Hello fellow aviation geeks. Question:

Does AA and DL have pda or regular websites that posts current standby lists like CO's: pda.continental.com?

Refresh Flight Standby List

Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I know if I’m on the list?
How are standbys prioritized?
Why does this list keep changing?
Who is included on the standby list?
If I should be on the list, how do I get on it?
What if I’m standing by for First Class?

Above is an example of CO's pda website for flight 107. All the most important information is available.

I recently flew standby on AA and was placed on the stanby list, but couldn't find a link on AA.com for a stanby list.

My parents flew yesterday standby on DL and I couldn't find a stanby list link on their website.

I am missing something here? Why wouldn't other competitors to CO/UA offer the same services on the web? I find it astounding that such import information, such as the pecking order to clear both coach and first class not available on aa.com and delta.com.

Is it because CO's online web technology is far more advanced than other competitors?

DL has its upgrade standby lists available for customers booked on a specific flight with an upgrade request that hasn't cleared at Delta.com.

I've heard AA's iphone app displays a standby list if one is listed on the standby list, but I haven't tried myself.

On DL's website, you have to check in online before you are allowed to see the upgrade list.

Almost assuredly not. It is a very nifty tool, though, to be sure.

One of the best things about CO, especially if you're a nonrev.

I hate playing the guessing game when I'm on UA or another carrier.

I hope these features survive.



In thrust we trust!

It's cool what CO has done, but it's hardly as critical a piece of information as you make it sound. If you are flying standby you need to be in the airport anyway, so you should be able to look at a screen or ask an agent (or do what standby passengers have done for decades, wait to be called.) This falls under the "nice but wholly unnecessary" heading. If other competitors don't offer the service, it's because they don't think it's worth the investment.

Now the First Class Stand-by list is absolutely critical if you haven't gotten your upgrade yet!!! 

Some of us are extremely spoiled with the CO upgrades, that is if you know how best to use it to your advantage. Can't wait, oh wait, yes I can wait, to see exactly how this merger of equals as smizy calls it is going to come out in the wash.

I have yet to venture into uncharted waters and gotten on the UA website, do they have the upgrade and flight stand-by lists available as well?

CO is definitely ahead of the game as far as that tool. But then again they need it more - they are probably the toughest US airline to get upgraded on overall.

Great feature. It is a heck of a lot easier than firing up apollo and looking there.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Another really neat thing about CO's flight status is the ability to check on an incoming plane, i.e. flight 2716 has this tidbit right now

"Aircraft: Embraer RJ145 aircraft #200
Where is this aircraft coming from? Houston, TX (IAH - Intercontinental), Flight 2715 Check Status"

That's a big plus for me. Being able to know the incoming flight's status has saved me average 3-4 hours per month of unnecessary wait time at the airport. I fly mostly on AA and can typically figure out incoming flights by gate # or typical roundtrip rotations, except when departing from say MIA where it's pretty much impossible. The CO tool would be great to have.
