Pass Travel UPDATE July 19, 2014
1) Summer Travel Newsletter from the ETC
2) Good time to review OTHER AIRLINE TRAVEL
If United doesn’t fly (or is fully-booked going) to where you want to travel, use your retiree travel benefits on Other Airlines.
There are now THREE methods for buying discount eTickets or paper tickets on Other Airlines. Which method you use depends on the carrier.
1) eTickets on Lufthansa, Delta, JetBlue, Southwest & TAP are purchased using the MyIDTravel tool.
2) All other eTickets are purchased using the ID90T website.
3) Paper tickets must be requested online from United then written at a UA ticket counter.
All THREE METHODS are accessed from the page on Flying Together>Travel. To determine which method is used for the carrier you wish to travel on, use the drop-down box near the top of the Other Airline/Interline Travel page to “Select from the Interline Agreements below”. Each agreement will detail who can travel and how to purchase tickets for that carrier; read it carefully!
For a step-by-step guide to Other Airline travel, visit RAFA's newly-updated Other Airline Travel page in the left menu or click here.
Also: “Torgi’s Travel Tips” in the July RUAEA Newsletter gives step-by-step instructions for using the new MyIDTravel tool.
