Open load requests for your airline from other StaffTraveler members are shown on the 'Requests' tab.

To start entering the loads for a request, select a request from the Loads tab by tapping it. If the flight has not yet been opened by another member, the Enter loads screen will appear. The flight is now locked for you to answer for 5 minutes, so take your time to enter the correct loads.

Five input fields will appear: FIRST, BUS, ECO+, ECO, and the input field for the number of NON-REV passengers.



FIRST First class
BUS Business class
ECO Economy class
ECO+ Economy plus / Economy comfort
NON-REV       Listed standby passengers


Please note that all classes will always be shown, also if it is not available on the flight. If a class is unavailable, leave the input field empty or enable the 'This flight has no ... class' switch.

Some airlines give a capped number in case more than x seats are available. For example, if more than 9 seats are open, 9 will be shown. If this is the case for your airline, select 9 open seats and enable the 'There are more seats available, but I don't know how many' switch. 

Select the number of open seats for every available class. Then, select the NON-REV input field. A second row of input fields will appear.


In this example, there are 4 open seats in First Class, 7 in Business, and 2 in Economy Plus. Economy class is overbooked by 12, and there are 5 non-rev passengers listed on the flight.


First, select the total number of non-rev passengers. Then, select the number of non-rev passengers per available class if available. Please note that the total of non-rev passengers must match the sum of the non-rev passengers per class.

If your airline doesn't show the number of non-rev passengers, enable the 'I don't know how many non-rev passengers are listed' switch. It would be wise to elaborate on this in the comments of the flight because some users might report the loads as inaccurate if this information is missing.


What do the codes in my booking system mean?

While there's no golden universal standard, these are some of the codes that you might find in your booking system:

Discount Economy: K, L, Q, V, W, U, T, X, N, O, S
Full Fare Economy: Y, B, M, H
Premium Economy: W, E
Discounted Business: D, I, Z
Full Fare Business: J, C, D
First: A, F

At StaffTraveler, we try to keep things simple, universal, and understandable for everybody. That's why we don't use these confusing codes but easy-to-read classes. Please sum up all available Economy (ECO), Premium Economy (ECO+), Business Class (BUS), and First Class (FIRST) seats and enter the totals in the corresponding boxes in the StaffTraveler app.
