Do You Work For An Airline?

Sat Feb 16, 2002 5:04 am

What is the 'ticket politics' of your airline :
- How long do you need to work to get cheap tickets ?
- Can you get tickets without the travel agency commission for friends or relatives ?
- ....... ?

Most of us fly for free. And our parents as well, along with a spouse or friend. Then we get buddy passes.

Last year I worked for a charter airline that flew A320s and 757s to Mexico and the Caribbean from MKE, ORD, STL, PHL, etc. Employees flew for free on our airline, but our families had to pay the $50-$80 tax. We also got 90% off on Northwest flights. Not as good a deal as on the majors, but prety nice nonetheless.

At AF, after 3 months, you get 25% of the full fare Y ticket on Air France flights, for yourself, spouse, partner, children and parents over 60 years old. After 6 months, you pay 10% of the full fare Y on AF flights, and "Zed" fares, which are fares based on mileage, (ex. 0-600 miles is $13.00), and applies to most major airlines. After 1 year, you get the 10% fare on just about all airlines, and you get 3 AF buddy passes, and 3 skysteam buddy passes, good for travel on DL, AM, OK, AZ and KE.

Asian Airlines aren't that good if you look for reduces fairs for your family. ok, my self its still ok but specail grey market prices are often cheaper than ID standby. most airlines give you also one FOC a year, firm basis. not that bad...
