Can someone who is flying positive space take advantage of MVP benefits, IE earn miles and get on the upgrade list? A friend of mine works for B6 in FLL and id like to gift her MVP status if she can use it.
Positive space as in purchasing actual revenue tickets yes. But not on ZED fares, buddy passes, flying positive space due to union contracts (deadheading), etc.
I am not sure about employee discounts though.
ETA: I saw the comment... The words were free positive space, which I am not sure if that is how it is supposed to be phrased, but it sounds like your straightforward non revenue standby. In that case, no.

I had MVP status a few years ago, and it's nice to have for early boarding, but on a positive space ticket, or any industry discounted ticket you aren't going to earn miles, or be eligible for upgrades in the same way as a revenue ticket.
