Anyone care to make a stab at explaining flight privileges for Compass employees?

Not just jumpseat privileges for the pilots and FAs but family passes/discounts, Zed travel, etc?

For those who’d like it, here’s a break down:

AA: First priority on own-metal, after AA&WO on other, travel companion, now upgrade eligibility and travel planner. $75 employee + $50 each dependent annual. Max yield fare is $30 for dependents.

DL: Same priority as DL/DGS on own metal or connection (EV & OO have own-metal priority), after DL/DGS/9E on mainline, ZED fares, upgrade eligibility, and Travel Net. $50 for everything annual. $150 intl service charge plus dependent Yield Fares.

They both include Parents, Partners, and Kids.

Note: Dependents traveling with you on DL do not get your priority, unlike mainline. Always nice to see a DL employee’s dependent get First on CP, while I’m stuck in the jumpseat.

Secret on AA: Sometimes by mistake, and to your advantage, they clear all AACs first, if it’s an AAC operated flight.

Here you go.

That last paragraph... Really? 99% of the time 8 have to remind them I'm aac and it's a Compass flight.

Yeah that last one is definitely not something to plan on. If you get it, it's a good day, but more often than not you'll be lucky if they clear you properly at all.

Truthfully I think the AA benefits are much better than DL,at least now with the Travel Planner. We have a fighting shot of getting on our own metal being top priority. As someone else mentioned,no such luxury on our DL birds
