United spokesperson Frank Benenati informed USA TODAY: “Having fun with flying privileges is a singular and particular benefit of working at an airline, and it’s supposed just for our workers and their family and friends. We have now clear guidelines on flying privileges so we will all pretty take pleasure in this profit.”
