Default Travel benefits for life after retirement

Hi!

Does United Airlines offer travel benefits for life after retirement (family as well?)? If so, what are the conditions to get that?
Also, what is the list of travel airline partner we have access?

Life benefits eligible after you step on the property. Takes 25 years to get free First Class travel. Travel discounts on almost all US and major international airlines.

Why, are you "considering" applying?

Travel is no longer a benefit. It's more a crap-shoot. Non-reving should be called Non-flying. In the last 8 years, I have been on the JS about half of the time that I have flown, and not by choice. Want to take your special lady friend along? Goooooooood luck.

I think that we need to get out of the mindset that we have travel benefits. As for me, pay me more and I'll just buy tickets.

Neat hat trick. Convince employees of a (non) travel benefit to travel, sucker them into buying “discounted” tickets, because every other Greyhound refugee is buying what’s left of the open seats. Load factor increase on the backs of employees.

Time to spare.... travel by air, should be the employee res disclaimer.

I really wish I could disagree with you.

**As I understand it**, it's even worse for retirees. Once retired, you no longer carry DOH for SA travel. At age 65 and a day, you get a swift kick in the nuts and your years of service disappear like hot young titty tequila shots at a bachelor party. You're now lower than the UA Express bag smasher hired last week.

Pay me more now. I'll save up for a nice used 40-foot diesel pusher motor home. Nat Parks, here I come. Or a nice ketch or trawler. I'll buy FC tickets for trips to Hawaii and EU.

Google the number of ATP's in the US. Then, Docs, Attys, etc. SA travel? AYFKM?
