What does ID90 mean?

ID stands for Industry Discount. The number indicates the amount of discount on the standard full fare economy rate. ID90 means 90% off. If you have a ID90 ticket, you're traveling on a standby ticket. This means that you'll only get on board of a seat happens to be available.

How to book an ID90 ticket?

This depends on your airline. myIDTravel is a popular choice for airlines, but your airline might have a proprietary system. Please ask your airline if you are unsure about booking your ID90 tickets.

Please note that myIDTravel indicates the loads in a funny way, based on smileys. These indications are not exact and have proven to be unreliable. We've got your back: you can request exact and reliable flight loads with our StaffTraveler app.
