Question About UA Non-rev Benefits

Sat Jun 11, 2005 6:12 am

I was wondering if some UA'ers could help me out.

I have accepted a job offer for UA in management. I haven't been around the UA system for a while and I was wondering if they still have the "BP10" option for non-rev travel? IIRC, only the employee (not other eligibles) could fly BP10 right?

I'm also wondering, do they allow single employees to designate a travel companion (instead of a spouse, since I'm not married)?

And lastly, now that they are e-ticketing for non-rev travel, about how long does it take for them to take the funds from the paycheck? (When I worked for UAX years ago, it was often months before I got charged.)

Thanks for any help maybe I'll see you around the UA system.  Smile You can shoot me an e-mail if you don't want to discuss this stuff publicly.

Yes. BP10 is for employee only and we still have it

"do they allow single employees to designate a travel companion (instead of a spouse, since I'm not married)?"

We do not have a designated travel companion like DL. We have domestic partner benefits both for same and opposite sex.

-Same sex benefits you get everything like spouse such as health and NRSA
-Opposite sex you only get NRSA


"e-ticketing for non-rev travel, about how long does it take for them to take the funds from the paycheck?"

Within 1-2 pay period. That includes companion passes.

Welcome to the UA family. Btw, what position will you be doing?

United does still offer BP-10 travel for employees only. It is not offered for dependents- just as you had thought.

United does not allow someone to designate a travel companion. It's either your spouse or your domestic partner.

The E-NRSA travel is great! No more WYO's! It takes about 2 weeks for the charges to show up- much MUCH quicker then with the old paper Write-Your-Owns.

Hope this helps!
