STANDBY ON YOW/YMQ/EWR /YTO:
Passengers have the ability to show up at the airport and list themselves to fly on an earlier flight. Many passengers make use of this. These passenger numbers show up on the standby list and they have the highest priority. Therefore on the day of departure, the standby numbers will change by the hour. Also, passengers flying early means the later flights will have more seats available.

Listing is required for each flight. No exceptions on this.
All non-rev staff must check-in online or at the check-in counters. Seat numbers will be assigned at the gate. If you are at YTZ the seat numbers will be assigned at the customer service counters past security.
