My question, if I'm flying standby to another country (from the US in my case) how does it work with customs? Don't I have to show proof of a return trip? When flying standby I can't always get a boarding pass for the way back (domestically at least).

I am naive when it comes to international travel so I appreciate the help.
Are you flying non-rev as an airline employee or on a buddy pass? If so, you could get a print out of what the two airlines I worked for called "the meal list" showing your return flight. The meal listing can be changed as the flight gets closer.

Technically, this isn't a customs issue, it's an immigration issue. The immigration agent for the country your going to would be trying to determine if you qualify for the visa waiver program in effect for travelers to that country. I've never been asked to show a return ticket when traveling internationally. Where are you going?
