      Looking at buddy pass cost and I was looking between MSP and CUN and it listed 2 fares, buddy and yield.The tax's were the same but the buddy pass cost more.I don't have a clue what yield fare is but the buddy pass base fare is twice as much as the yield fare.Thanks.

      Isn't the yield fare the cost for a designated companion?

      We pay yield fares for our Non-Dependent children.

      If I'm not mistaken; yield fares would include your spouse, mother and father, and any children or dependents (not sure about age limit for children), and buddy passes would include anyone other then the before mentioned. From the language on the learn more tab, while listing buddy pass / yield fare, a round trip would count as a single buddy pass which are obviously limited, but yield fares are not limited as of my knowledge. In addition; I believe that yield fares also cover domestic partners, including someone that you live with but are not intimate or have a relationship with. If I am wrong on any of this, please let me know.

      The yield fare is the price for someone listed with flight privileges under an employee–flight partner, spouse, children, parents.The Buddy pass is the cost for the buddy passes allotted to each employee that they can give to a friend or relative to fly stand-by at a discount.

      I also wanted to add that DEPENDENT children (under 23 years of age) do not pay yield fare. They are fly free domestically and pay only taxes/fees internationally. NONDEPENDENT children (23 and over) do pay yield fare.
