Default My Idtravel site

Anyone know who to call at Delta or ALPA about getting Delta relisted as an available airline on the Myidtravel site so we can book seats on our sister airlines? Tried to look at site today and Delta doesn't show as one of the 100's of global airlines in the pull down menu.

Thanks

Worked for me just now, what are you trying to do? Jumpseat or buy a ZED fare?

Use that link. I'm guessing you only entered myidtravel.com and that's what happens when you do that.

Imagine your trying to get out of Miami hours ahead of a Hurricane and your experiencing the same issue with confusing websites? I can because it just happened to me and my FO. American left us at the gate with empty seats. Captain and two agents were useless.

Yet, American pilots and FA's can simply walk up to our gates and get the JS by just showing their ID. No confusing 12-step online process for them.

Sound like a reciprocal agreement? Not exactly.

Default Initial login to myidtravel

I am a relatively new hire trying to get access to myidtravel. When I go to the regular link there is a button for registration but it requires you to put in your Air Line but Delta is not there. When I go to the above link where Delta is there it does not have a link to register. So how do I sign up for this?? Thanks.

Jumpseat Listing Other Airlines using myIDTravel

Introduction
This Jumpseat Alert provides procedural guidance only and is meant to help clarify how to list for the jumpseat on other airlines that use myIDTravel as a third-party vendor. It does not delve into the political aspect of such listing requirements, of which the committee is well aware. Your feedback regarding this issue is welcomed and given due consideration by the committee but should also be directed to your local council representatives as it relates to the political landscape created by other airlines requiring such advanced jumpseat listings.

Background
American, Southwest, jetBlue, Virgin America, and a few other carriers, including some Canadian airlines, highly encourage or even require an advance listing for jumpseats using myIDTravel, a third-party vendor. Historically, myIDTravel was a listing site used mainly for non-revenue or discount/ZED travel among airlines that participate in such programs. In recent years, however, a separate version of myIDTravel was developed for some airlines, which enabled the creation of advanced listings for other airline pilots and flight attendants who utilize jumpseat travel for their commuting or personal travel needs. Note that the TSA only permits pilots to occupy cockpit jumpseats using CASS verification. Flight attendants are limited to cabin seating only.

The thought process behind the separate myIDTravel jumpseat listing site stems from the increasing demand imposed on gate agent personnel and was seen as a way to minimize gate agent time and interaction with individuals requesting the jumpseat. In theory, an advance listing minimizes the computer input required to manually enter a person into the system at the gate. The onus of such input has shifted from the airlines mentioned above (and possibly more airlines in the future) to the individual requesting jumpseat travel.

The pilot now creates his/her own listing for a desired flight prior to approaching the airline agent with a jumpseat request. With CASS approval, pilots are eligible for the cockpit jumpseat domestically if needed when holding a “Pilot Commuting” listing, but may be offered a cabin seat if/when available. Note: the term “Pilot Commuting” when listing via myIDTravel applies for both commuting and personal travel.

Important: A specific “generic” link of myIDTravel must be used to access the appropriate login page, which allows the “Commuter Travel” listing feature to be active for jumpseat listings. There are some non-generic login pages for myIDTravel that look quite similar, but are incorrect for this purpose. This has been a major source of confusion. The specific “generic” link shown below will lead to the correct login page needed to ensure access to the “Commuter Travel” listing feature when using the provided login credentials.

Use the following link for the specific generic login page of myIDTravel for “Commuter Travel” jumpseat listings: https://www.myidtravel.com/myidtravel/start?action=login-generic. You must see the word “generic” at the end of the extension in the address.

The following “shortcut” may also be used: myidtravel.com/myidlisting. This shortcut will automatically redirect to the correct generic link above and the appropriate myIDTravel login page.


How to List for Jumpseat on myIDTravel
(print and retain this page for easy reference)

1. Visit the listing site using this specific link
· Always ensure you're on the "Commuter Travel" channel of the site, also known as the “generic” channel
· myIDTravel.com/myidlisting (no 'www' required) will also redirect to the proper channel - we encourage pilots to bookmark this link
a. Note: This is the full, correct website: https://www.myidtravel.com/myidtravel/start?action=login-generic
b. Note: If you do not see the word “generic” at the end of the URL, you are not on the correct version of the website

2. Enter the login info:
· Employing Airline: Delta Air Lines
a. Note: If you do not see Delta Air Lines as a selection, you're not on the proper channel of myIDTravel – look for the word “generic” at the end of the URL
· User: DLstaff (Case sensitive)
· Password: 006

3. Once logged in, confirm the privacy statement and click "next."

4. Now you are on the home screen, Welcome To myIDTravel Page - Click “Commuter Travel” from the menu line.

5. myIDTravel Commuter Travel Page - Enter the following info, then click “next”:
· Employee Last name, First name, Middle name, Salutation (Mr or Ms)
· Employee Staff ID (6-digit Delta employee #)
· Employee Date of employment (dd.mm.yyyy format using periods)
· Confirm you are an active staff member (active employee) - Check the box
· Select desired Airline and enter Itinerary information: Travel Status - Select “Pilot Commuting” Note: Time and class are not applicable and do not need to be selected.
a. Note: This is a European vendor so use the dd.mm.yy date format shown for date of employ and, later in the process, for birthdate
b. Note: You also must include periods when entering dates (i.e. May 2, 1996 would be entered as 02.05.1996)

6. Flight Schedule Display Page - Select desired flight(s) by clicking associated radio button, then click “next.”
· Note: If no radio button exists, that flight(s) is not selectable.
· Select one way or return (round trip), the airline (SWA, AA, JB, Virgin America, etc.) and trip information, choose “pilot commuter,” then click “next.”
· Make sure to check the often-missed box confirming you at an active staff member – it will remind you if you forget.
· You can make listings (as many as needed) up to 30 days in advance!

7. Shopping Basket Page - Shows your selected flight(s). Click “next.”

8. Fare Information Page - Will show $0.00 USD for domestic flights. Click “next.”

9. APIS/Secure Flight Page - Enter birthdate (dd.mm.yyyy format). You may check the box indicating “Skip this section,” but birthdate is still required. Click “next.”

10. Hazardous Materials Page - Hazardous Materials advisory. Click “next.”

11. Contact Information Page - Only one phone number is needed, but you must enter your email two times. Click “next.”

12. Confirmation Page - You are now listed! Print the confirmation page or note the Booking Reference (also known as a PNR or Record Locator) and present to the gate agent if requested. Your itinerary and booking reference will be emailed to the address you provide.


Important Items to Note
Ensure that “generic” is the last word in the link address when login page loads.
If Delta Airlines does not appear as a selection under the ‘Employing Airline’ drop-down list, or the system responds with an error, check the address as you are likely not on the specific “generic” login page. Bookmark the generic link or type in the shortcut shown above to ensure you are on the proper login page.
Do not access myIDTravel from DeltaNet, or a search engine - Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc., as this will load the incorrect non-revenue/discount/ZED version, which will not work for the purpose of “Commuter Travel” jumpseat listings.
Use the “next” and “back” buttons on the site pages, not the browser’s navigation buttons/arrows, when paging back and forth during the listing process.
The myIDTravel site is prone to glitches. If you find you have followed all the listing steps correctly and are still having difficulty obtaining a confirmation, go back to the Commuter Travel page using the “back” button on the pages (not the browser’s back button), reenter the listing information, then continue forward with the process again. This should solve the problem.
Most airlines will allow you to apply or roll a listing to a subsequent or earlier flight between the same city pair on the same day if needed or desired.

Conclusion
We understand the hassle of jumping through this extra hoop in order to jumpseat on these airlines. Our aim is to educate and facilitate the use of this procedure; it is new to many and can be confusing and frustrating. Practice listings are encouraged to help familiarize you with this procedure. There is a cancellation feature; however, it is not necessary to cancel listings as they will drop out of the system at departure time if not activated.

We are confident that you will become proficient with this procedure with a little practice. Depending on which browser used and your settings, you may be able to have your personal listing and contact information auto fill in the appropriate fields when making a listing. As always, please contact the Jumpseat Committee if you need assistance. [email protected]

Respectfully,

Your Delta MEC Jumpseat and Employee Travel Committee

You don't apply for your own. We all use the same generic Delta login.
