    Is it true UPS employees can fly for free if theres room on a plane? I've heard rumors that you can, I know on some UPS planes there's like 3 seats lol. Just wondering if anyone has ever heard about this.

    Couldn't even fly for free as US Military, I doubt UPS is any different, though, while I was in the military I was routinely offered a free upgrade to first class whenever available. I feel like if I asked for something similar for working for UPS I'd be laughed at.

    About 15 years ago a PT sup told me he got a seat on a flight to World Port.

    He had to go there for a training seminar.

    We had a plane mechanic who worked in Louisville on the weekends and would "jumpseat" on our jet. I think I remember management going for training also being able to. So your answer is pretty much no.

    For a small fee, that will let you ride in the wheel well.
    Be careful, or the hydraulics will crush you like a bug.

    When I was active duty we could fly space available on military aircraft for $10.

    It was actually a C-141 and, no, it was not fun. Cold and loud.
