Holiday Buddy Pass Travelers for Working Crew Members
November 12, 2021
During the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, the company announced that United Flight Attendant working crew members will be able to travel with up to two individuals using buddy passes at the crew member’s personal boarding priority of SA1P.
This applies to both Domestic and International travel beginning on November 21, 2021 through December 2, 2021 and again on December 15, 2021 through January 2, 2022.
When the working crew member list buddies through the EmployeeRes system, they must check a box labeled “traveling with the working crew.” This will ensure the buddy pass travel plans are booked in the correct boarding priority. The company reminds the working crew member must notify the CSR in person when a buddy accompanies them at 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, and the buddy pass riders cannot be boarded, they will travel at the unaccompanied buddy boarding priority of SA4P for adult buddy children, SA6F for extended family buddy or SA7U for a regular buddy. The boarding priority must be changed prior to moving to the next available flight.
