It’s not as easy as the old days, that’s for sure! Today, flying standby is always a roll of the dice. There are many different scenarios for flying this way; one, for example, is when a traveler misses a flight and they’re in a hurry, the passenger is usually left with little to no option, other than to wait on a standby list. While you don’t know if you’ll board the flight you’re waiting around for, sometimes it’s worth the chance.

Waiting on standby can mean a much better flight schedule than you had originally booked and can even save you a nice chunk of money, but unfortunately, that doesn’t always work out. If you want to know how to fly standby, it’s best to know how to increase your chances of success. Luckily, we’ve got a quiz that will test your standby flying smarts. Good luck!
