I know that being let into the cockpit of a plane during the flight is basically impossible nowadays, but it does happen occasionally, and I've been lucky enough to experience it myself on a short hop with a (now bankrupt) regional airline.
Basically I was wondering if there was anything I could do to maximize the odds of actually managing to be let in, either during the flight itself or on the ground. Of course I get there are tons of factors involved and post-9/11 regulations are incredibly strict, but a man can dream, right?
