Date: March 1, 2018
Type: AFA Article

United management has implemented a NRPS (positive space) travel program for the Flight Attendants commuting to and from BOS, BWI, DCA/IAD and EWR airports. Flight Attendants commuting to or from these airports may self-list for positive space travel to their base to operate trips starting on Friday, March 2 through Saturday, March 3, 2018.  Once you list for the flight on which you wish to travel, your PNR needs to be authorized in order to complete the ticketing process by contacting FAST at 1-800-358-5463 (FLT-LINE) Option 4, then Option 2. Please advise the call representative that you are calling for irregular operations (IRROPS) travel authorization.

The authorization will be processed while you remain on the phone. Once authorized, you will be able to select a seat and check in for your flight.

 Please note: This positive space authorization does not place you on must-ride status and flights will not be oversold to accommodate travel.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your base supervisor.
