How to Non-Rev Like a Boss

Let’s Talk About Non-Rev Etiquette!

The Basics

Traveling standby, also known as non-rev, is a PRIVILEGE. It is a privilege that many of us join the aviation industry to take advantage of all of the perks that come with being able to non-rev. When you opt to non-rev, your behavior reflects that of Spirit Airlines and any other airline that you may be traveling on as passengers may not know you do not work for American, Southwest, etc. You are a brand ambassador at all times when non-revving.

Once all revenue passengers, including revenue standby, have been accommodated, available seats will be allocated on a priority status to those standby waiting at the gate. Please note that seniority does not determine the type of seat (aisle, window, etc.) that will be assigned.

When using company benefits, YOU, your eligible dependents, and all buddy pass riders are expected to follow all company procedures and policies outlined by Spirit Airlines and/or other airlines. As the employee, it is your responsibility to ensure you, your dependents, and buddy pass riders are familiar with the rules associated with non-rev travel as you, the employee, are accountable for their actions when traveling with Spirit Airlines or our partner carrier agreements.

Look the Part: Dress Code

All travelers utilizing employee non-rev benefits are expected to look the part and meet personal appearance guidelines outlined in the Spirit Team Member Handbook. Sign in using your Spirit RA credentials. Some airlines that we have agreements with may have slightly different dress codes therefore it is recommended that you dress business casual. Remember, you are a representative of Spirit Airlines at all times regardless of the carrier you are traveling on.

Again, it is your responsibility as the employee to make sure you, your dependents, and buddy pass riders are dressed properly. Spirit Customer Service Agents, Gate Agents, and all other airline employees have the right to deny boarding to any/all non-revenue customers who do not look the part and meet Spirit or other airline dress code policies.

Last But Not Least: Travel Smart

Your travel privileges are valuable and a huge perk that comes with being a Spirit Airlines Team Member, however, the company and your first priority should be our paying guest’s experience. That means you, your dependents, and buddy pass rider’s actions should never jeopardize the company’s reputation or operation. The company reserves the right to deny or suspend pass privileges for any behavior deemed inappropriate after reviewing facts and/or circ*mstances. Upon completion of any investigation into unwanted or inappropriate behavior, the company may suspend all pass privileges and/or disciplinary action up to and including separation of employment.

Some common issues that are seen by inflight crewmembers that we would like to remind you of are:

  • Employees or pass riders using non-revenue or reduced rate travel may not engage in barter, transfer, or sale of such privileges. Also known as selling your buddy passes.

  • Non-revenue or reduced-rate transportation must not be used for travel in connection with independent business ventures or other purposes.

  • Non-revenue passengers are not entitled to service recovery compensation for delayed or canceled flights nor denied boarding compensation.

  • Employees who are absent from work (sick calls, leaves, etc) are not permitted to use such benefits without prior approval from human resources. Such use without authorization is considered an abuse of this policy.

  • Non-rev status for Spirit Airlines is awarded by system seniority. Not first come first serve.

    • first come, first serve is ONLY for the Jumpseat on our A319s and A321s.

  • List yourself accordingly and check loads as needed. You may need a Plan B, C, D, and E.

  • Please do not pre-board with the crew.

  • You are not entitled to “free” drinks and/or snacks. Always expect to pay, and be gracious if the working crew declines to take a payment from you.

  • You are required to adhere to ALL passengers' directives. “Seat belt” sign on, you must stay seated.

  • You are not allowed to be in the forward or aft galley during boarding/cruise/service/or any time. If you have a seat assignment, please take your seat.

  • You are not the working crew and are not privileged to security-sensitive information or working crew responsibilities.

  • You can not arbitrarily move yourself to an Exit Row or the Big Front seats without asking permission from the crew first.

This list is not all-inclusive and team members should refer to the Spirit Airlines Team Member Handbook which can also be located on Spirit LiNK and your Flight Attendant EFB. Read the handbook in its entirety and familiarize yourself with the contents of the book so YOU can Non-Rev Like a Boss!

The fees vary based off of zones outlined by MyIDTravel and are required to be paid for all dependents and employees, especially for international travel as no one is exempt from government taxes. ZED Fares are STILL STANDBY, SPACE AVAILABLE and do not guarantee a seat.

The first step to non-revving like a boss is to know if you AND your dependents can fly on any specific airline.
