Got this today:
I am an admirer of your photograph of our Allegiant Air aircraft on approach at DIA. Would it be possible to receive permission to use this image as a composagraph or in some other format on our website, on our intranet or potentially for some other airline use? I appreciate your consideration.
So, I assume since this will be for a commercial use, I would not be out of line in asking for compensation, correct. Now, for the tricky part. I don't want to quote too high of a price and scare them away, but I'd like to make it worth my while. Of course, they may just ask around until they find a real cheap offer or someone offering it for free. Let's hear the advice!

I don't shoot for money either, but it's nice to get an offer with the possibility of some income every so often. You might get some offers when you get the D-Rebel! I'm excited! Seems Denver has gone from an F7x7 town to a 300D town.

If it is just on their employee site let them use it for free as long as you are cited. If it goes on their public page, I would start the bidding at $200 per photo depending where on the page. $400 for homepage!

I see three different usage licenses, all with different pricetags:
1. Use this image as a composagraph or in some other format on our website.
(you need to know where on the website, and how big the image will be before you can set a price)
2. On our intranet.
(you need to know for what purpose they will use it)
3. Potentially for some other airline use.
(impossible to set a price, you need to know what those airlines will use the image for, how many copies, size etc etc)
At this point you can't set a reasonable price because you don't know what they will use your image for.
