Not trying to post or get and load info, just curious why it appears to be such a big deal about how many people are on a particular aircraft? Is this a TSA thing?:rolleyes:

It sure seems like it, but it's not. There is another (free) forum where members are allowed to request and receive loads.

Now that I wrote that, this thread will probably be locked, and I will probably be banned. Bummer.

Nope, just people with POWER trips. They must be compensating for something, I wonder what that is?

www.seatcounter.com

Doesn't seem like the info is so secret... this website combined with the available seat maps on most airlines' websites gives almost the same info as posting load info.

Ignorance is bliss

Well... first off...

It's proprietary information.

An employee can not violate their company's policies and rules which prohibit disclosing information that could potentially be used by a competitor.

It's not a power trip or about someone trying to make your life difficult. People that have been in this industry for a while understand what is appropriate or not. Asking on a PUBLIC ACCESS FORUM about a company's sales (or in this case seat availability) is not appropriate.

Either call a friend that works for the airline, check their seat mapping option on their website or call their reservations.

Stop griping about people not breaking the rules to make your life easier.

Sorry, kinda missed where i was griping. Please settle down and back away from the keyboard. I'd hate to see your response if someone asked a really hard or threatening question. Nobody is asking anyone here to break the rules. And so you know, proprietary information is normally not availbale to the general public. So your argument that it's breaking the "airlines" rules is invalid. If they are this forums' rule, so be it. If the info was not posted on multiple websites then you would have a point.

By this logic...someone who posts something they overheard in the restroom at headquarters could be found guilty of insider trading...no more rumors here!

Well, most airlines make you agree to a disclosure as you sign on to your non-rev acct. Most do not read it, but it is wise not to post what you get. It is just something that can bite you.
