I had heard a few weeks back that UAL was going unlimited for the jumpseat. Can anyone confirm or deny this? I think that sept 28 was supposed to be the day (2 days ago) Thanks!
Where did you find that tidbit? You can FLY the plane within 8 hours.In fact you can't drink 12 hours prior to the request.
Common sense and the interest of protecting the jumpseat for all of us...shagadelic said:Where did you find that tidbit? You can FLY the plane within 8 hours.
You should request the jumpseat (not just assume and take it), you may not drink while jumpseating, and you may not show up under the influence of alcohol when trying to jumpseat. That's the way I understand it.
Maybe at SWA... but not in the Legacy World.You can FLY the plane within 8 hours.
Jumpseated on UAL yesterday. I heard about the not having to check in with the captain from my jumpseat coordinator (thanks steve), but that went against everything I was taught so I went up and asked for permisson. The Captain said thanks for asking, but that we didn't have to do it anymore because if a flight had 30 jumpseaters, it would present quite a problem if all 30 people asked for a ride. He said that the only time you had to introduce yourself was if you were actually riding up front. I think that I will always ask unless a flight has a ton of jumpseaters, and then I will use common sense to the situation. Thanks UAL, you guys/gals are great!WatchYourElbows said:Question for all of you........as a commuter out of FLL, do you think they get a little tired of all the hello's? Seriously. I flew them the other day and there were 12 jumpseaters!!!! I wonder if we are disturbing them AND the boarding sometimes.
