A family member may join US Air and has suggested that I would qualify for pass travel in his account (not buddy-pass, but as immediate family permanently listed on his account). I realize that MP is mostly about earning/burning miles. Is there another forum better suited to learning about nonrev travel? Basics as well tricks of the trade. Starting with zero knowledge, I do have some basic questions: 1. Is domestic nonrev travel allowed only on US or other airlines as well? 2. Is international nonrev travel allowed only on US or other airlines as well? In particular, can one nonrev to Asia where US does not go, but *A partners do? 3. I realize that I may be standby, but are you on stand by in connecting cities as well? Of course, I could ask my family member too, but he too is new and does not inspire confidence quite yet. One thing I have learnt at MP/FT is that experienced flyers often know more than employees.
