Getting Started With Passrider.com
I’m Kerwin McKenzie, founder of Passrider.com. If you’re new to airline employee standby travel or this site, this page is for you! It contains the information you need to get started and well on your way to flying standby successfully. Although some may not think so, its an art; a learned art. Here’s a look around the site.
If you are unfamiliar with what standby travel means for an airline employee/staff, here’s a definition. In short, you get a seat when its not taken by a paid passenger and its your turn on the list. The rules vary by airline so its best that you contact your individual airlines if you have specific questions as to which airlines you can use. Typically, some airlines will allow the employee to give tickets to others. These tickets are never to be sold.
This is perhaps the part of the site you will use the most. The idea is to give you a list of flights that are scheduled to fly between two cities. You can find the widget on the right side of each page as well as on the Advanced Search page. Feel free to use either one. If you are on a mobile device and are having issues, try http://mobile.passrider.com.
This is a frequently asked question so I’ve actually created a video to address this. Here you go:
