I've read about people asking for/getting Delta Companion pass or Buddy pass and just wanted to know more about how these worked :
- Are these for just Family/Friends of Delta employees?
- Is it only for Standby travel?
- How long are they valid for?
- What are the restrictions?
- Is there still a cost involved (eg. taxes)?
- Can one fly on international flights?
- If flying from New York to Australia via LAX, if they confirm you on both legs or do you have then get another standby from LAX to Australia (that is do they leave you stranded or confirm you all the way)
- How far in advance can you get a standby confirmed flight?
- Can an employee give pass to anyone?
- What are the catches?
- Any other info?
