October 19th, 2017 RUPA Members:  From RUPA President Bob Engelman Latest travel news from the company's website - 30 minute cutoff for most new bookings!

  September 29, 2017 RUPA MEMBERS:  SFO RETIREE PARKING! Bob, Pat, Cort, Phyllis, When I flew to Las Vegas the other day I parked at the MOC and was handed a flyer that said: Effective October 1, 2017, Retiree Parking will be limited to individuals who retired from the Maintenance Base.  SFO Maintenance Base will no longer be able to offer parking for SFO Airport Ops Employees and Retirees from other stations.  This is due to SFIA constructing the extension of the AirTrain to the Long Term Parking Structure and the loss of 700 parking spaces in our West Parking lot. I was told the AirTrain project may take one or two years to complete. At that time we MIGHT be able to park there again. This closure will...
