

As far as the family section, that's what Air New Zealand is doing with their Skycouch.

Its been a while but last time I flew into Frankfurt (yes more than 5 years ago) they had people smoking in the last 3 rows. It was Lufthansa.

No more smoking in Lufthansa, but the airport stinks... lots of people still smoke in Germany, and in Europe

Sure it wasn't more than 10 years ago? According a press release I found, Lufthansa hasn't allowed smoking since March of 1998.

Inside the airport is a different story; plenty of airports have smoking lounges.
