Hi SWA friends. The myidtravel website that all of us offline commuters use to list for the flight deck jumpseat on you started charging us $6.88 to list. I assume it is a 3rd party website coding error but while the ALPA folks talk to the SWAPA folks i was wondering if anyone had heard anything. Always appreciative of the ride.

I hope that is a mistake. It should be.

It must be a myidtravel issue, because I tried it with AA as well as SWA and it's the same $6.88 charge.
Let us know if you hear anything from the union, I'll reach out to our local jumpseat committee as well to see what the issue is.

Thanks for the replies. I did just try other airlines including AA and the charges are only occuring with WN that i can replicate using our CCS APP anyway. Hopefully this can be resolved expeditiously. Almost certainly a coding issue.

Quick follow up, I'm a DL guy and just chatted with our Crew Assist folks as we call them nowadays. They confirmed the error and will be researching the issue tomorrow.

Reminds me growing up, my mom had a couple of ‘charge a plates’ with the department stores. My dad had a ‘gas station charge card’ for his gas station he used. On vacation, they would have Traveler’s Checks. Paid for the motel and restaurants with them.

Credit cards had not been invented, except Diner’s Club and American Express. They were not swanky enough to qualify for one of those fancy cards.

Boy am I old!

Not too long ago I worked as a fueler at the local airport (1995). We used carbon slips and the card slammer plane side. Each truck was equipped with them!
