Hi guys, I was just looking around the skybus website and realized under benefits of working for the company, there is no mention of flight benefits. Is this something they do not offer their employees? Also, they are currently accepting reservations through March 6th; does anyone know when tickets will go on sale for March 7th onwards, or is this top secret?

They're like WN...they release reservation slots in blocks. 90-120 days is a normal minimum, so they'll probably release the next block in October or November.

The employees get flight benefits.

Does this include the actual employees: management, FA's and flight crew only? Or do they exend those to the subcontracts who do all their ground work such as DAL, or "Pacific Western Aviation" etc.?

No airline I've ever worked for extended flight benefits to non airline employees, unless they were contractors on company business.

No, it's only for SX employees, and the employees parents.

However in the bidding process for ground services, the company gets money from the airline. Therefore Skybus is responsible as well.

Not 100% true. It is not up to Skybus to ensure its ground handling contract pays its employees. Skybus could have paid for the services, and it was the subcontract that failed to manage the money correctly. Pacific Western Aviation is obviously poorly managed.
