I am assuming youre talking about the Delta switch over?

A lot of people here at XJ are royally pissed right now. 20+ year employees losing crazy amount of seniority with this new Delta pass crap.

Now the new hire Delta janitor’s buddies, and parents have more travel seniority over the 20 year CA/FA/manager/CSA/Mechanic/rampy/dispatcher...etc. It’s crazy

Things were A LOT better under the old NWA/Airlink program. Not this crap.

I'm happy I dont commute anymore...getting my S3C downgraded to an S4 - equivalent with a damned buddy pass rider just because I was riding a DCI carrier...

The new system sucks....

If you are having a tough time getting to work, try a pinnale flight, you will bump all their employees off so that gives you more priority.

Long live the Commuter Clause!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I agree I comute out of ORD, and can't wait to be home every night. 2 flights and go home. I have already used the clause at least twice a month this year so far, time to pick it up.

Commuter clause isn't pay protected. That's going to sting the checkbook a bit.

Isn't there a limit to how many times you can use the commuter clause?

The wife and I are supposed to be going on vacation next week. I'm hoping that we can actually get there and back. Could someone please enlighten me a bit on the priority codes (S3Cs or whatever?) I don't totally get it yet.

As an airlinker I'm used to being a 5W.

Good luck to all of you commuters!

A little convoluted but I'll give it a shot.

S1= emergency non rev. Death of family member, etc. Pain to get.
S2= limited number to use every year. Basically puts you at the front of all other non revs. At ASA we get three per and can only use them on ASA planes.
S3= standard travel for Delta employees on their planes just as it should be for your own planes.
S3C for use on mainline planes. S3CC is generally on other DCI planes.
S4 is buddy pass level.

Even better, I was denied a DAL jumpseat yesterday in favor of an AA pilot. I asked the gate agent to check, as I (CMR pilot) should've had priority.
She was polite, but clueless and really didn't care. Got the last seat using my last S2.

enough
When Delta puts those B.S. travel "benefits" on ASA, I'm denying EVERY Delta jumpseater.
