What is the point of this topic? I seem to be a little lost here.

Ok, thanks.

Hey I've got a few questions that you may be ablt to help me answer.

-Can I use my passes on other Star Alliance Carriers?
-You know the "SouthWest Letter", can I use that on other carriers? In the letter, there is nothing saying it's in regards to Southwest. All it says is that my dad works for UA and has his seniority. It allows me to walk up to Southwest, and pay 10% of the regular fare, and go.

Thanks

You can't use your write your own passes for Star carriers. You'd need to have your dad pick up and fill out a ticket request (10 days for Int'l), or you can pick them up at the NRSA check in desk (position 1-2) @ SFO, or any city ticket office (they are thin white strips that look similar to a w.y.o ticket).

Fill the slip out, drop it off at any of the three places mentioned above (or have your dad take it to operations with him), and it should be waiting for you to pay for it in (at the most) 10 days (four days for domestic).

I've found it particularly helpful to go to the city ticket offices about :15 before they close, and see if they can process the entire thing right there. 9/10 times, it works.

Never heard of the SouthWest Letter...maybe I'd better start looking into that! Not sure if you'd want to pay 10% of WN's walk-up fare, though (the basis for all airline-discounted tickets). I think WN is still offering a $25/leg deal though, for employees and their dependents.

One interesting thing, one of my friend's dad is a pilot for DL, and he was talking about how they don't have paper tickets, but rather a credit-card type thing which stores all of the information a paper ticket would need. All they have to do is present the travel card to the CSR, who swipes it through their reader. Really beats having to carry around ticket stock...it's never there when you need it the most! The card would make it so much simpler...

Come to think of it, didn't UA try this a few years ago? (maybe 5)? I know my mom has her UA travel card, with imprinted seniority date and name, and I know I signed a few papers a few years ago with my mom and dad so that we'd each get a DL-like card...hhhmmm....have to talk to Jimmy G. about that one...

VS and BA are the cheapest of the four eh, and they both have arguably the greatest services across the Atlantic and around the world.


When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Fly...

If you are interested I'll send you an email copy of the letter. All it does is allow me to walk up and pay 10% of the regular fare.

Your mom is a flight attendant right? If she is in SFO, I can produce some names of people that can get the sothwest letter. One of those people used to work with my dad over at the MOC, now he runs SFOSW, or something like that.

Definitly! Please do! That would be great!

A quick question- can we non-rev on foreign airlines operating within the US, such as QF LAX-JFK, BA SAN-PHX, or NZ LAX-HNL? I haven't received anything difinitive from anyone either on the forum, or at United...

I dont believe that you can. If you were to take BA from SAN to PHX, well you have to go to London. All international carriers can do is pick up people, and do a crew change in a stop city. There can be no drop offs.

If you are going on BA from PHX to SAN well its the same thing, but pax can deplane in PHX but no new pax can board.

I believe that if the lets say were dealing with codeshare flights, and British Airways flight XXX were to change to AA flight XXX then it may be possible, because foreign carriers are allowed to operate in the US under codeshare...i think

Cool, when I spent 120,000 FF miles to fly first class LAX-LHR i was sitting next to a guy who payed 13k. There was a family on the FC section who had an entire seat for their baby who was probably 1 yr old, geez.

Fly - whether you can do the domestic travel on foreign airlines depends on the interline agreement. If the interline fare is based on full fare travel, like an ID-90, the you can't, because fares are not published for the domesic legs. However, if the fare is based on distance, like the interline agreement between oneworld carriers, then it is permissable.

Also, AA uses a travel card like Delta's. The employee and spouse each have one, and they travel ticketless. Dependents also travel ticketless when going with a travel card holder, but I need a ticket to travel alone.
