Prioirty On NonRev?

Wed Nov 28, 2007 5:17 pm

I was just reading another non-rev related topic by Baguy. I would like to know how each airline works while placing NRSA pass holders onto the standby list.

At Delta, it is based on the employee seniority with the company. If one has 30 years of service then he or she would be placed toward the top of the list. Buddy Pass (also based on seniority of the employee) and other airlines employees would also be placed toward the bottom of the list.



I heard AA is first come first serve? Is that right ? What about other airlines in the world ???

Thanks for sharing !  Smile

Every airline has it's own priority system.

The general rule is: Must Ride Duty Travel goes first, then Duty travel S/A, Leisure travel S/A. Seniority generally only applies within each category. Employess of that airline have priority ahead of pass riders from other airlines, but there are usually some exceptions. Some airlines give duty-travel passes to interline partners, that then jump ahead of leisure pass riders.

When I worked at Air France a lifetime ago, we further subdivided each category by Outbound/Return legs. Nonrevs returning home had priority over nonrevs just starting their outbound journey.
It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

SWA is on a first come first serve basis with priority levels such as MR, emp/ or traveling with emp, dependents/retirees, buddy passes, other airline. (Hopefully it’s in the right order, I haven’t had to use the system, I usually clear my non-revs)

When I’ve non-rev on other airlines, I noticed that CSA don’t or can’t tell me how full the flight is booked??? I usually get the “we can’t tell you” or just “there’s room/no room” .. I dont know

When I get non-revs I tell them it’s booked by X amount of passenger and give them the possible scenarios

At AA, it is whoever checks in first. It kind of stinks and would make more sense to be based on seniority, but that's only IMHO.

At LH it is based on "dienstjahren", which means the longer you work for the company the higher your priority.
In FRA at each gate there are monitors on which all stand-by's are mentioned in order of priority.
I don't know how this is arranged at other airports, but at AMS you just have to check availability at the gate.
flown: F50,F70,CR1,CR2,CR9,E75,143,AR8,AR1,733,735,736,73G,738,753,744,77W,788,319,320,321,333,AB6.

Hahah, you got it right Bro, I had to use it quite often, freaking people love to oversell at STL!

But general gist of it first come first serve for SWA.

In Order of clearing as SAN88 got it right above.

a bit more colplicated than that...if youre a connecting passenger, you go ahead of all the local non-rev....it isnt uncommon to see a long line of local nonrevs on a sunday afternoon in ORD trying to get to DFW, only to be displaced by someone connecting GRB-ORD-DFW.

YX's non-rev system is more or less like PA110 describes ... it goes first by company business travel and then leisure travel ... and then within those categories it goes by seniority and which company you work for (Midwest employees are first on Midwest flights, Skyway first on Skyway flights, and the other is second accordingly). SkyWest is also in the nonrev structure, albeit tertiary to Midwest and Skyway employees.

They also made it even more complex to include whether or not you're traveling with relatives, or if your relatives/friends are traveling alone, etc.
I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.

Atl Delta, it's all seniority based. But it goes even rurther and depends on what priority to use. Like, i could be hired on Aug 20th 2007 and somone else hired 1980, if I use one of the VERY LIMITED high priority deesginators, I get higher on the list. It seems kind of screwy but if u read the rules like once it makes senc.

Ye, I think it's a rule for everybody too. But it has to be a thru flight sharing the same flight number over here. I guess it holds true for most airlines.

SWA priority list:
- HK (revenue confirmed)
- NRMR (non revenue must ride)
- SB (revenue standby, first listed first serve)
- NRPS (positive space, often business passes)
- NRSA (space available, by priority below and then first come first serve in each group)
..........Pri A - Emergency Travel
..........Pri B - Employee and/or dependent traveling with Employee
..........Pri C - Dependents
..........Pri D - Incentive buddy passes and retired Employees
..........Pri E - other airline Employees

I'm not certain about priorities D and E, but I think this is right.

I have never cleared a NRMR before a REVENUE Stand By when I worked at the Gates....

It was my thinking, yes the NRMR is a Must Ride, but that person did not pay for the seat, so the Revenue Stand By gets on first before NRMR....

Correct me if I did it wrong!

One addition to the DL system, if you travel standby on a through flight (same flight number), nobody with a higher seniority can bump you off the second segment during your intermediate stop...

But these NRMR are positioning crew and engineers. If you bump an NRMR engineer off the flight, the flight may not return because he has to sign it out at the other end. Bump the crew and there is no crew to bring it back.
We use a special class for these guys, although they are free tickets they are NEVER bumped in any circumstances. If the flight is oversold, they get on.

I didn't say BUMP...

I just said to let the revenue board before the non rev MR gets on. Because SWA does not have assigned seats, so we don't assign the non revs or even revenues a seat, we just let the revenue board before MR to get better choices of seats.

On our airline, positioning crews are NOT NRMR they are DH (Deadheaders), non revs dont just mean positioning crews, I am often a non rev must ride when I travel for company business, sometimes I am reverted to NRPS (non rev positive space).

You forgot a couple.

BP6B - Retired employee, spouse, dependents

BP9 - OAL employees


At NWA, Nonrev priority is done by pass class, and within the pass class it's done by seniority.

2- Company travel
3A- Incentive travel
3- Vacation travel
3R- Retired employee vacation
5- Standard travel
5R- Retired employee standard travel
5B- NWA Airlink employees

There are a whole bunch others....6, 6B, 8, 8B, 9, 10, and then OAL, IIRC. But, I have NO idea what any of those are!!

Yep. It may be a dirty act...BUT! one time I had everything planned for my vacation to STT, hotel booked, etc, but rules of the non-rev world doesn't always apply. Well anyway, about 6 days before my departure, I see that the flight goes to shit. First is oversold by 2, coach by about 18. HOLY HELL. So I start going nuts. But luckily for me, I was a stand-by guru at the time. STT during that part of the year was a thru flight operated as DCA-ATL-STT. The flight left DCA at like 8 something in the morning to get in Atlanta about 9:20 ish and then leave for Saint Thomas about an hour later. Well, lucky for me I had a friend in DCA so i flew up to D.C. the night before, then got on the flight the next morning and was the ONLY non-rev to get on the ATL-STT leg. When I got off the plane, i waited for the stand-by list to come up on the screen and low and behold, I was NUMBERO UNO! So anyone, something for you guys to think about in your future non-rev travels.

Yes and no, haha.

The class 5 pass, either the standard 5 or 5R, are the free/unlimited passes. The class 3 and 3R are limited to something like 4 segments per year....not a lot of them. So yes, a 3R will go ahead of a 5. However, a 3 will go ahead of a 3R, just as a 5 will always go ahead of a 5R (and 5B).

At United, retirees ALWAYS go ahead of current employees. It was part of the compensation for the termination of everyone's pension......better nonrev priority in retirement. Pretty good deal, eh??  Yeah sure

It's actually a really shitty policy, because retirees will travel higher in priority than even commuting employees. That's why pilots and FA's at UA absolutely HATE commuting, because both cabin and cockpit jumpseats are given away on a seniority basis, and retired employees will always travel ahead of them.

Doesn't make much sense to me. In theory, the retiree generally has more time than the employee so you would think they would be traveling more which is pretty unfair. Yes, at Delta retirees was below employees. What would scare me shitless was when I would check the stand-by list for a flight at home and see some guy with a hire date of 1970 (and brining along his whole family!) But i would thin kabout it and realize he/she is probably retired so I have no worries.

True, but you have to look at it from the guy who has 25 years flying with the company and some turd who doesn't give a crap about the company and has been there about 6 months (yes I was that turd at one point in my career with ASA). It doesn't come off as strange for me or other DL empolyees becasue that's how Delta has always done business. EVERYTHING is seniority based. But it wasn't really that hard to non-rev anyway. When I left with a little over 2 years, I was able to get on most flights with ease, and make first at that about 40% of the time.

Besides, if the trip is that important, you should have a back-up.

With record load factors it's getting harder than ever to non-rev to major destinations. By basing it on the time of booking, everyone has a fair shot at booking everyone has the same chance for the flight, including the 25 year guy. If you want to wait until the last minute, you shouldn't be able to knock off someone who has been booked for 3 months. Then again, I've only been in the industry a few years and feel badly when anyone is left behind. Eventually I'll probably develop that "screw everyone else" attitude that seems so prevalent in our industry.

If the seat sells, I couldn't agree more. My issue is with those 20+ year people waiting until the last minute to bump people. It happens so often with certain people you would think they enjoy doing it. I've been fairly lucky over the last few years. I've had to wait an extra couple hours once or twice and did a last minute change through another city but never got completely stranded.

Well it also shows more respect and responsibility in booking and checking in earlier.

Yes, this also is usefull for interline agreements especially with ID/ZED fares. you shave off a huge price difference by making a direct flight non-stop (one coupon) such as when I wanted to go to BKK from the US other than Thai and not worry about getting bumped in NRT. I would search for NW/UA flight that went all the way to BKK from US and find the orginating city, which was SFO for flight 28 for NW to BKK, so I could bypass standby in NRT and be cleared all the way through in SFO at the gate. i would get both boarding passes in SFO/LAX even the plane changes, but flight is same number Big grin

I even did a silly one. I wanted to go to BKK from Washington, and I found a UA flight that actually did continue from DC to BKK, it was IAD-LAX-NRT-BKK with 2 plane changes, but flight number remained same and best part was I could use just 1 coupon. and in addition I did it backwards  Smile BKK-IAD-BKK so I would pay much lower taxes and also the fare quote for those originating in BKK was even lower Big grin yippee It was like 160 roundtrip. with 3 seperate flights each way. oh the return actually went through SFO though as well.

Quoting Transpac787 (Reply 19):
At NWA, Nonrev priority is done by pass class, and within the pass class it's done by seniority.

2- Company travel
3A- Incentive travel
3- Vacation travel
3R- Retired employee vacation
5- Standard travel
5R- Retired employee standard travel
5B- NWA Airlink employees

There are a whole bunch others....6, 6B, 8, 8B, 9, 10, and then OAL, IIRC. But, I have NO idea what any of those are!!

6P- Parents
9- Buddy passes

It's important to note that non-union employees (Management/Salaried) always travel at a priority 3.
