Questions About ZED Tickets

Mon Mar 15, 2004 9:19 am

Hi all. I just became eligible to buy ZED tickets. When travelling ZED, what kind of priority do you have over say, ID90? Is the ZED fully interchangeable? (i.e. I want EWR-CPH on SK, which is full. Can I use it EWR-FRA on LH?) I have heard they are. Is there a different fare for Biz and Coach?

Going from MSP (I can always get to the east coast using passes) to OSL, which airline should I choose, since the price is the same. Looking for on board comfort, chances of getting Biz, chances of getting on at all...

Thanks.

a) Your priority is determined by the transporting airline. It varies as per their internal policy.

b) The ZED agreement mandates intechangability across carriers over the same ticketed points (including co-terminals). So if you had EWR-FRA ticketed on CO and chose to do JFK-FRA on LH instead, it would be valid assuming that both CO/LH are ZED partners of your airline at the same ZED level. However, there is no obligation to accept a ZED issued over different points, even if the ZED fare is the same. That said, many airlines will accept the coupon anyway if the fare is comparable.

c) ZED travel is technically only for travel in Y class. However airlines can and do upgrade to premium cabins based on their internal policies. The normal ZED fare applies (no surcharge).

Just some additions to what B747-437B said. I would make sure with the specific airlines what their policies are. I know for a fact that UA will only take Zeds specific the route printed on the ticket. UA would not take a LAX-HNL ticket on a SFO-HNL flight even though they are the same price. Mexicana is pretty good. With them I had a zed fare from CUN-MIA and for $10 more they printed me a ticket from CUN-LAX. So it all depends on the airline. Happy travelling!!

While looking on gozed.com, AI popped up as an option for EWR-CPH. Can I actually fly AI on this route? Without going to India?

You can fly AI on EWR-CDG (daily 744), but you're on your own for CDG-CPH.
