If you don't have an agreement, don't try it. If you get caught, it is a lot more serious than you think. Best case scenario and the most likely, the agent turns you away without pressing the issue. When the agent can't pull up your airline code, it's a red flag. The absolute worse case scenario is you get on the flight, then someone finds out you should not be on the plane. You can be arrested for trespassing and a security breach at that point.
Your above post is admitting that pilots from your company have stolen seats. If you want jumpseat privileges, work for a company that has jumpseat privileges. Just because you are a pilot does not entitle you to catch free rides on whoever you feel like.
For those of you that don't know, Ameriflight is a 135 outfit.
