Working Crew Members Thanksgiving Holiday Season Buddy Pass Travelers
November 2, 2019
United Flight Attendants and Pilots who are working crew members will have the ability to travel with up to two individuals using buddy passes who will travel at the crew member’s personal boarding priority of SA1P during the upcoming holiday season.
Domestic and International travel beginning November 24, 2019 through December 5, 2019 and again December 18, 2019 through January 5, 2020 is included. In order to take advantage of this boarding priority for buddies who are traveling with crew members, when listing through employeeRES, employees must check the box labeled “traveling with working crew” to ensure buddy pass travel plans are booked at the correct boarding priority.
Working crew members must notify the CSR in person when a buddy accompanies them in the city where the buddy is to be boarded and at the connecting city where there is an aircraft change. If seats are not available or the buddy pass riders are not senior enough to be boarded in available seats they will travel at the unaccompanied buddy pass classification (SA4P for adult buddy children, SA6F for extended family buddy or SA7U for regular buddy). The boarding priority must be changed prior to moving to the next scheduled flight.
If you have questions, contact the Employee Travel Center through Help Hub and track the progress of your request.
