Riding Jump Seat To/From US

Fri May 18, 2007 9:53 am

I know there's been some discussion on this already, but wondering if anyone knows whether its possible to jump seat on any foreign carrier to or from the US. I know pretty much prohibited by all carriers esp in US, but I've heard some European carriers still give captain discretion. I'm flying Austrian (OS) soon, wondering if I'd look foolish even asking. If it matters I have a private pilots license and US Government passport, I assume that plus $100 gets me a day pass to the lounge. Thanks.

You are right, this subject has been discussed many time before, and no there is no chance on riding in a jumpseat on any flight to or in the US unless you are a pilot for and airline that participates in the CASS system. Even then, you can usually only do that is there is no empty seat in the back.
