If you read my profile, you'll find out I'm a Customer Service Agent (Gate Agent specifically) for SkyWest Airlines/United Express. I've been working there for... almost 10 weeks now. I just filled out an application, and sent it in. The day after I put it in the mailbox (at 5:30pm at that), they called me and set up an appointment for an interview. After that, some testing (drug and otherwise), and then they called me back and said I was hired!
my job... I enjoy it so much, interacting with so many different people, and I've made so many friends at work, 10 weeks later I'm still on Cloud 9
Yes, United does let non-revenue passengers sit in International First Class. Although, International First Class is the only class that you actually incur charges for (done through payroll deduction). There's a base segment charge, and then a charge for every mile travelled. This is for international routes only, if you happen to get an International First Class aircraft while travelling domestically, you don't pay a red cent
There are also other requirements, which is the reason that most non-rev reports don't report on International First Class. For example:
- No non-rev (ie dependent) under the age of 18 is admitted to International First Class.
- Employee's parents (unless travelling with the employee) are not admitted either.
- It costs (non-revs don't really like to pay
That cuts down a lot of people who write United non-rev reports that can possibly write a report about International First Class. We'll hope for the best that I'll be able to get it when I go to London at the end of December, but I've got odds against me (BP8C priority and current-day seniority, United isn't very nice to their UAX employees... but that's OK we turn right around and screw them the same way), if not... Business is OK too
Head in the clouds... yet feet planted firmly on the ground.
