While I appreciate your good intentions, my advice would be the following. Unless otherwise directed by the captain or documented company policy; you should ALWAYS go up front to introduce yourself to the crew and ask for the ride. The captain has the final say on whether you go or not. Additionally, the captain needs to know what assets are on-board in case of an emergency. This increases CRM and is reason enough to go forward. In short, if a "no-ask" policy DOES exist and you ask anyway, you'll get a "Mulligan" and no one will be upset. If a company "no-ask" policy DOES NOT exist and you just hop in a seat without saying hello - you could be tossed off the plane.

Does that help clear it up?
