Hello All

Well hell has finally frozen over.

Southwest is now taking part in ZED fare agreements. Goodbye ID90 & ID75 BS.

Now the question is, what is the best web based resources to find info on what airlines charge for ZED fares??

If you have any suggestions please feel free.

Cheers

Plus LH correct?

Let me get this straight. SW has NO agreements with other airlines for things like baggage transfers, or rebooking
passengers if one of its flights goes MX...but does have agreements to let its employees travel at greatly reduced rates?

It has a codeshare agreement/baggage agreement with ATA.

Southwest has had pass exchange agreements with other carriers since day one. It has nothing to do with interlining, baggage transfer, code share, or CYA in the event of mechanical type situations.

Initially, the only carrier that exchanged passes with Southwest was American....although Southwest offered any employee of any airline a space-available (NRSA) pass for $7.00 one way.

The joke used to be that Southwest could fill up the flight with NRSA passengers at seven dollars a head and make money. Back in 1972, the cost of running a flight between Dallas & Houston was roughly $680 on a full cost allocated basis. The 737-200s had 112 seats at the time, so $7 x 112 = $784.

Despite all the wrath and enmity and vitriol thrown at Southwest by Braniff management, a goodly number of Braniff hostesses would present their company ID and get a $7 ticket and fly...in their Pucci uniforms no less....from SAT or HOU to Dallas.

In those days Southwest sold their tickets out of a cash register and there was actually a key labelled "NRSA" that generated the $7 ticket.

The cash registers bring up another interesting tales....like "Keep management away from them!!!" When Southwest inaugurated the service to Harlingen, a former Harlingen mayor, motel owner, and Chamber of Commerce guy named George Young basically camped out wanting to buy the "First Southwest ticket for Valley service." (In fact, Mr. Young's motel served as Southwest's crew quarters for many, many years). Finally, Southwest's VP-Ground Ops agreed to sell Mr Young a ticket so he could go about his business.

The fare on the flight was $15.00 ----- unfortunately, the VP was much better at managing than he was at running a cash register --- because the ticket he sold from Harlingen to Houston came ut of the cash register for fifteen cents.

Maybe we haven't updated our agreement, but it still shows as $25 SA)">OW for SA travel on WN. I've worked for other airlines and for the last 10 or so years its been $25 +tax each way

I'm an HP/US employee here in PHX, and aside from any station agreements, I read that on Aug 15 (not quite sure) that SWA went ZED, and it specifically stated the $25 ow was out the window.

What is a "ZED fare agreement"?

Zone Employee Discount. It's a fare calculated according to a mileage zone (i.e. LAX-NYC is the same zone and fare than LAX-MIA despite any difference in published fares). It's for staff of airlines that wants to offer that to their employees. It is always stand-by and the family of the staff can usually travel at the same conditions.

25 one way was better than ZED in some ways especially Coast to Coast, now will be maybe 35 or so but a short hop flight could be 15 with a ZED, but 25 priceed from an WN Id90 did work better with longer routes vs a ZED

Well I would have to say that WN has been very liberal with its local station agreements since day 1. As for the $25 o/w fare, that came in very handy to fall back on, and will be missed. However most ZED fares are not that painful, compared to ID90s and ID75s. Everywhere I fly, I always have a WN backup pass in my possession. Even if Im overseas, and cant get back to my planned gateway city, I can land almost anywhere in the US and catch WN. The ZED fare change for WN is just a smart business move.

Well all I used was ID95 with NW

Id just route it all via BKK as the origin and connect via NRT to get a really cheap fare to just NRT from the US Big grin

With ICAO and IATA accounting codes being publicly available, might as well have given him the exact logon he needed, rather than attempt to obfuscate it. Took me 10 seconds to look up CO's code from a recent ticket to get in, just for kicks.

But not ALL ZED agreements are available for WN, only certain ZED agreements are available for each specific airline pass bureau.

FLYZED is just a listing site for LH and some others, but that does not mean you are allowed to fly on them unless your airline has an actual agreement. I dont think WN can fly ZED on TG, cause I beleive TG has no agreement between WN for pass travel.

That's nice to hear, since DL publishes the reduced rate agreements on the employee website and about the closest thing to a ZED fare that shows up is the agreement with WN. There is an ID95 or 96 w/ NW & CO.

DL does not yet participate in the ZED program although, as was mentioned, the program is being evaluated and it is expected to be implemented soon. DL only has an ID96 agreement in place with NW at this time.

Not really, you dont have full mainline privileges, which does hurt (lower priority than main DL or UA staff)
My friends at skywest say the benefits are very limited and also you cannot get sameday tickets at your own counter for other airline ZEDS, which is not very convenient (must wait for pass bureau to send you tickets)

my airline has over 90 airlines practically in agreements and its growing every day.
