Jumpseat.

Post by flyinhigh »

Hi,

I see jumpseaters now have to pay. Does this mean that there will be more than one jumpseater at a time?

I believe that's what the plan is but we haven't heard any details yet.

UPDATE: Just announced, multiple jump seaters is confirmed.

(But we finally lost the AIF battle, it seems.)

AC just got Porter back for JS. Does that mean Porter can jump on AC? Is the petty fight over?

AC can jump on Porter, Porter can jump on AC. Unfortunately it isn't free anymore (for non Porter employees). Unlimited jumpseaters now.

Yes, except you'll need a credit card now.

I'd rather have unlimited JS available and pay $15, than be bumped when there are empty seats and another non Porter pilot got there before you.

In the past you could pay for a Porter pilot's "standby ticket" and then get the designated "jumpseat" but the price ends up being the same it is now. I am OK with this new deal since it opens up more seats.

Do other airlines jump on Porter through MyID travel or is there a jumpseat number?

Cheers

Filled out by each person yes, as for cleared by the Captain... I guess technically, however every time I've gone with them it's never been denied so long as there are seats. Not sure if they even talk to the crew anymore but I always pop in and say thanks either way.

Ya you have to fill it out. It's Porter's way to force you to "ask for permission" for the ride. With the CSRs handling it now a days, a lot of people just assume its okay, but it's the captains seat to give away not the CSRs. It's a good habit to ask on every airline you jump seat on anyways.

In practice, you will never be turned down if there's space aval.
