Date: December 1, 2017
Type: AFA Article

Flight Attendants who desire to change their 2018 Pass Travel preferences may do so beginning December 4, 2017 through December 28, 2017 (up to 7pm CT).

During Pass Travel Enrollment, employees can elect from the following options:

  1. Choose between a second enrolled friend or regular buddy passes.
  2. Choose your enrolled friend(s) names or remove names to keep slots open to designate later in 2018
  3. Choose your regular buddy names.

If, on the other hand, you do not want to make any changes for next year, no action is required and

  1. Your election for a second enrolled friend or regular buddy passes will automatically rollover.
  2. Your current enrolled friend(s) and extend family buddies automatically rollover.
  3. The names of designated regular buddies expire at December 31 at midnight. This will create twelve (12) open slots that can be filled if you choose regular buddy passes for 2018.

Critical Reminders:

  1. Once the enrollment period closes, no changes can be made to you elections.
  2. Your enrolled friends and buddy pass riders names must match exactly to what appears on their travel documents (i.e. Driver’s license or Passport.)
