This question is for the more seasoned traveller, especially those who have a lot of experience flying standby.
I'm planning my first non-rev flight overseas to Paris on Northwest, to leave on Dec. 19. However I know it will be very busy flying that time of year and I'm just wondering if anyone has any advice about flying standby so close to christmas. Is it even a good Idea? or should i maybe try somwhere different, maybe a little closer to home, and go to Paris some other time?
Any advice would be much appreciated
