AWA will be CASS operational on Tuesday, August 16.

Please remember to bring a passport if you wish to ride our FLIGHTDECK jumpseat. Your airline must be CASS approved.

All of our Airbus 319/320's have 2 (two) cockpit jumpseats, most of the 737's have two, and most of the 757's have two seats.

The gate agent will print a cass authorization from the printer. Bring it to the Captain with your passport, medical, license, and company ID.

Happy Jumpseating!!!

We still take unlimited cabin jumpseats on all our flights.

Where did you here this? I just looked at the MEC website and as of August 12 they still say the end of August for CASS.

Came out in email from J.B. this morning
Is there an order of priority for the jumpseat now ie. first cactus guys then offline guys?

Does it take any time to get into the data base for other airlines - could I walk up to southwest on the 17th and ride up front?

Of course it will be cactus guys first on a cactus airplane. What airline doesn't take thier own guys first??

Although...I did jumseat on us (AWA) a few years back and the gate agent put a Southwest guy on in front of me. Believe me, she won't make that mistake again.

Caution, folks. Expect there to be plenty of teething problems. For OAL commuters don't count on the cockpit JS until we've seen the system work.

For all CASS pilots just a reminder: there's a computer paper trail. Y'all be careful out there.

Not sure about Delta...I don't think they have it up and running yet.


Southwest is CASS too.

Wrong. Delta has CASS up and running. It's been up for a couple of weeks now.

got a question...

Is it common at all for the Captain to permit an upgrade from coach to 1st class for a fellow aviator. I'm talking about a CFI or commerical pilot other than a 121 guy.

Yes, CASS is up and running. Please be patient if you ask for the cockpit jumpseat and the gate agent tells you that you can't sit in the cockpit. Ask for a supervisor and mention that a customer service instruction sheet was sent out to all CSR's and that it is a few quick entries. They can also call the help desk.

If you are Pinnacle please make sure that you use 9E as your code and not NW. Gate agents have been getting this wrong and a Pinnacle guy was denied a seat that he should have had.

Thanks for everyone's patience through the learning curve.
