ZED-ticket Price Hike, Your Airline Too?

The airline I work for has introduced quite a price hike on their employee ZED tickets, sometimes up to 30% depending on route and class on 1 October. A question to all the airline employees here, has your airline done the same?

Quoting Airevents (Thread starter):

my airline: 2 EUR domestic and continental, 4 EUR on international flights, but if I'm not mistaken every airline will adjust their prices as this is an agreement/descision with all participating airlines.

Clarify something for me. Aren't the ZED fares based on the lowest unrestricted fares available or is that just ID90's/96's/75's?

ZED = Zonal Employee Discount. You pay a certain price based on the miles (zones)

Basically, you pay based on the mialage. The longer the flight.. the higher the number of zones, and naturally the higher the fare. Mixed in with this computation is the difference in ZED fares. ZED L, M or H for Low Medioum or High. L, M, or H is determined by the arlines agreement with another airline.

SO.. For instance, you can travel 9000+ miles for a flat ZED fare (provided, you have an agreement with a ZED zarrier)

OR pay a percentage of the highest unrestricted fare. AT ID90, 10% of A $4,000 unrestricted fare would be $400.00

In many cases, its much cheaper if you can fly on the ZED ticket

Think I got the basics down. Anyone else please add and/or correct me if I've missed anything..

At AA we use ZEDM
And they have gone up.

1- 450 IDZM1 25.00
451- 750 IDZM2 29.00
751-1600 IDZM3 36.00
1601-3200 IDZM4 51.00
3201-4080 IDZM5 58.00
4081-5000 IDZM6 66.00
5001-6100 IDZM7 72.00
6101-7100 IDZM8 86.00
7101-9999 IDZM9 97.00

It is not the end of the world but it is just another way to get more money out of employees who are not even close to making what they were before 9/11.
I am so glad all the top execs got their big bonus this year.

ZED tickets are stand-by. Although once when browsing though the SABRE focus system, I did see a chart for ZED confirmed fares. It was gone by the end of the day. I should have printed it out! The fares were for roughly twice the normal ZED fare. What a deal though!!!

Has anyone here ever purchased or used a ZED confirmed ticket?

EDIT: I'll check our ZED rates tomorrow if I can find the time.

The ZED table is universal for all carriers worldwide.

It increases (never decreases) and the price will be the same for ZM ZL ZH

So whenever the table is updated, it is updated for every airline in the world that are in the ZED program.

Kudos to Emirates, one of the few carriers to offer upgrade opportunites for offline airline employees. I recently paid an ID75, and....well here are the pictures:

I have been non-revving since I was a kid. I grew up in an airline family, and I remember when it was commonplace to fly offline in first class. And remember the dress codes? As late as the 1980s they were very strict. I remember, as a 7th grader, having to wear a tie!

Good for you

tell that to the ZED travellers that were stuck in DXB since Y class was full and J/C/F were wide open, but EK refused to upgrade them.

I take it you got your luck in BKK

and an ID75 is worthless and very expensive, I never would fly on an ID75 and very glad I have no agreements that go that low to the ID75 except SQ, but I have better options getting places than with SQ anyway.

I had an upgrade-if-available ID75 ticket, and was careful to pick a flight that I knew had open seats up front. If it was questionable, I would not have tried it. I had a lot of flexibility. Not everybody does, I know.

Emirates are a fine airline in some respects, but have a terrible reputation for leaving staff behind when seats are available on the aircraft.

I'm glad my airline does all it can to get as many staff as possible on their way, whichever airline they are employed by.

Nice to see some people get ZED L and upgrade tickets ... I guess it depends on your function in the company/agreements your company has made .. I can tell you I don't have access to ZED L, just ZH or ZM and a rather stingy ID75 with Delta ... it's nice to see some staff able to standby for premium cabins, my concessions don't allow that!
