buddy pass question


#1 Oct 11, 2008
Im new to the Buddy pass program. I was hoping someone could help me...

I was checking the upcoming flights and trying to decide on what day to go. Problem is, I'm not sure which is the real number of seats available..

On the login site I see numbers under
Also on the standby list it says "# of seats available"
They are always different from the numbers under Av/Au. Which one should I trust more? Thanks

"Av" is the number of open seats remaining.
"Au" is the number of seats the company will sell (Delta ptentially overbooks all flights).
And "Number of seats is the airplanes total capacity.

There is a fare calculator on the Travelnet web site. Delta probably wouldn't want the actual amount put on a public web site, but it will be very reasonable. The toughest thing about traveling on a buddy pass is not the cost. It is the low priority and you must be very very flexible in your travel plans. It shouldn't be a big concern to travel during those dates because load factors are down for all airlines right now.
Have a good trip.
