I just read on our company site that Delta had joined the ZED program in conjunction with CO, AS & NW.
Not being very familiar with ZED, can someone explain to me exactly how it works? Thanks for any & all help, hope everyone's having a great day.

Tchau

ZED was formed in 1994 to simplify leisure travel arrangements for airline employees travelling on another carrier. The system of ID fares (ID90, ID50, etc. ...

Google it....

ZED = Zonal Employee Discount.

Check out www.gozed.com

It's an industry-wide program for non-rev travel. Gives you a lower priority, but allows you to go to many more places than just served by your current carrier.

Quote:
From www.gozed.com:
ZED Fare Pricing is a ZED Fares travel planning area where employees from participating ZED airlines can look up discount ZED fares and flight schedules. ZED agreement information such as eligibility criteria, embargoes and unique fare pricing are automatically applied to the trip itinerary.

If you are unsure if your airline is participating with goZED's ZED Fare Pricing tool or have forgotten your access password please contact your staff travel office.

ZED (zonal employee discount) fares are published based on mileage flown, and there are three price tiers - Zed High, Zed Medium, and Zed Low. The decision on whichever tier is used is part of the agreements between various participating carriers. The main advantage is that a ZED ticket is (supposedly, anyway) completely interchangeable between participating carriers - there's no need to get backup passes on other airlines that participate in the program.

Most typically use Zed Medium, although from what I'm told many carriers that are marketing partners will sometimes go for the Zed Low rates, as they're obviously less expensive.

DL has been in the ZED program for quite some time now. DL shows on my list with KLM ZED partners and I am positive I have flown them on ZED fares ATL-RSW in 2005 and 2006.

DL has also been on the NWA ZED list for a couple years, although I do have to admit, that the DL agents were not at all familiar with the program when presented with a ZED ticket.

Errr, Delta employees use ID fares... Usually ID90 and in some cases ID95, ID96, or ID75.

Ia Orana All !

Evan767, I believe DL's employees use ID fares within DL but believe me when I tell you that DL has been a ZED carrier for other airlines just like AF.
I also remember that at the beginning of skyTEAM there was a ZS fare where it was cheaper but you could only take it on skyTEAM carriers and it wasn't possible to fly on other airlines with that fare.
I used Delta ZED tickets on the following routes CDG-CVG-DFW-CVG, MIA-ATL, LAX-JFK-LAX, HNL-LAX and never had any problems !

Happy Flying,

AF Cabin Crew

Errr...Beginning 1 February, ZED fares on the specified airlines only. ID fares elsewhere. Eventually all airlines will ZED with Delta. BTW, Aerolineas Argentinas ZEDs with DL already.

There's more info on TravelNet.

If Delta employees use ZED on Aerolineas Argentinas, what do they use on everything else?

ZED fares work on mileage or zone.

For example:

Zone / Mileage / Medium Fare / High Fare

1 / 1 - 450 / $25 USD / $31 USD
2 / 451 - 750 / $29 / $41
3 / 751 - 1600 / $36 / $49
4 / 1601 - 3200 / $51 / $78
5 / 3201 - 4080 / $58 / $97
6 / 4081 - 5000 / $66 / $112
7 / 5001 - 6100 / $72 / $122
8 / 6101 - 7100 / $86 / $148
9 / 7101 - 9999 / $97 / $164

You wanted to go from CDG-LAX. The mileage is 5669, zone 7. The fare would be $72.00 for meduim fare and $122.00 for high fare. Not including taxes. Space available. Employees and dependants are charged the medium fare and parents, the high fare.

With a ZED fare and the interchangeable part does one need to call any 800 number or just walk up to a ticket counter and request to be listed.

Depends on the carrier. Most you list with their employee res number or regular 800 number. The website www.flyzed.com is another way to list for others. Most, if not all, require you to get your ticket through your pass bureau before going to their ticket counter.

FYI, This is for DL, OH, DL Tech, Etc... Employees flying on NW, AS, and CO right now. DL may have published ZED for other airlines employees, but I know this is new for the DL employees on other airlines. Previously, if one wanted to fly on NW, they would be the purchase of an ID95 fare, which was still kinda high, for some routes, for NRSA

I am a frontline (OH / DL / UAX ) employee, and I just received this info today. I was introduced to ZED fares just last week, during UA Ticketing class. (I know you ask, why am I a DL / OH frontline employee in a UA ticketing class?  Smile That's another subject entirely. )

Hope this helps,
Alex

Depends on the agreement, UA gets C class fares on LH.

In this case of the three negotiated so far AS, CO and NW. DL has secured a C international/domestic F agreement with CO. NW and AS are Y only. I hope that the AF agreement will be a C class or higher agreement since they are DL closest partner.
