Remember that jumping is a privilege, not a right. The following label policies and restrictions must always be adhered to when exercising Jumpseat privileges: We will do our best to keep these links up to date and agreements up to date. However, if you see something that needs to be updated, links, airlines, inserthesist instructions, etc., please, email@example.com. Thank you very much and happy trips! Remember, jumping is a privilege requires professional behavior at all times. Be polite to the agents when you ask for the Jumpseat. Always ask the captain`s permission and thank you for the trip, even if you take a cabin seat. Never let an officer pass in front of the cockpit without asking the captain`s permission. The FARs require the captain to know you`re on board. When boarding, identify yourself as a reference to cabin crew. Some airlines require passengers without income or jumpseaters to fly for the last time, and vice versa. Always be the accomplished professional by jumping. This is one of the most valuable professional benefits we have! Be courteous and polite to the gate attendants.
Remember that they don`t get the same benefits of riding on other racks for free, but never, never let yourself talk in the jump seat or jumpseater on a flight for which you are the ticket – no matter how they ask or what kind of favor you think you are doing. They may even offer you coupons, but this practice has led in the past to lost jumpseat agreements. The Jumpseat belongs to the captain, not the goal agent! It`s not just another seat! Employees and other non-retired employees also have priority over jumpseaters, which generally have the lowest priority of each. You may be invited to deplane at the last minute. Airlines will not delay flights to Jumpseater. If we risk delays in other airlines, we could jeopardize mutual agreements with that airline. The rules for the hand-held agreement for carry-on baggage are unique for the airline, including rating procedures, clothing and check-in requirements. Cabin crew members, including those who have recently joined our crew community, can benefit from these agreements.
You are invited to check the airline`s various policies and procedures, either by visiting the „Reciprocal Travel Agreements” page in the „Single Members” section of our unitedafa.org website or The Travel Section of United`s Policies and Procedures. Our constitution and statutes of the AFA CWA list mutual agreements as one of our objectives in negotiations with each airline of our members. So far, we have performed very well in our campaign and we will continue to work to expand the availability of these agreements. United Flight Attendants with a crew badge have access to free economy seats available on airlines that have cabin seat agreements with United Airlines. The agreements allow cabin crew members with crew badges to occupy a cabin seat available on that airline and, in exchange, United has agreed to be „over-reciprocate” and to accommodate cabin crew of these other airlines, who will then be able to occupy cabin seats available on United aircraft.
