Stand-by Pass On Continental?

Sat Sep 11, 2010 8:21 pm

Hi everyone..

years ago a few US-airlines offered a Stand-by pass for $399.- a month. I enjoyed it several times on Delta.

Yesterday at a party a guy told me , that he was traveling on a stand-by pass with Continental Airlines years ago.

I have never heard that CO ever offered such a thing. Does anybody knows whether CO ever offered a stand-bye pass?



thanx: DALelite

A couple of US airlines offered such a pass to visitors living in foreign countries. Then they went to a pass whose cost is based on how many flights you take. I lived overseas for years and they were an incredibly good deal. In 1986 NW offered a 60-day unlimited pass for confirmed travel for about $400. They even extended it more than once for me. By about 1990 it had switched to 30 or 60 days of unlimited travel on a standby basis. DL offered a similar standby pass. Still about +-$400 for 30 days of standby travel.

I knew a couple that bought some kind of annual pass from Continental; they purchased it in the late 90's. They were both retirees. It gave them unlimited travel in FC. To the best of my knowledge, the program no longer exists.

So then CO did have a stand-bye pass. I was not aware of that. Never saw any ads or so.
