Standby airline tickets are available to anyone willing to board a plane at the last minute. These tickets can be purchased with all intentions of flying standby or as a regular fare.
Standby tickets are purchased as regular airfare. Travel or booking agents can reserve these flights for you at the last minute to board flights. Standby tickets are sold when the plane is not full.
Those travelling in small parties or solo may upgrade their prepaid ticket to fly standby. Most airlines allow travellers to leave standby if the plane is going to the same destination.
The cost of standby airfare may be cheaper last minute. However, there is no guarantee that seats are available on flights as standby.
