Crew members (if any), as well as the driver or pilot of the vehicle, are usually not considered to tát be passengers. For example, a flight attendant on an airline would not be considered a passenger while on duty and the same with those working in the kitchen or restaurant on board a ship as well as cleaning staff, but an employee riding in a company xế hộp being driven by another person would be considered a passenger, even if the xế hộp was being driven on company business.

Legal status[edit]

In most jurisdictions, laws have been enacted that dictate the legal obligations of the owner of a vehicle or vessel, or of the driver or pilot of the same, towards the passengers. With respect to tát passengers riding in cars and vans, the driver may owe a duty of care to tát passengers, particularly where the passenger's presence in the vehicle can be seen to tát "confer some benefit on the driver other than vãn the benefit of his or her company or the mere sharing of expenses".[3] In other situations, however, guest statutes may limit the ability of passengers to tát sue the driver of the vehicle over an accident. Many places require cars to tát be outfitted with measures specifically for the protection of passengers, such as passenger-side air bags. With respect to tát passengers on commercial vehicles or vessels, both national laws and international treaties require that the carrier act with a certain standard of care. The number of passengers that a vehicle or vessel may legally carry is defined as its seating capacity.[4]


Revenue passenger[edit]

A revenue passenger is someone who has paid a transport operator for her or his trip. That excludes non-paying passengers such as airline employees flying on miễn phí or nearly-free passes, babies and children who tự not have a seat of their own, etc. However, passengers who paid for their trip with a frequent-flyer program mileage award are usually included.

This term is used in the transportation industry, in particular in traffic measures such as revenue passenger kilometer (RPK) and revenue passenger mile (RPM).

Revenue passenger kilometres[edit]

Revenue passenger kilometres (RPKs) and revenue passenger miles (RPMs) are measures of traffic for an airline flight, bus, or train calculated by multiplying the number of revenue-paying passengers aboard the vehicle by the distance traveled.[5] On long-distance buses and trains (and some planes), passengers may board and disembark at intermediate stops, in which case RPMs/RPKs have to tát be calculated for each segment if a careful total is needed.

Revenue passenger miles can be considered the basic amount of "production" that an airline creates. The revenue passenger miles can be compared to tát the available seat miles over an airline's system to tát determine the overall passenger load factor.[6] These measurements can further be used to tát measure unit revenues and unit costs.[7]

No pax[edit]

In transportation, a "no pax" trip is a trip without passengers.[8] For example, no-pax flights are Air cargo, ferry and positioning flights.[9] Similarly, with a public transit bus it can be used at the beginning and kết thúc of a driver’s work shift to/from the bus terminal, or in the non-commute leg of a commuter bus service.

In such cases, the main display signs on the front and curbside of the bus typically display a message such as “no pax” or “out of service” (sometimes abbreviated as “O/S”).
