I have two questions about US employees (actually retired employees) nonrev travel:

1. Can they fly nonrev on United codeshare flights?

2. Can immediate family, who are not eligible to fly nonrev, travel on a reduced fare?

Thankyou in advance.

1) If the UAL codeshare is operated by US Airways, YES.....employees, their spouses, and dependents have unlimited non-revenue travel opportunities (standby of course). The last I heard though, if the codeshare is operated on a UAL aircraft, US employees can travel "ID 95" (95 percent off the "Y" fare.

2) They can use companion passes and get 90 percent off the "Y" fare. This really is not a great deal though. My brother-in-law recently used a companion pass from DCA to MIA and it cost $170.00 plus he had to ride standby. He probably could have done better on Priceline or something.

Cody (or anyone else who knows the answer), would you mind confirming the last part?

I did some research and the standard fare from DCA to MIA on US is approx. $180 (as of 5/2/03 for travel on 5/26/03) roundtrip.

Did you mean to say that there's a 10% discount off the Y fare (Which with taxes would make your brother-in-laws fare of $170 make sense), or did you actually mean that companion passes are 90% off (which with current prices you B-in-L should have only paid approx. $20 not including taxes).

ID90 means 90% off of the y fare. You then add the taxes and other charges on top of this. They will come out more than the fare in many cases.

ROTFLMAO!

US321 - I feel so much better! I thought I was the only one who had the whole US employee travel line memorized! God, I can't tell you how many times I've listen to that female voice calmly ask for that info. (actually I've used it so much I lusually put in the info before the recordign has a chance to "speak" sometimes!)
