RUPA MEMBERS:  A brief note from RUPA President Cort!

Below might be of interest to our membership:

Q: What if I purchase a Basic Economy ticket and bring a full-sized carry-on bag to the gate?

A: Employees and retirees who bring a full-sized carry-on bag to the gate will be required to gate-check their bag to their final destination. Please note, if you have not yet used your allowance of two free checked bags, you’ll be able to gate-check your carry-on bag free of charge. If you have already checked two bags, you’ll be charged the applicable checked bag fee plus a $25 gate handling service charge (payment by credit card only). In an effort to help our employees at the airport and assist in a smooth operation, we ask that pass riders check their full-sized carry-on bags in the lobby.

Q: Does the space-available bag policy change due to the new Basic Economy fares?

A: The bag policy for pass riders is not changing. Eligible pass riders will have the same baggage allowance they have today, including two free checked bags, a full-sized carry-on bag and a personal item.
