3 months shy of 22 years for me. Age is pushing 60. Prior to the new United policy announced yesterday I met and exceeded every tier of qualification with regards to Retiree Pass Travel Benefits. Having to go back to 1/11/2011 now I do not meet any of the criteria. The way they have structured the requirements nobody will. So much for doing a little leisure traveling with my wife during our golden years. I will feel the pain every time I have to purchase our airfares. This is especially uncouth of United when you consider that most of the airline costs are fixed costs. It costs United **** near nothing to place a former employee in an empty seat on one of their airplanes.
