Do any of these requests actually pay off with a positive result?

I call bollocks on that one.
Chances of getting upfront without knowing the crew is slim to naught, with or without a license.

Just remember to log the cojo time properly in the logbook.
I should have clarified my statement.

Guys, please don't detract from what this thread is about ... requests to visit the front end.

Idle banter just detracts from this thread.

Hi,

I have three flights booked in the near future.

December 17th: SA2062 08h25 PE -> JNB
December 18th: SA2041 08h40 JNB -> DURBAN
December 18th: SA1334 17h10 DURBAN -> PE

I just recently obtained my NPL LSA, if there's any chance on one of these flights I would love to experience it from the pointy end. :)

Hi Capt and FO...

I will be flying from Lusaka to Cape Town (via JHB) on 2 January 2019:

1. SA063 LUN-JHB
2. SA357 JHB-CPT

I have a NPL (LSA & GYR) and I am a keen RV builder... Should the possibility exists for, this would be a once-in-a-lifetime-dream come true to get a jumpseat on either of these flights.

Thanks in advance.

Jacques I think I am right in saying that SAA do not allow pax into the cockpit unless they have a 'Cockpit Pass', and these are very hard to come by. :(
