Flight Benefits: Pilots Vs. F/As

Sat Jul 07, 2007 6:56 am

How different if any are the flight benefits for a Pilot for an airline vs. an F/A? I read on the QF thread that F/As get to travel on J/C after 7 years. Is this the same as pilots. What about commuting to work?

Pilots can jumpseat of way more airlines than F/A's ever will, so it makes commuting much easier for a pilot.

One thing people need to remeber is that the Pilots need to sign and approve the jumpseater prior to him getting that seat in the flight deck. Also some pilots are very choosy and picky as to who is jumpseating. I guess if i was the pilot of the A/C i would feel very uncomfortable having someone look over my shoulders for the entire flight.
