      I'm trying to non rev to sydney through LAX tomorrow but am concerned about the fact that the flight shows up on Deta's payload optimization list. Does anyone know how to check whether a specific flight has weight issues? I'd rather not fly to LA if I'm only going to be stuck there.

      Weight restrictions stink, and it's hard to know. I was once waiting 3 days in ATL to go to NRT, and didn't get on. On the 3rd day, we nearly made it, but then dispatch sent over a tire (a tire?) to be hauled over. Freight takes precedence over non-revvers, since freight earns revenue. So, on that type of flight, you will see lots of availability on non-rev, but that does not mean you have a good chance of getting on.
