Hey all,

As all you Delta employees, retirees, and dependents are aware of, the NW/DL merged nonrev policy and TravelNet goes into effect on Tuesday 23JUN.

Beings I'll be joining the new TravelNet from the NW side, I have limited to no experience with the system and have a few questions regarding buddy pass travel if any of you DL folks could answer, I'd really appreciate it!!!

First, regarding buddy passes, how does that whole system work?? I was reading about it a bit, and it said that my buddy will have to enter his credit card online at the time of listing, correct?? This is what confuses me though - it made some mention of "converting the buddy pass ticket into an e-listing" or something along those lines. If someone could provide clarification on that, that would be great.

Secondly, I'm personally a flight benefit dependent of a current NW employee, and am looking at flying myself and a buddy pass rider on the same flight. Will we made separate listings in TravelNet, or can we list on the same PNR?? Any explanation on this would also be great!!

So yea, that's about all I have. I'm mostly looking for explanation on the payment and issuing of buddy passes, if someone could clarify that. Thanks in advance for all responses!!

I'm pretty sure you will have to be listed on different PNR's since one is a buddy pass and one is dependent travel.

When I buddy passed friends, usually they gave me their credit card info and I bought the ticket for them through the Travel Net. Mind you these were really close friends (as well as my brother and his fiance).

I did ATL-NRT-ATL non-rev and my friend did MHT-ATL-NRT-ATL-MHT on a buddy pass of mine, where we did the ATL-NRT-ATL legs together. When I got to the gate I just told the gate agent we would like to be seated together if at all possible and if it wasn't any extra work for them.

Worked out just fine.

Your still a dependant? I thought by now you would be too old for that Matt.. Anyway, yeah, they do have to enter a credit card online, however, from what I understand is that if it's a Northwest operated flight it will be deducted from the employee's paycheck (I know this is the way it will be for non-dependant children, like myself). There is info on TravelNet about it and your dad should have a little brochure on all the stuff.

Yea I got that but it didn't have any information about the listing procedures for buddy passes and stuff like that.

Well, basically, the first step is authorizing one of the buddy passes for use by your "buddy". Once this is done, you list them, using that authorization and of course doing the purchase. Once that is complete, you can send them the paperword from TravelNet, including the bar code that they can use at the kiosk to check in.

Since you are NW, though, I not really sure how that's going to work.....whether it can be by CC or via payroll deduction.
