Thanks a lot
You are trading zed benefits for the ability to collect miles and points. These days, air fare isnít too bad and once you get status you will not think twice about non-reving for vacation. You still will have jumpseat privileges with all of the major carriers. This came in handy when I made a last minute decision to catch a earlier flight home and I had 10 minutes to make that decision.

To answer your question, I donít have the exact list. Itís not very longÖ

Ok thanks for the info and fair enough. We have relatives all over the world and non-rev for us has been a huge money saver, and even with kids we have been doing so for years.

Here is the link from your union website re ZED agreements (list is bottom right)

https://wp.iap2750.org/committees/dependent-travel/

Do you pax that much in Atlas to make it worth collecting a lot of miles and gaining status? Didn't think the Gateway travel program would get you enough miles to make it worth.

Thank you

Here is the list from our union website (see bottom right)

https://wp.iap2750.org/committees/dependent-travel/

We have been non-reving (even with kids) for years; mainly around Australasia and Europe and have been going alright.

Do you px at Atlas a lot on your roster to make it worth collecting miles or just through the Gateway arrangement?

Default 777 v 747

Hi all,

Iíve sent in an application, still waiting to hear back. Just wondering if anyone here has experience flying both the 777 and 747? I think the 767 / 747 have both been covered but wondering about practicalities and QOL on the 777?

Thanks all

Gateway gets you some miles but at least on the 747 thereíll be some international DHs and since itís business or better the miles add up. And about once or twice a year a positioning flight to or a return from Europe or Asia will get you to the higher levels of status.

ďThank you for expressing an interest in Atlas Air. We are a global leader in outsourced aviation providing cargo, charter, leasing and passenger operations Ė we move the world forward, bringing 30 years of expertise to support our customers.

The Company is an equal opportunity employer and considers applications from all qualified candidates. In compliance with federal law, all individuals who accept an offer of employment with the Company will be required to verify their eligibility to work in the United States prior to commencing employment. As part of your application, you indicated that you will need to obtain authorization to allow you to work as a pilot in the United States. This process will need to be completed before you can begin employment as a pilot with Atlas Air.

At this time we are currently experiencing long delays with USCIS (United States Citizen and Immigration Services) in processing Company-sponsored immigrant visa applications and current turnaround time can be up to 24 months. We are doing all we can to expedite this process for candidates.

Thank you again for your interest in joining our extraordinary team! We will be in touch with additional information regarding our interview and application process.Ē

New Hire with a 767 class date on 7/12. Going to be using the Gateway travel program out of ORD. I noticed in the CBA mileage, tolls, parking, etc. are not provided by the company. Since ORD is an Atlas base am I able to park over on that side of the airport where the 74 guys, who live in the base, park? If so is there a way to get a ride to the pax terminal or am I stuck with Uber?

TIA
