  - posted 4/27/2012


  1. Retiree Buddy Passes extended thru 6/30/2012
    Many RAFA members have discovered their allotment of 2012 companion/buddy passes still exist in employeeRES and are valid past 3/31/12. Today we learned the validity for retiree buddy passes will be extended thru June 30, 2012. Let your friends know!
  2. Pass Calculator is online
    Find it here: employeeRES/Quick Links/Pass Calculator.
  3. No more verification letters
    The ETC will no longer send out verification letters for travel on Southwest, US Airways or Jet Blue. Now fill out an online form, get confirmation #, go to airport or CTO to have tickets written. More info: FlyingTogether/Travel...scroll down to “Travel News & Bulletins”.
  4. Interline Agreements and ZED travel
    There is a new drop-down box with all interline Agreements for ZED/ other airline travel.
    Go to:FlyingTogether/Travel/OtherAirlineInterlineTravel/click on “Learn about our integrated interline agreements”. There is more info there about ID90T (for Hawaiian & Frontier tickets) and using “MyIDTravel” for listing on certain carriers like Delta, Jet Blue, Lufthansa .
  5. Travel Desks to close
    After many years serving space available travelers, the 3 Travel Desks staffed by volunteers in PDX, SEA, and CHI will be forced to close May 31st because UAL won’t allow them access to Shares for security reasons.
  6. Trouble for Mac users?
    The Employee Service Center says “our systems do not support Mac applications”. Apparently no fix is being considered. If you cannot access “All About Me” to certify your dependents using Safari, call the ESC for help: 877-242-0075 opt 5.  This may also affect iPhone and iPad users. Alternatively you can try using a different browser on your Mac, like      Firefox or Chrome. Deadline to certify dependents for healthcare is now July 27, 2012.

    Employee Travel Center (for pass travel) 877-324-5555 opt 5, opt 5
