Sub-load tickets

Flight tickets available to airline employees and some family members, usually at a substantial discount ranging from 50% to 90% of face value (“ID50” and “ID90”.  The discount varies according to employee grade and also by airline.  Sub-load tickets are essentially standby tickets, meaning that passengers with these tickets will be bumped if the plane is full or the weight limit is exceeded.  Sub-load tickets are the preferred employee ticket types for several Asian and Middle East airlines such as Singapore Airlines, Emirates, and Qatar Airways.
