Here is another question. When you airline out, do you get to use the crew line? What about when crew pass is set up? Will they put you in the CASS system to get through? Thx for all the responses, very helpful thread.

When we airline, we are passengers, just like the rest of those in the back of the plane. Some of our guys still think they're airline pilots and try to use the crew line. TSA at a few airports, (CMH & HPN) will often give them crap. I go through the regular line and have no problems at all. Occasionally, TSA will even wave me forward, as a professional courtesy. If you want to use the crew line, work for an airline.

We will probably never be in CASS, and I believe we only have one jumpseat agreement with CommutAir, which was left over from many years ago and they are still nice about it. We will not be a part of Crew Pass, and will be treated the same as you will be commuting or deadheading, I would assume. For now I just walk up to security and they tell me where to go, usually it is to the crew line (except CMH and HPN), usually standing in line is no big deal because you will normally have a minimum of 1 hour (1.5 and 2 hours for bigger airports) scheduled prior to any airline flight (also remember if you miss your flight due to security it is not your problem). For me airlining is the worst part of my job, it would be interesting if they did a poll on the negatives of working for a fractional, I bet airlining would be #1.

Airlining IS #1. A poll doesn't need to be taken.

What if the airline flight is delayed or canceled, or the airport is closed for the day due to extreme winter weather, for example?

Just call the flight manager. Then, it's up to the company to make alternate arrangements.

Not always true. The FMs may have you stand in the customer service line for that airline and have the airline rework you. I had this once on a canceled flight.

If this happens on you last day and they are unable to get you home by 14 hours of duty or 24:00 you earn a double whammy, two extended days of pay and on the 18day schedule, year two, it is $1000. So if you see a NJA pilot on your flight and you are pushing midnight you can probably work out a deal if you block in at 12:01am, hehe.

It's really no big deal....

You're on the company clock, so it's up to them to figure out what they want to do with you.

Last month I had a connecting flight on AA cancel on me at DFW -- company had me "hang-out" for a couple of hours to try to squeeze onto the next flight (which was oversold at the time) I didn't get on, so they put me up at the Westin for the night and we tried again in the morning.
