Flight Attendants who are working Crew Members this holiday season are able travel with up to two buddy pass riders at the Flight Attendant’s pass classification seniority. This applies to domestic and international travel, and is available during the following designated holiday periods: 

  • Beginning November 19, 2017, and ending on/before midnight November 30, 2017.
  • Beginning December 18, 2017, and ending on/before midnight January 5, 2018.

When making your reservation through United's employeeRes, remember to check the "traveling with working crew member" box so that your "buddies" are booked at the correct pass classification. You are required to notify the gate agent in person, when your "buddy" accompanies you at the city where they are boarded and at a connecting city with an aircraft change. 

Note: Travel is space available. Additionally, if your buddy is unable to be boarded on the flight to which you are assigned to work because seats aren’t available, they will be listed on the next available flight at the normal buddy pass travel classification and seniority.
