Generally they don't allow JS international. Most of the time you have to buy a ZED or ID90.

That's not quite accurate. International JS is allowed if there is an international jumpseat agreement in place between DL and your carrier. Check with your jumpseat coordinator. If there isn't an agreement, then you better plan on a ZED or ID90.

As to your first question. Call Delta and list as soon as you can (whether you are jumpseating or non-revving). International jumpseating is a little tricky into the States sometimes due to TSA and other regs.

Good luck. Loads looks OK (not good, but OK) for you Friday.

I jumpseat on Delta all the time between JFK and the motherland ( Dublin ). I have been treated really well. It probably helps when your company carries a tonne of Delta folk out of JFK and Boston.

For clarification, usually (read almost ALWAYS) you CAN'T use the jumpseat privilege and occupy an actual cockpit JS.

However, as has been stated. As long as your company has a reciprocal agreement with that company, you can use the JS privilege to occupy an open cabin seat. Of course there are exceptions, like UAL not allowing UAX pilots to use the JS privilege internationally. They want then to use their passes.

And of course, departure taxes may apply.

On some routes out of middle east, CAI/DBX came to mind, are often "load optimized", meaning they'll load up the belly before they let any non-rev boards, including off-line jumpseats, so please give yourself some options in the high seasons. Our travelnet sometimes tell us ahead of time which cities will be affected, but often time, we're the last to know, fwiw...

You guys are always a class act when I'm on my way to Asia. Bring some sugar for the grandmas working biz class, and they'll always try to hook you up with the good seats. Welcome aboard!
