    Commuting at UA more difficult or not?

    By commuting crew member does the media mean deadheading crew member, or is United going to require jumpseaters to check in an hour prior now? I have to assume the media has it wrong, as always, but wondered if anybody else knows more.

    It's an hour for DH crew. The media used the wrong word.

    Thanks, that's what I assumed because a) it wouldn't make sense otherwise and b) the media never gets anything right.

    UAL MEC says the Company instituted this policy for "must ride" Deadheading crewmembers. In order to "bump" a revenue passenger, "must ride" deadheading crewmembers must be checked in 60 minutes prior to scheduled departure. Inside 60 minutes, and they are put at the top of the revenue standby list and/or are confirmed for the next flight.

    But has RAH instituted a new policy as well?
    Anyone know if there's truth to the rumor that the DH crew was to work a Delta connection flight?
    There's so many "details" that the media had conveniently left out.

    I could poke a few holes in that policy.

    I read the company email. It was really more directed at scheduling and ops. It wasn't about when crew members have to check in, it said if they needed to dhd a crew they can't make them positive space less than60 mins out. That way, if there are any denied boardings they happen at the gate, not on the plane.

    I've had this a few times from AA. 2 pm standby and scheduling sends the email call us when u sign in we have a trip. I.e 2:15 deadhead to Miami. Usually I miss it, but I've had agent's tell me they can't put me on.
