flying tip

You can fly stand by

Business Select, Anytime fares, and A-List members can opt for earlier flights when they have opened up free of charge. But Business Select and Anytime fares can simply be changed to earlier flights when there’s availability so sometimes it doesn’t make sense to go the standby route. Wanna Get Away passengers can sometimes get put on standby two hours before or after their flight — this is an unstated policy though so YMMV. The deadline for making changes to your flight is 1 hour prior to departure.
