Braniff Flight Attendant Retiree Travel Program

 





March 2012


Subject: TRAVEL INFORMATION UPDATE


With the merger of Southwest and Airtran, we now have pass benefits on Airtran, However, while Southwest is still paper tickets (Valid until 01Dec 2012) we will be using ZED fares via the my ID Travel electronic system. Similar to fares and rules that we have with JetBlue.
 
Listing and ticketing will be done immediately (up to 2 hours prior to departure of any flight).
Passes may be requested no more than 2 or 3 days in advance - same as with Delta, Jetblue, Allegiant and now Airtran.
 
FYI Southwest will also be going to e-ticket (Via MyIDTravel) sometime during the Summer of 2012..

Dear Clipped B's,


Below is an update regarding our retiree travel program with the ARPB. While several airlines have dropped out of the program others have joined. Please review the entire memo below for the latest information. It should be noted both the Pass Bureau and Clipped B Pass Card ordering addresses have changed.


PLEASE NOTE: JetBlue has changed their policy for issuing companion travel passes. Effective immediately only "single" employees are eligible to order a companion pass. If you are married you are no longer eligible for companion travel on JetBlue.
