The pros of using a buddy pass to fly standby: it costs you nada. If the flights are open, you sail throught.
The cons? Things change in a heartbeat, so what looks like a great fun idea can turn into a big giant pain in the ass.
But the good news is that if you pay for a ticket, viola! Now you can get an open seat before someone who’s on standby!!!
TA DA! I’ll be in Columbus by about 7 PM tonight. I’ll miss a little of the opening night program, but I’ll be there for the whole thing tomorrow, and I’ll be dressed and showered and rested.
All thanks to Kelly and Anthony at “Happy Air.”
Now let’s hope my luggage gets there!
