United Airlines fires staff who sold employee travel privileges
United Airlines has reportedly dismissed more than 35 employees for selling special travel passes meant only for airline workers and their family and friends. In an article published on United’s internal website, the company said it discovered the abuse after a group of nine people tried to use non-revenue passes to board an international flight, USA Today reported. Three families claimed they had “paid for” first-class tickets, though they were on non-revenue reservations. However, they failed to identify the employees who had allegedly sold them the deals. United launched an investigation and uncovered a “brokering scheme” in which workers would ask colleagues for travel passes then sell them to outsiders. Some employees were also found to have falsified documents so that they could name people who bought the travel passes as their relatives or domestic partners.
