How's it going. Are there any WN employees available that can tell me how many Non-Revs are listed on the following flights today:





I know how many seats are available, but the Res people have no way of telling me if people are listed already.

Hopefully, somebody will be able to check the numbers for you but without access to a computer at a gate or ticket counter that kind of info is tough to come by. Sadly, we don't have any kind of home access to info on loads. For the most part, we are stuck calling res and getting the same vague answers as everyone else.

I don't know if this will help but I did want to point out that the number of non-revs or the order in which you list for a flight does not determine the order in which you will be boarded. The stand-by list is started at the gate one hour prior to the depature. Everything before that is just to get your bags checked and get you through security. If you are the first off-line non-rev in line when the CSA starts the standby list, once the revenue standbys and on-line employees have been accomodated you will be boarded. It doesn't matter how many other off-line nonrevs have listed...or when they listed, if you are first on the list, you are first to get on the flight. Also the number of non-revs booked on flights can be deceptive as many double or triple book thinking that listing with reservations actually adds them to the standby list. There is really no way to know how much "competition" you will have until you actually show up at the gate.

Sorry, if that was information that you already had. If not, hope it helps. Not sure where you are headed but one other thing to keep in mind it that we have a flight attendant class starting tomorrow so there will be 150+ trainees from throughout the system non-reving their way to the big "D". At any rate non-reving on a Sunday in the middle of Spring Break is gutsy....best wishes!

You need to call WN reservations for this information. They'll then be able to tell you about pax loads.
