Update: Positive Space Travel for EWR, JFK and LGA
July 13, 2021
Due to the significant weather events forecast for the greater New York area, United is offering positive space to maintain the needs of the operation. To be eligible, Flight Attendants must be commuting to be in position to operate trips July 12-18.
To have your positive space authorized, create your PNR as “positive space” not space available. Once you have booked your PNR, contact FAST at 1-800-358-5463 (FLT-LINE) Option 4, then Option 2. Advise the FAST representative that you are calling for IRROPS travel authorization. FAST will authorize the PNR while you are on the call.
As with all IRROPs and Commuter Program issues, we advise Flight Attendants to keep records of phone calls, PNRs, and travel information in the event there are questions about your commute. *As a reminder, this positive space authorization does not place you on must ride status and flights will not be oversold to accommodate travel.
