Special COLAs Awarded
April 6, 2021
On April 5th, the company processed requests for Special COLAs to those who had submitted requests. If you bid for one of these options we encourage you to review your award. Most notably and as a reminder, the interline travel exception for those on Special COLAs ended on March 31st.
Based on the interline travel agreements with other airlines, United is unable to extend interline travel to anyone who is not actively working or fully retired under normally published retirement guidelines after this date. Because the deadline was last week, some of us on Special COLA are being caught off guard at not being able to secure interline travel. This is not an error and is consistent with the information we published earlier this year when the announcement of the exception was made.
