I do work for ASA... just looking at the flights and i see people S3B with retiree/other dates dated in 2004 that are listed ahead of people with 2000 hire dates but are S3c. But when i have noticed that when i print my seat request card it says S3C. is that a mistake or does the computer automatically make me S3 on ASA flights
Did you list for a Delta flight followed by an ASA flight, or vice versa? If so, the computer will do the magic for you to make you S3 on ASA and S3C on Delta.
If you just listed on an ASA flight, you should be S3. If you're not, run down to ops and check travelnet to see where you stand on the airport standby list.
Travelnet for listing is worthless -- it doesn't separate out by S3, S3C, etc. It's one thing that I hope they would have fixed in the new update but didn't (although at least they account for retired folks now). It's all but impossible to tell where you stand until the day of travel where everybody checks in.
