Default Delta Travel Benefits

I was just wondering if Skywest, ASA and everyone else that flies for Delta get the same travel benefits on Delta as us over here at Comair?

I think it's mostly the same but at a lower priority on mainline. We don't pay mileage or leg fees for immediate family, but that may change in the near future (apparently DAL wants to start charging all non-revs like UAL).

ASA pilots would know for sure...they had what you have but were downgraded to the standard DCI bennies after they were sold.

No. Where you fly S-3 SKW flys S-3C. ASA still has the same benefits as Comair, but that is going to change in the very near future. Once Comair is sold (there is no doubt) and you are no longer owned by Delta your benefits will look like SKW. No more S-3 or S-2.

ASA still has the same Delta benefits we had when they owned us... for now. Unlimited domestic and int'l S3 on ASA, CMR and mainline, S3C on the other DCIs. 6 S2s per year. Parents get unlimited S3Bs for domestic, and "yield fare" (basically 1% of the fare) for int'l

PandaExpress. They're going to use Comair to taxi ingredients between stores in CVG and an EXTREMELY slow pace...

I do not work for Comair, but I do know how to read tea leaves. If Delta can not find a buyer they will spin off Comair and make it indepentant. Delta wants to have the biggest club (threat) to use on the regionals to keep costs down and it doesn't work as well if they own one.
