Sorry to bother you guys - this is aimed primarily at employees of CO, but if anyone else has used this airline on staff tickets and has any useful info...many thanks in advance!
I'm hoping to fly SEA-IAH-EZE with CO - approx date would be around 27th Feb....as a BA employee, do CO require staff of other airlines to list on their flights, or are they expected to simply turn up at check-in for the desired flight? In addition to this, if anyone could give me an indication as to how busy the EZE flight is on that date, that would be of great help. I was thinking of simply purchasing a rev ticket for the domestic portion, but I would stand to pay quite a lot more than the non-rev price.

The 26th has 2 J seats, and 2 Y seats.
The 27th is oversold in J, and has 4 Y seats
the 28th is full in J, and has 13 Y seats
The only thing is, what pass classification do you travel on, as a BA employee. I'm just wondering this, in case you get bumped for a CO employee, or his/her family etc! EZE is one of our busiest routes, so i'd say its tough enough to get on!

I'm not sure what you mean by pass classification? Our rebate agreement with CO is ZM...other than this, I'm not sure what info you're looking for.
In any case, thanks for the load info and the tip on the EZE flight being busy...I've re-worked my itinerary and will now be hoping to leave on the 28th...will get back-ups with other carriers if I get bumped off CO, but keeping my fingers crossed!
Would they allow crew from another airline to use spare jumpseats in the cabin? I'm licensed on the 76 if that helps...

According to GG PASS BA he would be an SA5P07

I don't know about Flight Attendants but I do not show BA on the reciprical jumpseat list for Pilots/Dispatchers. Even if there was one you can not ride jumpseat (offline) on international sectors per TSA rules.
