Default CO Pass charges?

I've looked and looked but cannot find where the pass travel charges can be found on the employee res site. I've heard they are substantially higher than on UAL. Can any CAL types tell me where I can find what it would cost a UA guy to nonrev from RSW-IAH-SNA.

Thanks in advance,

On the opening "RES" page (the same page where you enter TO/FROM feilds as if your were going check your non-rev travel plans/loads), there is a blue hyperlink for PASS CALCULATOR.

After selecting this hyperlink, there are several fields you need to enter infomation (ie-pass rider type, state of residence, ect) via drop down menus in order the get the accurate/correct charge $$ figures $$ to which your are looking for.

Online, this is the only way I know of. I hope that helps you out....

Unfortunately, I think that function may only be available to CAL folks. There are the only a few options we are able to access. Is there a different place to look for this. This list is all we have access to:

Custom Routing
Employee Profile
Terms and Conditions
TripAlerts
Weather

Thanks for the recommendation though, I think our UA page is set up just slightly different.

Same as the cost a CO guy would pay to non-rev: $0 if you are asking about coach travel (see Q & A below)

Flying Together>Fee-Waived Economy Travel (scroll down left side of the page under "Travel Tools>Interim Pass Travel")



Fee-Waived Economy Travel

  • What’s changing with the new fee-waived economy travel privileges?
    The fee-waived economy travel privileges remove the ZED service charges from the interim program that United co-workers and eligible pass riders pay to fly on Continental flights, as well as the charges Continental co-workers and eligible pass riders pay for travel on United flights in all domestic markets.
    It also removes the service charges Continental co-workers and eligible pass riders pay to travel in economy on domestic Continental routes.
  • What flights are eligible for fee-waived economy travel?
    Eligible pass riders can take advantage of fee-waived travel in economy class on the following flights:
    • All domestic U.S. flights operated by the United and Continental subsidiaries. This includes routes to and from Hawaii and Alaska
    • All flights within the Micronesian islands
    • All flights between Guam and the Micronesian islands
  • Who is eligible for fee-waived economy travel?
    Fee-waived economy travel is available to all subsidiary United, Continental and Continental Micronesia co-workers, retirees, early outs and eligible pass riders, regardless of their years of active company service.
    Service charges for buddy passes and companion passes remain the same for flights on both United and Continental.
  • When does fee-waived economy travel take affect?
    The effective date for fee-waived economy travel is June 8, 2011 for all subsidiary United, Continental and Continental Micronesia co-workers, retirees, early outs and eligible pass riders.
  • What should I do if I’ve created a pass travel itinerary before June 7 for a trip at a later date?
    We urge all pass riders who have pending domestic, economy reservations to cancel the bookings in WebList or employeeRES and re-list to take advantage of fee-waived domestic, economy travel.
  • Does fee-waived economy travel apply to international flights?
    At this time, all co-workers traveling on their respective subsidiary’s airline continue to pay applicable service charges for traveling in economy class to and from international destinations. In addition, co-workers of each subsidiary will continue to receive a 33 percent discount on ZED fares for international travel on flights operated by the other subsidiary.
    Fee-waived economy travel on international routes will be available across both subsidiaries when the integrated Pass Travel Program is introduced in 2012.
  • Will co-workers and other eligible pass riders continue to pay service charges for traveling in premium cabins?
    Yes. All pass riders will continue to pay applicable service charges for traveling in premium classes, system-wide on their respective carriers. Co-workers of each subsidiary and other eligible pass riders will continue to receive a 33 percent discount on ZED fares for travel in premium classes on flights operated by the other subsidiary.
    Service charges will be standardized across both subsidiaries when the integrated Pass Travel Program is introduced in 2012.
  • Does fee-waived economy travel change our interim boarding priorities?
    No. Fee-waived economy travel privileges do not change our interim boarding priorities.
  • Does fee-waived economy travel change our pass travel dress code?
    No. Fee-waived economy travel privileges do not change our travel dress code policy.
  • Where do I go to with questions?
    Please contact the Employee Travel Center at [email protected] with any questions.

If you list yourself on empolyeres it will give you the total if you are flying in first for the flight before you confirm the reservation. At least it was that way last month. Hope this helps.

EWRflyer, thanks for posting that about fee waived travel. That explains the free coach seating I was quoted for a couple of flights. However, there are still charges for international Y for UAL employees.


SNA320, let me walk you through how we'd find the charges as a UAL employee.
Go to employeeRES, put in flights requested. I'll use EWR-CDG for example pricing.
Select your flights.
You will then have a pass rider page come up. Select class of service. I chose F for me, Y for my wife in this example. (You KNOW it's an example with me in F and wife in Y).
Click Create Itinerary.
Once the itinerary comes up, there will be a price listed above your itinerary on the right hand side - above travel time and flight number.
For this example, F roundtrip is $402.35 and Y roundtrip is $186.66.
If that's what you want, click 'book itinerary'.

Caution though; sometimes it'll give you bad information. I put in EWR-TUS roundtrip in F. One leg each way is on United Express. It gave me $0 for F but when I put in EWR-IAH (no United Express leg), it gave me $122.05 for F. I'd bet the latter is what you'd be charged. But the odds of actually getting a seat in domestic F are worse than getting hit by lightning.

I wouldn't waste the dollars on first since it is near 100% impossible to get it as a non-rev. At least for domestic.

The dollars aren't deducted until you sit in the seat. I always list for F. I don't mind paying for a bigger seat for my fatazz.

You're welcome. However, I know you specifically asked about RSW-IAH-SNA (domestic). I put all of the Q & A in my reply in case you were considering other travel/cabin options. It does state the fee-waived travel is good for domestic economy only until the aligned pass travel becomes effective in 2012. CAL employees will also be charged to ride international Y on sUA for now.

"The fee-waived economy travel privileges remove the ZED service charges from the interim program that United co-workers and eligible pass riders pay to fly on Continental flights, as well as the charges Continental co-workers and eligible pass riders pay for travel on United flights in all domestic markets.

It also removes the service charges Continental co-workers and eligible pass riders pay to travel in economy on domestic Continental routes."

"Will co-workers and other eligible pass riders continue to pay service charges for traveling in premium cabins?
Yes. All pass riders will continue to pay applicable service charges for traveling in premium classes, system-wide on their respective carriers. Co-workers of each subsidiary and other eligible pass riders will continue to receive a 33 percent discount on ZED fares for travel in premium classes on flights operated by the other subsidiary.
