Non-Rev Fees For Your Airline

Reading another topic on non-rev travel got me wondering....

If you are staff at an airline, how much (if any) money does your airline take from your pay check when you use your flight benefits?

For mine (YX), we get charged between $16.55 and $44.70 depending on the routing plus some other BS fees. Travel can be as high as $75 dollars RT. We do get one free pass per year.

One of the reasons I always fly FL. We have a counter to counter with FL and I fly for free. HP, WN and F9 among some others are also free. Kind of funny that I can't fly my own airline for free, but I can fly others free of charge. Oh well...

DL is free anywhere in the world, any class... you have to pay taxes for int'l and a $50 flat fee once a year, that's it.

Damn, that blows! Sheesh, I'm just now starting to complain because DL has gone to charging a once annual 50 dollars a year for all persons on your pass list, whether its 1 or 10. We were raising holy hell until we were informed that NW charges their people 50 dollars a year per person on the pass list. Then we shut up. If you don't fly, you don't need to pay the $50. I think most people will decide to pass the fee onto the first buddy pass rider of the year. Might as well, right? LOL

And when I look at it, its a damn good deal, really. Most other airlines charge their people and will either charge more or don't let their people in First Class if its available. Mine does. Heck, we usually even put OAL nonrev's in F if its avail, in the faint hope that they would return the favor one day. Never had it happen though for me.

Free at Delta... Free for all close relatives which include parents, spouses, and children. The children lose their free benefit and started paying a deeply reduced rate after they have graduated college. Free, unlimited flights domestically and in F if available. 18 one-way transatlantic trips per year in J Class if available. We pay about 15 bucks in taxes for those. That's pretty much it. OH and 90 percent practically every other airline in the world and a couple of ID95's and ID96's on some.

It sounds great, till you get stuck somewhere. Remember, it's called "NON REV" for a reason. Somebodies family dog gets on the plane before you do.

CO varies with time in service. You get x amount of free passes a year. After 10 years you fly free in coach, after 25 free in first if available.

For non-rev travel on our own airline and regional affiliate by employee, spouse and dependents, applicable international taxes only are payroll deducted, typically $15-60 per person depending on destination country. Domestic travel by same, zero.

Non-rev travel on other airlines is paid directly at time of ticketing rather than payroll deducted.

Your CEO is a genius. I admire him. I would help the airline I work for without a problem even if he didn´t make me clean the plane before deplaning. And I know he also does it, well at least that´s what it says in the book and for a guy like Neeleman, I realy think he does it because he loves the airline he created. I can only say good things about him after reading his and other CEO´s books.

taxes to the caribbean also, and those are paid with a credit card at the employee travel center (online tool to make reservations) or at the counter those are not deducted from the payroll.
Zones are base fares of $30, $60, plus taxes for guest passes.
Well it helped me a little taking calls for the employee line for US.
But I'm not an employee with the airline, just outsourced, so no benefits.

F9- Free unlimited travel for employee, parents, spouse/companion, and dependent children. Employees need not travel with their designated pass travelers in order for them to fly. Designated pass riders fly at the employee's seniority. International taxes apply for international flights. In lieu of the designated mother, father, and/or spouse/companion, employees may place friends, neighbors, relatives, or anyone they choose. Such 'companions' may travel unlimited at the employee's seniority with or without the employee, but must pay the standard buddy-pass fee ($25 each way + $2.50 per segment).

Cheers!

I've booked multiple guest pass trips for people and the most any leg comes out to is 43.85. This goes for multiple connections, transcon etc.

For airport facility charges, security fees, but that is for domestic flights, even if you make multiple connections the base fare will be the same, what will change is the taxes, but then for international is a little bit more expensive, more taxes and the base fare is higher also.

BA - no F class option for the majority of us, M (Y) class only, but upgradeable to W/J if oversold.

Eligibility as follows:
6mths - 7 years service - Unlimited 90% standby
7yrs - 10 yrs service - Unlimited 90% standby plus one 100% (free) standby
10yrs - 20yrs service - Unlimited 90% standby plus one 100% standby OR one 90% bookable (confirmed)
20yrs - 30yrs service - Unlimited 90% standby plus one 100% bookable
30+ yrs service - Unlimited 90% standby plus one 100% bookable plus one 90% bookable OR one 100% standby

As you can see, the benefits at the US carriers are much more generous, but then again, BA is the worlds most profitable airline, and apparently, the only major airline where staff travel is a source of income!

BA calls them ID90's, but they're not really, because the fares are based on mileage, plus taxes. ID90's are traditionally 10% of the Y-class fare.

We use a fares matrix for our staff travel, as follows:
(All fares are one-way, in GBP)

151-450 miles from London - £11.00
451-750 miles from London - £15.50
751-1600 miles from London - £18.00
1601-3200 miles from London - £27.50
3201-4080 miles from London - £30.50
4081-6100 miles from London - £36.50
6101-9000 miles from London - £44.00
9001+ miles from London - £64.50

At KLM we use a similar system. We also pay the taxes and fuelsurcharge on
our ticket + a new governmenttax on stafftravel.
That's how I ended up paying 220Euros for AMS-LAX-AMS ticket. Wich is still
a cheap way to travel but not really worthy of stafftravel.

Noboby still uses stafftravel on intra-european flights cos you will always find a cheaper lowcost then flyin g yoyr own airline at reduced prices.
Just out of curiousity I checked how much it would cost me to non-rev
AMS-BRU-AMS (about 250KM) and it was 101,20Euros!!!!!!

We can travel unlimited as can our spouse/registered partner and our children
until they hit 21, after wich all their benefits are cancelled.
No special deals for parents whatsoever.
We can however, twice a year , bring two friends/parents/... at the same rate
we pay, but only when we ourselves are non-revving to, not when we're on
duty, so that deal kinda sucks to.
