Airline Retiree's Pass Bureau
If you were with TWA for over 10 years, are over age 50, and collecting (or elibible to collect) benefits from the TWA Retiree Plan, handled thru the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC), but retired past the AA flight benefits cutoff deadline ... There is good news.
A service that provides airline travel passes, ID-90s or special rates for most TWA retirees, is available for your use, and does not require any connection with AA pass benefits. The Airline Retirees Pass Bureau (ARPB) was actually begun years ago by TWA, offering TW passes to EA, PA, and BN retirees, who lost benefits when their airline shut down.
