View Full Version : Standby Privileges

So I've looked through recent forums, but want to get this as clear as possible.

How does the standby privileges work at Republic Airlines. For example, would you get the lowest priority on any major carrier (DL, American, United)?

What airline has the best standby privilege opportunity for people at Republic Airlines?

Is first class even ever expected or is it a rare gift when flying standby?

We have privileges on all three airlines.

We take first priority - even over mainline employees - on our own metal. This is fairly standard in the regional industry.

Other than that we share priority with other regional airlines with some exceptions. AA wholly owned carriers get on before we do on an AA flight, for example.

First class is a rare blessing for domestic flying. People seem to get it fairly often on international travel. I've not done international travel yet so can't comment there.

This is correct, except for Delta standby flying, where we do not have the highest priority, even on our own metal. We do, of course, have priority for our own metalís jumpseat though.

Iíve lost count of how many times Iíve been upgraded internationally to business/first. Easily over 10 times, all three legacies.

Do our parents / spouse fly for free on AA, Delta or United or do they have to pay a segment fee?

Can you list for premium cabins on the legacies when flying international as you can if you work for the 3 AA WO's?

30 days. You can jumpseat as soon as you get your badge but that won't be during indoc.

Do you or your eligibles pay anything for flying? I have seen some fees or taxes. I know anyone has to pay international tax but I'm looking for the 100%, what does it cost if anything please

Depends who’s flying and what airline they are flying on. You get the benefit guide once given a class date

Could someone give an example?
Let's say. I want to fly DFW-NRT, in First with AA. Can I list for that?

Yes you can list for any cabin class. We get lower priority than AA mainline/WO employees though.

Ok that's great. And is it the same for all 3 legacies?
