Yea I know about that problem ive dealt with it at CAL and lucky me it was an issue in my hometown. Has to do with the computers being to old and not being able to generate a picture.

YES!! All the two letter codes for airlines! Now I will be able to decode all of those posting that were titled with just the airline code. A mod should totally sticky this portion of the post!

jk

I agree with the "if the cpt is a commuter then he/she will try to accommodate" The only time I have not been able to make the j/s is when the weather is down so bad and so wide spread that they have an alternate that is pretty far. *shrugs* no big deal, that's what commuter clause is for!

Here's what I dont get. Why do some airlines accept a CASS member as having a reciprocal jumpseat agreement while others require you to be in CASS and have a recip agreement??????

Every airline operates their respective jumpseats the way their jumpseat committee, and or management wants. Example: American Airlines has both unlimited jumpseat agreements with carriers reciprocating unlimited, and limited with those that don't. Same with international agreements at AA. AA's management will not allow international agreements with carriers that don't fly internationally (exception SWA) regardless of CASS.

Others airlines ONLY accept CASS carriers to their list (i.e. FedEx). Here at SkyWest, we accept CASS and non CASS, but you HAVE to be on our reciprocal jumpseat list. It is just how different airlines operate their jumpseats.

Sorry to bring back the dead but I have a question. Vision Airlines (V2) is a CASS participant and we do have a reciprocal agreement with SkyWest. Vision does not have agreements with Delta or United at this time. Could I still jumpseat on all SkyWest flights?

I would guess yes... Otherwise, that agreement with skywest would be pretty useless...


So, vision, eh? What's the deal with those unmarked 767's they always have parked out in IAD?

So who would I contact at a particular airline to find out if mine has a reciprocal agreement with them? Or should my airline know everyone that has reciprocal with us?

You airline should have a list and provide it to you. It's usually in the FOM/GOM.

The nonrev phone for an airline would probably not have the list, but any pilot should.

Almost all domestic 121 operations are reciprocal, unless you just started up last week.

Just to also throw something in...
I was in SFO trying to go to RDD on skywest, and they could only take 27 people, and the gate agent said they had 18 bags. I was denied, due to weight. Is this normal? I know the emb120 is always restricted, but at sea level with cooler temps and long runways?

You should ask to speak with the crew in this situation. The agent is just getting a number from Ops with the limits and has no idea what it means. There are instances when the a/c is an aft galley config that adding a jumpseater, in the actual, allows you to take more payload due to the balancing effect on CG.


SKYW seems to have adopted this policy, along with many other airlines, that getting out on time trumps taking ALL the people that want to go to their destination. Getting out on time should be a goal, not an absolute. If we can take one more person, it is worth the delay. That is what we are in business for.
