I work for BA and recently called the US Airways Employee Travel 1-800 number to list myself on a flight later this month. The lady that answered the phone didn't ask me ANYTHING about what airline I work for, my staff #, NOTHING. I am just wondering how this works. I have never non-revved before. She gave me a confirmation number and I checked it on usairways.com and it seems like I'm listed on the flight.
My question is, do they check airline employee status at the airport prior to departure? They must, because this lady didn't ask me anything before she gave me a conf #. I tried to do the same thing at the airport and they told me I needed a US manager's approval because I am non-revving for duty travel. They didn't seem to need anything by calling the 1-800 #.
