Ameriflight is a CASS participant however, Ameriflight only has one reciprocal jump seat agreement. It is with Southwest Airlines.
A reciprocal jump seat agreement is what ensures that pilots have the ability to ride up front. Having an agreement is NOT, by any means, a GUARANTEE that you will be allowed on board, the agreement means that your two airlines agree to take each other's pilots if able.... so USUALLY, if you can be accommodated, you will be. Ameriflight currently only has on agreement in place w/ Southwest so the only airline that AMF pilots can jump seat on knowing that if they can be accommodated, they will be, is Southwest.
Some other airlines allow CASS participating airlines to non-rev on their flights in the passenger cabin only without a reciprocal jump seat agreement but the jump seat is at the captain's discretion and it can be pretty hit or miss. All depends upon the captain.
