The author of the thread is refering to National2, the LAS
based 757 one.
I did have two flights on them nonrev on a free pass as an employee of a competiotor. I flew LAX
making a connection at LAS
, it was about 5 or 6 years ago, here are my memories.
They used a DL
gate at LAX
, minumal National signage, they allowed non-revs to upgrade to First if avilable and it was on this leg for I think $15. Nice Big Leather seat and a length of flight approaite small snack. Had about a one hour conx in LAS
's modern and almost new D gates. a nice competive advantage for them. LAS
flight was almost full, nothing left in First and got a middle seat between two nice young ladies one of which I saw a few times as a result of meeting on the flight. Nice hot meal and pretty full service in coach and there was a movie shown on the overhead monitors. Both flights where on time or close and every employee I encounter was reasonalby friendly and proffessional. I was surprised that some of their own employees where able to and wearing tank tops, shorts and sneakers while non-reving. For those of you who are or have been airline employees I am sure you can relate to my surprise at the lack of dress code while non-reving. All in all good memories, I would say they got an A from me.
