BA Staff Travel Load Request ORD-LHR

Fri Aug 28, 2009 2:29 pm

Hello,

Can anyone let me know how BA looks for ORD-LHR, BA 294 and 296 on Aug 31? Looks tight in the GDS. I have a zed in Y. Will they upgrade to J if no other seat are available?

Thanks!

The nonrev site shows available seats as:
BA296:
WT 3
WTP 2
CLUB 2
FIRST 9+

BA294:
WT 7
WTP 1
CLUB 4

BA298:
WT 9+
WTP 3
CLUB 9+
FIRST 9+

0 standbys listed on all flights. Don't know about the upgrades as I took them LHR-ORD with a Y zed and we got Y seats. All the staff on board were saying how lucky we were to get on as it was overbooked. WT (Y) had at least 15-20 open seats (on the 747) so I'm not sure what their definition of overbooked is.

You can check the approximate loads yourself the same way I did. If you haven't already been provided the website to do so, send me an email from the link in my profile and I'll send it to you.

We non-rev'd on BA last week, and were told we should have pre listed online. What is the link?

You can also check www.seatcounter.com to get an idea. I've always found that as long as the flight is still SELLING seats, you should be good to go. Now obviously this depends on how many staff are listed but ORD LHR you shouldn't have any problem.

I've gotten on flights where the checkin agents have told me that I'm wasting my time and that I should go home....... I don't listen to them anymore, they're often negative and don't really care about you.

Unless it's zeroed out, GO FOR IT, you never know until boarding sometimes.

OK well I've looked at the BA staff travel system and can give you the following....

BA294
Y7 W1 J4 +4 BA staff on standby, all confirmed J

BA296
Y3 W1 J3 F13 +0 BA staff on standby.

On ORD-LHR back in April I was upgraded from Y to W to J at check in and then onboard on staff travel so good luck (plus upgraded to J on the outbound LHR-ORD).

Not only did I get on, being non-rev number 11, but 8 people below me got seats.
