If your company flies for United and another carrier. Do all employees get UA flight benefits or just the people working the UA side of operations?

At OO it was until recently one for those who supported the UA system but as of June 1 all OO employees can take advantage of the UA flight benefits. Now if DL would do the same that would be nice.

At RP/RW/S5, all employees now get UAL benefits. There aren't even any planes on the RW certificate that fly for UAL either. We think this was done to generate revenue for UAL. Before we all got the travel benefits on UAL, only those supporting the UAL operation got the benefits and the flights were free. Now they let everyone get them and started charging leg fees.

I work for RW (don't fly for United) and have used my UAL bennies already. A friend of mine went to China from IAD and it cost him $700. He got a good deal and United probably made some money off him, the seat otherwise would have been empty.

Highway robbery is more like it.

Coach is free system wide, but you must pay taxes on intl sections, A flight DEN-ORD/LAX/SFO will be $25.00 for C/ 2 class F and $29.00 for 3 Class F, ORD-FRA is about $50.00 + taxes and DEN-IAD is about $29.00 for C and 2 Class F and $35.00 for 3 Class F, that is what UA employees pay and I believe that OO employees pay the same but I do not know about the other UAX carriers

$0 on your own equipment
$10 on express
$20 on mainline domestic
$50 on mainline international

Taxes are in addition to the fares,a s always. Companion fares are obviously a lot more. The fares above are per LEG. So if you are connecting, you need to add the fees together.

That's how it is at RAH. Not sure what agreements the other UAX carriers have.

Based on what's said here, each carrier has their own agreement, as everyone is quoting different things. Still, $700 for that China leg is WAY too expensive.

What class was he in because if he was going to PEK in F that is a $12,000 ticket for $700 that is a 95% off ticket which is a very good price

Also depends on how far he booked in advance, and did he take the nonstop?

30 days out, presuming a 7 day stay, right now you can get IAD-PEK as low as $919 (connecting at JFK to Air China), UA is $1300, and that's the non-stop, which right now is the cheapest.

7 days out, cheapest is $1139 on Korean. UA is $2,089 for the lowest, $2,121 for the non-stop.

Without knowing how far in advance he booked, and whether or not he took the non-stop, it's hard to say just how much he actually saved.

And of course, if he went in the pointy end of the plane, as N104UA pointed out his savings would be far greater...actually, possibly even more than N104UA's example - right now, for 30 days out first class on UA starts at $19,013, and that's with connections...the non-stop is not available. The cheapest pure-first-class routing (no RJs) is $5,496 (with the long-haun segments on KL.) Business class on UA would be $3,598.

Revenue, perhaps, but I assume that he was talking about a non-rev pass since this thread is about non-revenue, at which, $700 is WAY expensive, even for first class.

Sounds like that was the cost of a companion pass, not the service charge rate for express carrier employees.

Grrrrrrrrrr. Nothing against you or SkyWest of course, but I wish ZW had done what UA did. As ZW flies for USAirways but ground handles for United, only those actually flying for USAirways get the benefits.


...I, and everyone else that works for ZW who works for United, gets zip. ZEDs and that's it.


It's too much to hope for to have United let us non-rev on them...even though we do heir work with their planes. =p
