Do you have to be in the CASS system to jumpseat on NWA ?

enough
To occupy the cockpit jumpseat you would need to be in CASS however to simply ride int he back all you need is the usual stuff and an open seat....I just rode them last week and they always treat me well as an offline guy.

Twotter76 is correct !

CASS guys / gals can sit in the cockpit.

Other off-line guys / gals need a seat in the back.

All are welcome; (your company must be on the approved list, however).

The folks at NWA have been fantastic ! Thanks for taking me home to the Northwoods of WI. I sincerly appreciate the ride home.

Cass would be nice... I understand ATA extended the trial program into August now..?

The agents in ATL have been more than helpful and accomodating. Real pros. And I never want to forget the respectful howdy to the Lead FA. Some of them ol gray hair babes are pretty darn nice .. !!

Much nicer than some our 20 something babes...... LOL....

Like most airlines out there the NWA pilot group have been great with their jumpseats. CASS was down for a couple of hours last month and the gate agent was not going to get me on (she was working by herself on a very busy day). A non-rev NWA pilot (I assume he was a non-rev) saw what was happening, on his way down told the Captain what was going on upstairs. He came up and politely asked the gate agent if she had a spare second to hand him a jumpseat slip so he could sign it there for her. 5 minutes later I was in a first class seat back to DTW. Great guys. Thank you.

I always have great experiences jumpseating on NW but did see something that suprised me a few weeks back. I was going JFK-DTW and was asked by the agent if I was Jet Blue (I'm not). I said "no" and she said that I was lucky because the captain told her he would not allow any JBL jumpseaters because they were the reason NW was having so much trouble (financial I presume).


Thanks for the ride...I always appreciate it.

Paycut
Be listed (by the agent) at least 90 minutes prior for the international crew list.

I have had two NW captains tell me that they would not take me if I were a JetBlue pilot. The latest said it was because they are flying airbusses for such low wages.
I am furloughed US Airways now working for PSA. I told him I thought it was amusing because JetBlue pilots make more than US Airways pilots. (For the same equipment). His reply was "well US Airways won't be around very long anyway.)
In either case, his reasoning for denying JetBlue and not US Airways is faulty.

Having said that, I have used NW numerous times and have never had a problem.
