Gents,

There is an e-mail making the rounds stating that your AA travel privileges will be revoked on January 1, 2007 if you don’t reconfirm a consent agreement that appears only if and when you access the non-rev travel planner on Jetnet.

Not so. The warning states that: * If you decline this agreement your travel privileges will be revoked January 1, 2007.

Note the key words, “IF you DECLINE…”

Happy travels,

Paul

About a week ago I used Jetnet and when I entered the travel planner I received a notice that required me to accept certain conditions in order to continue my use of Jetnet. I selected "accept" and went on my way. The next day I again had that notice appear. I again selected "accept". Since then I have used Jetnet numerous times and the notice has not appeared.

I sure hope that this will resolve my issues with this situation. I'm not looking forward to any surprises in January.

There IS a deadline, be careful:


Travel Authorization and Consent - Due by December 31

When employees are initially eligible for travel privileges they are asked to agree to the rules in the TRIP Book and authorize AA to collect NRSA charges. In a continuing effort to electronically store information, the Jetnet Travel System now houses the Authorization and Consent information in the Authorized Traveler Database (ATD).


All active employees and former employees with travel privileges are asked to reconfirm they have reviewed the travel policies, agree to the Authorization and Consent terms and electronically sign the document. These terms acknowledge all employees and travelers will abide by the policies in the TRIP Book as well as continue to allow AA to collect NRSA charges in the same manner done today. After authorizing and electronically signing the Authorization and Consent, the information will be stored in the ATD.


If you have not already "Accepted" the terms and conditions, visit the Non-Rev Travel Planner (NRTP) page or Jetnet Check-in (JCI) to display the pop-up. All employees and former employees with travel privileges must “Accept” or “Decline“ the terms by December 31, 2006. If you have not “Accepted” the terms by the deadline of December 31, your travel privileges will be revoked on January 1, 2007. The terms and agreement pop-up will continue to display when you access either Non-Rev Travel Planner (NRTP) page or Jetnet Check-in (JCI).

Jeff is right. On December 5, 2006 AA changed the "rules" of the game with the following notice:

"What is the deadline for accepting the terms?
All employees and former employees with travel privileges must "Accept" or "Decline" the terms by December 31, 2006.

What happens if I decline the terms?
If you have not "Accepted" the terms by the deadline of December 31, your travel privileges will be revoked on January 1, 2007. The terms and agreement pop-up will continue to display when you access either Non-Rev Travel Planner (NRTP) page or Jetnet Check-in (JCI)."

Although I am getting tired of trusting these duplicitous people, they did not say that travel privileges would be permanently revoked, so that may help people who don't see this notice in time.

I'm not sure, but if you don't "Accept" the new terms by December 31, 2006, I don't think your pass privileges will be "revoked", but after 12/31/2006 you will be "denied" the use of these privileges UNTIL you check the "accept" box or call in and "accept" the news rules..

Jim,

I heartily agree that your thought should be the case in this PR fiasco but what's in writing on Jetnet is that if you do not accept, or if you decline, your privileges will be revoked, not denied.

I hope that those who have not heard about this situation will be offered the chance to accept on their first request for travel after Jan 1 but Jetnet clearly states, and I quote, "If you have not "Accepted" the terms by the deadline of December 31, your travel privileges will be revoked on January 1, 2007."

It may not be the intent but it couldn't be plainer.

Paul

Hello,



As you may be aware, former and active employees with AA Travel Privileges are being asked to review and electronically sign an Authorization and Consent form in Jetnet (details and Q&A information are below).



I am sharing the attached information with you in hope of enlisting your help in communicating information to our retirees with AA travel privileges. Recent response numbers for the Authorization and Consent form are lower than desired from our retiree groups. Whatever avenue you can use to help us spread the word would be greatly appreciated.



Please let me know if you have any questions,

Annamarie

We understand that non-revenue travel privileges are very important to employees and retirees. The following change is a result of an enhancement to the Jetnet Travel System and requires action from all active and non-active employees with AA travel privileges.



Travel Policy Acceptance now Automated

When employees are initially eligible for travel privileges they are asked to agree to the rules in the TRIP Book and authorize AA to collect NRSA charges. In a continuing effort to electronically store information, the Jetnet Travel System has been updated to house the Authorization and Consent information in the Authorized Traveler Database (ATD).



All active and former employees with travel privileges are asked to reconfirm they have reviewed the travel policies, agree to the Authorization and Consent terms and electronically sign the document. These terms acknowledge all travelers will abide by the policies in the TRIP Book as well as continue to allow AA to collect NRSA charges in the same manner done today. After authorizing and electronically signing the Authorization and Consent, the information will be stored in the ATD.



Registered Travelers from the European Union and Canada

Certain countries, including European Union (EU) countries and Canada have stricter Data Protection Laws. These laws require American to obtain consent from their citizens in order to collect and maintain personal information. Therefore, employees must acknowledge they have or will obtain consent from registered travelers who are citizens of these countries. This consent allows AA to collect and maintain the information in the ATD.



What action needs to be taken?

Access the Non-Rev Travel Planner (NRTP) or the Jetnet Check-In link from the Home or Travel page in Jetnet before December 31, 2006.
Read the Authorization and Consent information that is displayed.
Click “Accept” if you agree with the terms and conditions. Once accepted, the terms and conditions are no longer displayed and there will be no disruption to your travel privileges.
If you do not agree to the terms, you may select “Decline”. If declined, the terms and conditions will continue to display until the deadline of December 31, 2006. If “Decline” is the final selection, travel privileges will be revoked in January, 2007.
Commonly Asked Questions



I have pop-up blocker on my home computer. Will I still see the Authorization and Consent information?

Yes. Although the Authorization and Consent form displays as a pop-up it is actually a link. Having a pop-up blocker function on your computer will not inhibit this information from appearing.



I am very worried about my travel being disrupted. Will I be notified before my travel is affected?

All active and former employees who have not “accepted” or “declined” the terms by December 31, 2006 will receive a letter in the first part of January advising the impending travel disruption. This letter instructs the recipient to complete the process in Jetnet to avoid this disruption (mid January).



If for some reason I do not electronically sign this form and “accept” the terms, do I lose my travel privileges forever?

No. Any person who does not complete this process will have the option to “accept” the terms and have their travel privileges re-activated. The reactivation process will take at least 24-hours.



Do I have to complete this form for all my current registered travelers? What about travelers I add later?

The Authorization and Consent form must be completed only once. This information remains in the system for the duration of your travel privileges or until a change is made to the policy requirements.



I don’t see the “pop-up” when I select the Non-Rev Travel Planner (NRTP) page or the Jetnet Check-in (JCI) page. What do I do?

Once you have chosen “Accept”, the information no longer appears. If you access the NRTP page and see the red text located in the center of the page, you have completed the process.



What is the deadline for accepting the terms?

All employees and former employees with travel privileges must “Accept” or "Decline" the terms by December 31, 2006.



What happens if I decline the terms?

If you choose to “Decline” the terms by the deadline of December 31, your travel privileges will be revoked on January 1, 2007. The terms and agreement pop-up will continue to display when you access either Non-Rev Travel Planner (NRTP) page or Jetnet Check-in (JCI).



I have registered travelers that live outside the U.S. Does this mean I don’t have to fill out and mail in the Consent form (located on Jetnet)?

The Consent Form on Jetnet is available for employees to use as a tool if they have registered travelers that live outside the U.S. It is no longer required to e-mail the form to American Airlines but the employee should retain this information for their records.
