    Default Top stand-by destinations

    So I came across an interesting article in our newsletter that listed the top stand-by, non-rev, staff travel (call it what you want) destinations for our employees

    Longhaul
    JFK
    MIA
    LAX
    BKK
    SIN

    Shorthaul
    LHR
    VIE
    ZRH
    BCN
    AMS

    Wondering if you have a similar list or just rough guesses for your own airline and staff favorite or frequent destinations on own metal. And I'm not talking about stand-by black holes. Though the two may be one and the same

    We don't have a list that I've ever seen but my guesses would be: HNL, ANC, LAX, possibly PVR and SJD.

    The List ALWAYS starts with the 3 letter city code I am standing by for!
    Well I put it this way - "Why is it that on the flight I am standing by for - the whole darn world is too" ?
    Even if I buy a discount ticket that darn flight is also full (was the reason I bought the positive space) !
    Fullness is never appreciated when it messes with my travel plans - selfish - you darn right !

    People people go get your own standby flight !

    If I'm buying a ticket, I'd rather it be on a full flight where I'm glad I bought the ticket than an empty one where I could have stood by! I spent $440 on 2 round trip tickets DEN-MCO with an employee discount recently. While that wasn't too bad, the plane was wide open, with dozens of seats available by the time we took off. The peace of mind was great, and the fare wasn't *that* bad, but you can't beat free!
