Continental Non-rev Question

Tue Sep 25, 2007 9:18 am

Will CO upgrade other airline non-rev employees on flights to/from Europe (similar to what DL does)?
If so is there a dress code (i.e no jeans etc.)?

Thanks

It's my understanding the only way to non-rev Int'l flights on CO is by flying WITH a CO employee. At least that's what my CO employee friend always tells me. Also, it's my understanding there is NO upgrades whatsoever and REGARDLESS of where you sit you should always dress nice, no jeans, no T-shirts, no tennis shoes. You non-rev, you represent the employee AND the airline.

Depends on the airline. i understand Delta has virtually eliminated a dress code for non-rev passengers. As long as it's clean and not offensive, it's OK.

I kind of agree with you though. It's a perk whose value should be recognized. While I don't agree that we are necessarily reprsenting our company (as we are as anonymous as the person sitting next to us), I do agree we should look well groomed and dressed.

Nope. Any airline that has an agreement with CO can use ZED fares. I did it last march EWR-LIS.
When in doubt, one B pump off

It depends on the station.

For B/F non-rev attire - No jeans, no denim. Collared shirt, nice trousers (khakis and the like). Nice shoes. Business casual, essentially. No shorts, tank tops, cut offs.

Either you're mistaken or your "friend" isn't telling you the truth.

Continental is a ZED carrier. Any participating (other ZED) airline employee, their spouse, domestic partner, dependent children and parents can non-rev on Continental.

ZED isn't absolutely free. It's based on mileage, but is very inexpensive. From Chicago, it's like $50 to the West Coast. $75 to/from Europe (plus all taxes..the UK is a killer on departure taxes).
