    OK – noticed that you are listed on the flight (489) with no pass classification.Flight 489 operates JFK (New York Kennedy airport) to PUJ (Punta Cana, Dominica Republic).You are the ONLY ones listed at this time.Off line non-rev would be a S4.Flight 489 is a 737-800 with 16 FC and 144 YC.Booked with 12 in FC and 143 in YC.Availability - F/C 4/16 and Y/C 1/7/144.So odds are very good - hopefully your party of -3- will be seated somewhere in coach (and together?).Ordinarily non-revs are assigned the best seat in the house (FC) - (Pass class and seniority as factors).Your S4 is the lowest pass class - still yet if you are the ONLY ones non-reving you should get on in coach.The likelihood of getting FC is difficult to predict.After clearing the Upgrades and Premium customers there should be seats available in coach.This routing non-stop is the best over the alternative of going thru ATL (Atlanta).The availability on Flight 1743 JFK-ATL a 757 (about 20 some non-revs listed) is a possibility but makes atight connection to Flight 543 ATL-PUJ a MD88; a smaller aircraft (capacity 149) no non-revs listed (YET).RMA

    hey RMAThanks for the reply! i am just thinking of taking DL over B6, i have stand by tix for both of them. Never flown both of them so trying to get tips from the experts! what is a pass clarification? i work with Austrian Airlines at the hub in vienna as a supervisor, is this something like the priority list? S4 i all other airlines i gues so the lowest you can get as you said. what do you mean with availability in Y/C 1/7/144

    ANSWERS:what is a pass clarification? i work with Austrian Airlines at the hub in vienna as a supervisor, is this something like the priority list? Pass Class starts with S1 emergency/business - S2 employee Vacation - S3 employee ordinary travel - S3B Retirees - S4 Offline other employee travel and Buddy Passes.Standby boarding is done first by Class of Pass and then Seniority.S4 i all other airlines i gues so the lowest you can get as you said.You may get a S3C class of pass if your airline is part of the SkyTeam alliance - not sure about this ?what do you mean with availability in Y/C 1/7/144

    Thanks for your answeres. As I can learn now European, Asian and U.S airlines are dealing with non revs quite different. Austrian is member of star alliance so priority will be the lowest (S4 as I learned now
