Reciprocal Cabin Seat Agreement Won with JetBlue

Date: June 28, 2007
Type: MEC President Letter

Ladies and Gentlemen:

We are pleased to announce that United Airlines has signed a Flight Attendant Reciprocal Cabin Seat Agreement with JetBlue Airways effective July 1, 2007.  This will enhance the world-wide travel benefits we consistently work to improve for Flight Attendants.

The full agreement between United Airlines and JetBlue is posted on our website.  In summary, the agreement provides:

  • United Flight Attendants with a crew badge will have access to free, space available economy seating on JetBlue flights effective July 1.
  • JetBlue Flight Attendants with a crew badge will have access to free, space available economy seating on United mainline flights within the 50 United States 120 days later.
  • Priority on flights will first be given by each carrier to its own NRSA passengers (employees, retirees, buddy pass holders, ID 90, etc.)
  • Next, crewmembers participating in Reciprocal Agreements will be awarded space available seats on a "first come, first served" basis.
  • United Flight Attendants should kindly request JetBlue agents to check "AskBlue" if the agent is unaware of this new agreement.

We encourage all Flight Attendants to thoroughly review the Reciprocal Cabin Seat Agreement signed by the carriers along with a Question and Answer document prepared by United Onboard Communications.  Review the application of this new travel agreement to ensure you are able to fully benefit.

In Solidarity,

Greg Davidowitch, President
United Master Executive Council
