Are parents of active pilots eligible to join this program?

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.

if you have a round trip zed fare tkt.and us miss a flight,can you standby for the next flight to the same destination?

Hi Ray,

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

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?


avatar Kerwin McKenzie April 17, 2016 at 7:51 pm

Hi Paul,

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

Thank you.
