   Pass Travel UPDATE          September 4, 2019


**  Message from Kirk **

It has been a pleasure and an honor to serve as RAFA’s Travel Benefits Chairperson for the last 8 years. Keeping myself and fellow retirees informed about Pass Travel, collaborating with the kind & patient employees at the ETC, working with all RAFA council Presidents to get information to you, presenting travel seminars in SFO, LAX, SEA and representing retiree organizations in Chicago have all been very fulfilling, but now it’s time for me to move on. This will be my LAST Pass Travel UPDATE. I am also stepping back from keeping this website current and updated.

I have often forwarded valuable travel tips from other retirees, specifically Pat Palazzolo at RUPA and Kathie Torgison at RUAEA. So I’ve gotta say THANK YOU, Pat and Kathie!

Retiring now doesn’t make me feel too guilty since the latest Pass Travel information is available 24/7 on Flying Together/Travel. The Employee Travel Center has done a great job with the Flying Together Travel website and both the new employeeRES and the United app are terrific for listing/booking. I highly recommend retirees get comfortable with using Flying Together for Pass Travel; if you need help, ask a question at 

Happy trails!

Selling pass travel privileges: not OK

We all know travel privileges are fun and exciting, and they’re an important part of the rewards offered to us from United Airlines.  As a gentle reminder, your pass travel privileges are intended for use only by you and your own close friends and family members. Sure, you can be reimbursed by your pass riders for any taxes, fees and imputed income for their travel, but charging above that amount is not allowed – and selling pass travel or trading for goods or services isn’t either. 

To help make sure that we can continue to enjoy pass travel, we need everyone to know and stick to the Pass Travel Guidelines:

So, read and understand these guidelines, explain them to your pass riders and always keep them in mind when using your travel privileges.

Also, it’s very important to be careful and not to share your United ID and Flying Together password with anyone, as they could be used to add pass travelers to your profile and book travel without your knowledge.

If you have any questions about the policies, you can contact an Employee Travel team member through Help Hub (
