Good afternoon,

trying to look at flights to ANC. I looked on the jumpseat page, and it looks like there are currently direct flights to and from SDF. The flight doesn’t appear to run in August.

planning to leave ATL. Delta has 1 direct per day, just trying to plan ahead, and think about backups.... since mother D is doing a 60% cap.

thanks

Just hasn't been loaded yet by the company. There are probably 3 or 4 flights a night from SDF, one from RFD, one from ONT, and maybe something from JFK or EWR. In a week or so when or schedule bids/vto lines are all awarded they should appear

Not sure if you’re at brown but be aware our ANC flights are frequently overbooked and quite often the company will bump you at the very last minute. A large percentage of our ANC based pilots buy airline tickets to/from ANC.

Also, in the next few weeks the jumpseat availability to/from Anchorage might get even more unpredictable. Our 747 sim in ANC will be going down for MX for at least 3 months. The company will have to shuffle our instructors and students to/from SDF (and maybe MIA). They’ll probably use our company jumpseats even more than they already are as there are very few commercial flights the company may use.

You’ll probably make your flight but you need to have a backup, or two.. good luck to you.

You might want to check with Atlas/Polar, I think there’s daily ANC flights from CVG
