Typically, yes. The rules re different by airline you wish to travel though, so ask your child to tell you which airlines their airline has a ZED agreement with for parents.

Hi Ray,

Thank you for your question.
Yes, as long as the agent rolls you over to the next flight.

Thanks.

Do you know if express Jet has decided what 2015 will look like for it’s pass riders. I don’t think it has even had open enrollment for 2015. Our status is only good till Feb. 1st.

Good question Nancy. I have no idea.
Maybe an email to the Pass office may suffice?

Can you purchase ZED guest passes for friends?

Hi Josh,

Thanks for your question.
This is a question for your airline’s Pass Bureau. Typically, only members who are registered in your profile are eligible for the ZED agreement.

Up till what age do the children of retired employees benefit from ZED tickets?

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the question.
I think it’s 26, but just verify with your Pass Bureau as it may be different.

Hi,

How do we classify who gets checked in first according to ZED? is it the fare basis or the zones??

Please advise.

Kind regards,
Sela

Hi Sela,

That’s a good question indeed. I’d say that this will vary by airline. I think that its usually by the relationship that each airline has with the host airline coupled with your time of check-in. So if its say a Star Alliance carrier then other Star Alliance airlines would be first and within that some sort of priority.

IIs a retired flight attendant eligible for a Zed fare on another airline ?

Hi Marilyn,

Thanks for your question.
I’d say that this depends on your airline. Give your Pass Bureau a call or an email for clarification on the OA Policies.
