In partnership with our ALPA MEC, United Airlines recently hosted a “Pilot Family Open House” at the Denver Flight Training Center. The event, attended by approximately 300, was open to eligible family members of current United pilots and served as a way to assist family members who may join the ranks as United pilots in the future. The two-day event allowed family members direct access to our recruiters as well as an opportunity to be part of a pilot hiring workshop and networking event. Additionally, those family members with the most competitive qualifications based upon hiring criteria were invited for a one-on-one meet and greet with pilot recruiters who completed a resume review and provided guidance regarding how to become more competitive in the hiring process.
Additionally, United is thrilled to unveil our new Polaris business class featuring a re-imagined, sleep-enhancing, lounge-to-landing experience for intercontinental travelers. This completely re-conceived experience exemplifies the new spirit of United and the innovation, excitement and operational momentum across our airline. Employees have been able to experience Polaris with system-wide showcases before the expected December 2016 roll out.
