Favorite/Least Fav Airline To Non-Rev

Thu Aug 17, 2006 10:11 am

Mine would be Delta because they will usually seat you in J/F class if seats are available and you are dress appropriately (i.e. no jeans, collared shirt etc)

Least..Southwest becuse you usaully get stuck with a C boarding priority

My least favorite is because my experience is that they're almost always full! I love flying with them, but have a heck ofa time getting on.
Tired of airline bankruptcies....EA/PA/TW and finally DL.

My favorite is KLM. Some of my best flights and non-rev experiences have been with them.


My least favorite is US. Just not a fan... Not too sure how they are now though.

favorite outside of my employer is frontier

least favorite is southwest as 90% of the time we are told at the checkin counter that the flight is full, only to find out there is at least 20 seats available after we get on.....on a side note....have always ug a wn employee if seats are available so im trying to get some good karma going for our phx-las flts in sept and oct Smile

It's gotta be Delta as the best. They will put you up front if space is available, you don't even have to ask.

Haven't non-revved on many other airlines. The only other airline would be United and they are just fine.
The proper term is "on final" not "on finals" bud...

Best is Delta for the reasons mentioned above.

I don't care for WN because of the boarding process, but they do have flights often which is not a bad thing.

That would be B6.

Until AA gets a reciprocal jumpseat agreement with them I don't want to deal with some of their employees attitude towards non-reciprocal airlines.

am i to assume B6 as "them"?????if not who are u refering to????if it is B6 then pay the $25 dollars and go non-rev....enjoy the service that i have enjoyed twice between jfk-den.....i would imagine that AA,UA crews would find it rather akward to have a B6 f/a sitting next to them on roll out but they dont seem to have a problem trying to get a j.s on others...... certain airlines(skywest that i know of) have agreements as long as there is a seat in the cabin!

I meet and talk to other airline non-revs on WN all the time. They love Southwest because they don't have to take that weekend trip to LAS in "business attire." Boarding group C is nothing to complain about when flying for free.

Finally someone with a little bit of perspective. Thank you N200WN!! Remember, nonreving is a privilege not a right! If you really want A, buy the $54 ticket from LAS-PHX.

I've only nonreved on NW and CO but both have been great. NW didn't upgrade me even though there were seats up front but the early morning flight from LGA-IND was booked to something like 30/1xx on a DC93. I had the entire exit row to myself, can't complain about that! CO's service is always great and I sat up front 3 times this summer. That tripled my previous first class experience!

Listen here!

I will gladly pay the $25 bucks to non-rev on B6! But it has not been in put in place for me to pay, until then I will not fly on them because some employees there have serious problems with us using them.

I don't blame them. I would charge $25 bucks too if the concerning airline did not reciprocate. But here is the reality, I am not the spokesman for AA, nor do I call the shots at AA and decide whether we get an agreement or not. And until then I will not non-rev on an airline that gives me the cold shoulder,gives me dirty looks, and treats me like a second class citizen.

Maybe some of you have not experienced the cold blue experience from some of their employees. But I have and I refuse to non-rev on them until AA gives it up, or B6 starts charging us. That way I know I have PAID MY WAY.

Agreed...CO is a great airline to non-rev on. WN has an excellent pass agreement with them that includes parents. Mine use them about four times per year on SAN-EWR. They are always treated well.

non-rev (non-revenue) in this case means free or reduced rate travel. As employees of airlines, we get to travel on our own airline or other airlines (depending on agreements) either free or at highly reduced rates. It is on a standby basis though, so if flight is full, you wait for the next one or try a different airline. Hope that helps, and thats not a dumb question!! As a teacher used to tell me. "The only stupid question is the one not asked".

To answer the question... I really don't have a worse or best airline. The one that gets me where I need to go is the best one at that time.

I never have seen my airline (nw) upgrade any off line non-rev's. However, DL used to always put me up front as long as there was a seat even UA put me up front every time I flew them I didn't have to ask.

Hey, looks like you forgot to name the airline. A lot of planes are full these days, so hard to guess which one.
