Do pilots’ families fly for free?
Not all airlines offer this perk, but many of them have added this benefit in recent years. This benefit varies from airline to airline. Family members may fly free when space is available or at discounted rates. Flying stand-by is a common benefit, but it can be challenging when there is a group. Some airlines provide “buddy passes” to pilots to share with friends and families. This is a good question to ask when you are considering accepting a position with an airline.
