Can anyone explain how RAH's pass privileges work on the 3 mainline carriers you fly for? It seems like having the ability to travel on all 3 would be a great perk, depending on where you might be on the pecking order.

Also, is there a way for RAH employees to check mainline loads on all 3 of the mainline carriers systems?

Who can you add to your pass benefits? Does it have to be an immediate family member?

Keep in mind there’s two lists.
Jump seat which is in the cockpit and a seat in the back. Both have different priorities.

We have pass benefits on all three majors.

We take lower boarding priority than major airline employees and their respective wholly owned regionals. That being said, I've yet to have a travel plan disrupted by this. We just walk to the next carrier and get on.

If you've signed up for benefits with a major, you can check flight loads whenever you want.

You can put immediate family members on all of them. Delta is the best for immediate family because it only costs $50 per year for the whole family. Spouse/kids travel for free on domestic flights. Parents will pay a segment fee that's usually pretty cheap.

United allows you to also designate one person as an additional friend, who pays segment fees and for whom you are taxed imputed income on the Y fare when they fly. This is the only benefit on which you can put anyone you want.

Additionally, if you are not married, United allows 2 “friends,” total as unlimited passriders paying the segment fee ($25 per domestic economy leg, $50 per international economy leg, + taxes - upgrades are additional). American also allows one friend as well for a total of three passriders. The American fees are generally less than UA. Delta does not offer us a “friend,” regardless of your marital status.

Thanks for the clarification.
