Good morning! I am trying to jumpseat to GUM and I am having trouble figuring out how you all get there. What city do you typically depart from? Any ANC direct? Thanks in advance.

I would suggest trying the flightaware point to point search.

Here’s a link to our jumpseat finder. However, I can already tell you we do not fly to Guam from Anchorage.

I have a lot of experience jumpseating around the world on cargo and passenger carriers. Here's my advice:

You can take a cargo airline (Kalitta/Atlas/Western Global/UPS/FedEx) to Narita, Japan (NRT) and connect to one of the 3 daily non-stop United flights to GUA.

If you don't want to deal with the hassle of customs, I would get to HNL first on UPS or Alaska, then take the United B777 flight that leaves at 14:15 to GUA.

The alternative would be to jumpseat for free to any large eastern Asian airport on a cargo carrier and buy a ticket to Guam from there. Kalitta, Atlas, and Western Global allow off-line jumpseaters to jumpseat international. UPS and FedEx do not... hopefully YET.

My arsenal of resources for jumpseating are Staff Traveller phone app (for loads), Passrider.com, ALPA Jumpseat website (http://www.jumpseatinfo.org) (to find out how to list and obtain cargo schedules), and believe it or not, Wikipedia. Wikipedia has a section of "Airlines and Destinations" of every single airport that exists in the world that is constantly updated by the savvy crowd-sourced nerds of the internet. It'll tell you which passenger and cargo airline flies where non-stop from that airport.

Good luck!

Good post. ..you’re correct, no NRT for offline jumpseaters on fdx or ups.
