that is not true, you just have to keep your OMC form and make sure the gate agent lists you as a js

Heard about this. You can still jumpseat but cannot flow back into the cabin if there is space. Same as DL. Do you UAL Express guys have to pay the Delta fee as well or is it just us DCI's? Heard if we are going to have to pay the UAL fee? I'm afraid we are going to be paying 50 bucks a year on all the airlines we commute on.

The perks continue.

Yeah but UAL policy states (at least 2 years ago) that if there is any open cabin seats, than the jumpseat can not be occupied. seems like a rock and a hard place to me.

TSA policy too, I think. Plus, after the door closes, Captain's discretion, no? No rules are more useless than those that will be broken and cannot be enforced, except perhaps those rules that a higher power will overrule.

Two recent accidents may have been prevented if there was a jumpseater in the jumpseat and not in the back. Comair at LEX and Colgan at BUF may not have occurred if a jumpseater had spoken up. Again, TSA policy is not in the best interest of aviation safety.

Well said - another set of eyes can be very valuable when the poo hits the fan

I thought there was a JSer on Colgan...was he in the cabin?

Another way the pilots are supporting the companies because the airlines refuse to increase ticket prices....so let's make the pilots and FA's pay for it!
ALPA should be all over this. Instead, they're golfing.
