Many airlines have their own specific rules and procedures when it comes to non-rev passengers. StaffTraveler includes a large database with airline-specific, non-rev related information.

Tip

Be flexible

Go with the flow, if you can’t get to your number 1 destination, try another one, there are so many beautiful places in the world to see!

Tip

Be kind

Always be thankful and kind to the gate staff. Once on board, remember you are a guest allowed to use a very nice perk that comes with the job. Bonus points if you bring the FA's some snacks to get through their duty!

Tip

Dress smart

Sometimes, you’ll get an upgrade to business class; you might as well look the part (and some airlines demand this as well), so no flip-flops or torn jeans! Airline-specific dress code information can be found in the Airline Notes in StaffTraveler.

Tip

Relax

There's always a chance that you don't get on the flight you wanted to take! Take a deep breath, relax and find out if there's another flight. If not, find a cheap hotel on the StaffTraveler app, get a good night sleep and try again tomorrow.
