Two air travelers who flew with their families for the holidays have flown more than 40,000 miles between January and March, an airline that provides a rare look at holiday air travel.
“We are always looking for ways to improve our service, and we are always expanding our services,” said John B. B. Cogan, the chief executive officer of United Airlines.
“Our team of service leaders continues to work hard to expand our service to our customers.”
The company reported that the airline expanded its holiday services to seven more cities, including Boston, Denver, Los Angeles, New York City and San Francisco, in March.
The flights averaged 9.6 hours and 11 minutes, respectively.
For the past several months, United Airlines has offered its customers an upgrade for a one-time fee.
The upgrade, which can be used in any one of its destinations, includes a new seat and a new boarding pass that allows the passenger to access their flight information from any device, such as a mobile phone or tablet.
The company said that it has increased the number of upgrades available to passengers.
“Customers who have flown with us in the past year have flown an average of 10,827 times,” B.C. COO Bill MacGregor said in a statement.
“They have added a new pass, which they can now use on the plane.
This upgrade is a great way for our passengers to enjoy their flight more than ever before, and gives them the option to fly with friends or family for the first time in years.”
United is offering the upgrade to customers who have purchased a United ExpressPass for the last four years.
Customers can apply for the upgrade online or in person at the airline’s U.S. offices, where they will be asked to provide proof of income.
If they choose to apply online, the airline is allowing them to book their flight using the U.K. departure dates, which is when they will depart for the U: A new one-way flight from the U to London that starts from Gatwick Airport on Feb. 1.
If you prefer to book the flight in person, you can use the app to enter the departure time for the next departure.
