IIRC the deadheading FA's even on OAL are considered crew by the FAA. Maybe it's just for the jumpseat?

So while on vacation, no. While deadheading / commuting, yes.

I almost wound up in EWR instead of IAH a couple of weeks ago because of this. The board showed IAH, the time was right for IAH boarding. The flight was listed as "on time". Right aircraft type.

No issues at SEA. Biggest hassle was the TA borrowing someone's SHARES cheat sheet to find the commands and the dummy flight number to book me a paper ticket on.

Yup, got one. The last resort "Keep the miles alive" card.

The benefits are:
1) It's a visa. (So some of the standard visa stuff applies)
2) It earns miles.

Nothing on bags or any of that...

Came to the conclusion it's less about earning, and more about borrowing from you at 0% then borrowing on the open market at X%. I'd guess X is not small given the...
