DND Cards - Do They Still Exist?

Sun Jul 21, 2013 7:09 pm

Back in 1970 had a girlfriend who had a DND (do not decline) card - do they still exist?

It meant what it said - do not decline, didn't matter if the flight was full (& forget Y)

Basically she could travel first class on the issuing airline and any partner airlines without any charge whatsoever to wherever she choose, as long as it was on the network of her issuing airline (north american) or their partners

I know Freddie Laker's DND card was cancelled 3 months after Laker went down - what is the position today?

I don't believe so. I'm pretty sure they have been replaced by "positive space" tickets. When I was a FA my company routinely overbooked flights and sometimes had to bump up to 6 people to get our crew onboard for a deadhead somewhere. Who knows, maybe in some third world countries they still exist.

Back in my FlyerTalk days I ginned up a set for folks on pmUA to use (they were color coded to the class of service and had a check box whether to be woken for a meal or not).
