Ha both bases have an IROP nearly every other week, if not every week some months. Summer, spring, fall, and winter...IROPs for all...

Can we talk about how SkyWest has the ability to add a “registered companion” to their Delta travel benefits and we do not? Who do I email to complain about that? I already tried the pass rider lady and she told me to go pound sand. If it is important to any of the rest of you I’d appreciate you making your voices heard as well. This is ridiculous.

Is this registered companion in addition to spouse/domestic partner or in place of? Are they free or flat rate/taxes per leg? I don’t know anything about it. The union is probably the correct contact to push for it, though.

If you're trying to add your gf to your pass travel add her as a domestic partner. Did it myself

If you're referring to your girlfriend/boyfriend/fiancé then just move in with them. To be honest I'm not gonna call the union to complain on the behalf of 1% of dudes that wants travel bennies for their main squeeze when the union has bigger fish to fry at the moment.

"Just move in with them" LOL. Also I'd venture a guess that more than 1% of the pilot group has a significant other that they'd like to have on their bennies and 9E does make it unnecessarily difficult to do so. Maybe hop off FlightSim X and get out into the world?

If you are not willing to commit to your partner enough to move in with them, then why should DL do so?

It is very simple at 9E to get your SO on the travel benefits program. Provided you actually have a SO.

I happen to know that HeyOneTaco doesn't play FlightSimX. The fact that you know about it and brought it up tells me you are very familiar with it. Is YOUR significant other on your travel benefits?
