Anyone know the best way to jumpseat from LAX to DXB in about a week or two? I'm flexible with dates if I can't make flights. My airline is not CASS certified yet.

The only U.S. carriers that serve Dubai are the cargo ones. UPS, Fedex, Atlas, Kalitta, etc. No European or Middle Eastern carriers allow jumpseaters like they do in the States so unless you can get on the cargo boys you'll be out of luck. EK starts their second daily flight from JFK in a couple of days. It is pretty lightly booked so far, so you would definitely be able to get on standby with a ZED or ID90 type ticket.

Well, if Atlas goes they take 135/121...I would say you are set.

Wankel7 is correct, we'll take you if you're 121 or 135.

There is no service to DXB from LAX, but most of our flights go into DXB from Europe: AMS, FRA, GOT - Asia: PVG, HKG


Good luck!

Go Atlas

If you're waiting on Polar to get to DXB, you'll be waiting a while. DXB is not a normal stop for Polar, be we're there daily!:pimp:
