Question For US/HP Emps On NON-REV

Wed Feb 01, 2006 6:34 am

In the past I was aware that HP emps could opt to fly standby at no -charge on NW due to some partial ownership. but since HP bought US, would US emps get the same benefit to non-rev on NW at no charge like HP in the past?

I haven't heard anything on the US side, the pass policy is still being worked out thought and little bits are coming out at a time.

Just hope US/HP dont start losing agreements due to its growing LCC image. normally LCCs cant hold on to agreements like Legacy carriers can, even if interlining is done.

Partial ownership, now I honestly have never heard that one before.

Don't let NW employees know that HP employees has this privilege. NW employees don't even get it on their own airline. Annual fees and service charges are the name of the game.

Officially, HP has a Zed (medium) agreement with NW. I don't think it's yet been communicated to employees if/how the OA agreements will change with the merger.

I don't know about all LCC's, but Southwest offers non-rev (service charge) agreements to employees of almost any airline out there.
Tired of airline bankruptcies....EA/PA/TW and finally DL.

I have actually done more than the actual employees of some airlines, it sometimes makes me feel guilty getting more freebies than them on their own carrier


Are you telling me NW people cannot go at no charge domestically in Y class?

I am noticing some bad bennies with even AA, wide open J class and many AA crew members were in Y class trans-pacific (mut have been some big service charge to touch J/F) , cause you know nobody can match DL where its no charge up front.

Must have been some old station agreement at LAS for HP then, not systemwide

Very true!

Even DLC carriers have the previledge to travel on DL all over the world for FREE! In J/F or in Y!!!!! Whereas most other carriers do charge their connection carriers...such as UA, it would cost me about $300 to go from DEN to FRA in F on UA, whereas on DL from SLC....it costs me $0!!!!!!!

Sounds like a station agreement.
Here at PDX our station agreements are mainly with the other LCC type airlines here. We fly free on Southwest and Frontier, as well as Alaska/Horizon and Skywest. We also have much more restricted agreements with Delta and Continental but these are worthless to most employees.

Thats generally the case. Station agreements are great if you work the ramp or CS. Inflight and Flight we do not get the spoils of the station agreement. SO we have to purchase ID90/95's or ZED's.
