Questions & Answers – ZED FARES
sudden change in the Interline Travel Benefits, there has
been many questions and concerns. AFA took no time to get some answers
for our members. Please know AFA will continue to go directly to the
source to help find an answer or, solution to the issues we continue to face
during this time in Mediation.
Q: ID90s, how are
they affected by this change?
A: Air Wisconsin and US Airways have no ID90 interline agreements for our
employees. We only have ZED interline agreements (mileage-base fares) and
Service charge interline agreements. The airlines that
we had ZED agreements with were affected by this change. The airlines that we
have Service charge agreements were not changed. This is the list of Service
charge agreements: Allegiant, Cape Air, Frontier, Go Jet, Great Lakes, SkyWest,
Spirit, Sun Country and Trans States.
What if FA and family are mid-trip and havenÕt purchased a return
A: Any flight attendant or employee and family that are now traveling with
ZED tickets on airlines that we do not have a ZED agreement with currently will
need to look into other options. They can always contact us to request a ticket
on an airline that we have an agreement with or use their unlimited travel on
US Airways by accessing Wings.
Q: Why were we only given a 1 Day
A: Air Wisconsin was working closely with our travel partners on potential
alternative solutions right up until the day of the communication, Friday,
March 30th. Unfortunately, we were not able to change the
outcome. This is what caused the delay in communication to employees
Q: Why canÕt we purchase ZED tickets at US Airways
A: Because of the rule change, we were faced with two options, and we have
chosen to become an associate member of the ZED Forum. The choice of this
option means we no longer qualify for ZED agreements under US Airways or
ticketing at their ticket counters. Although it means fewer ZED agreements in
the short term (as we work to re-sign interline agreements with each individual
airline), it allows all Air Wisconsin employees to utilize our ZED
agreements, including everyone in Customer Service.
