Time Zone Travelers is a family who explores the world through non rev travel. Flying non rev (non revenue) or flying standby is a benefit that many get from working for the airlines.
How does flying standby work? Standby travel is when airline employees, their families, and their travel companions are allowed to list for a flight based on open seats.
The employee can check the non rev loads, book a flight with available seats, and then travel the world either for free or a minor fee.
When is the best time to fly standby? Pull up the flight load checker and go today if you can! Seriously, the best days to fly standby, in our opinion, are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Also, the very first flight in the morning or the red eye tend to be the most promising for your non rev vacations.
We decided to start this blog to help others flying non rev to plan their trips a little easier. Turns out, we’re not only helping airline employee travel, but others around the world as well.
As a passrider, we’re able to provide valuable non rev travel tips, restaurant recommendations, and both hotel reviews and Airbnb reviews for many vacation destinations around the world.
Jaems is the voice and words behind Time Zone Travelers. She runs the family’s Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook pages. She enjoys these standby passenger benefits and tries to take advantage of them as often as possible. As the kids get older, she makes it a priority to create as many travel memories as a family as she can.
Time Zone Travelers wouldn’t be here without this guy right here. Bryan is the airline employee of the family, so he works hard to provide us with his staff travel benefits. Not only is he a pilot for the best airline out there, but he plays a huge role in Time Zone Travelers blog. He’s the cute IT guy.
Kelsye is the model of Time Zone Travelers and sometimes takes over stories on Instagram. Nonrev travel has played a huge role in her life the past few years. She takes her brother on annual trips to places like Disneyland and Nashville. She enjoys non reving so much that she hopes to become a flight attendant after college graduation.
Every family has “the funny one”, right? That funny one is Gavin. Gavin has earned himself fans on Time Zone Travelers Instagram page through their stories. If you were to ask Gavin, “How do you fly standby?”, he’d have one answer for you: First Class. LOL! Gavin is the youngest of this family of non revs, but he brings lots of laughs with his personality.
