    Default DL nonrev question

    How does DL handle nonrevs on through flights?
    If I fly a flight from IND to SLC to SAN under the same flight number, meaning I am a through pax in SLC, how do they work out the seniority.

    Airlines I have worked for in the past let the through pax ride on, no matter the seniority and I was just wondering what DL did since this scenario may come up for me soon.

    Thanks!!!

    I'm pretty sure NW would treat the flights as separate, but I vaguely remember hearing that that was going to change after the merger. Not 100% sure, but if you don't hear anything else you should be able to lean in that direction.

    if the flight number is the same all the way thru and you are listed on the thru flight then in the connection point you will be above all the folks on the standby list to board at the connection point...example if you listed pbi-ord on dl1522 then in atl you would be above those folks - however if you listed the legs seperately as dl1522 pbi-atl and then dl1522 atl-ord you would fall on the list in atl as usual you have to becareful when making the listing to make sure it shows as one leg and not two seperate legs...

    Just make absolutely sure you list it as one flight and not individual segments. If it's the same flight # all the way through, you're all set.

    I guess it's tho you never left the AC--you still have a seat on both UNTIL those pesky revenue pax and HK's want it!!

    Or, how about this one: I was on an international thru flight a few months ago from MNL-DTW (same flight number) and got kicked from Business by a deadhead air crew member! He was complaining he "checked in 1 hour early, he didn't know what the problem was!" While the rest of my family flew up front, I had to move to the back. I asked the senior purser about "thru-flights" and they weren't sure of the policy. To beat it all, I was seated and the doors were getting ready to close before he came hustiling up there. So, was this legit or no? Even though he was deadhead, all that is required is a "seat"...AFAIK, the policy doesn't say it "has" to be business..correct me if I'm wrong or if I am unaware of something...

    according to Boss, INT deadhead crew is handled as PSUP (not so for domestic, tho)
