    Just called American Airlines to check pricing on a flight to my cousin out in Charlotte. They quoted me $410 round trip for the flight.


    I asked if they had any military fares... guy said "sure, lemme check". comes back and tells me the military fare is $465 round trip.:rofl: and :ugh:

    Hotel rooms do the same thing. It isn't so much that it is 'military rate' as it is 'government rate'. The government rate is usually on par with commercial rate.

    Sometimes the AA military discount is a better price and sometimes it isn't. From what I do understand it allows military personnel to change, cancel their flight without penalties if they purchased a military ticket. Keep in mind I was told this by a reservationist and wasn't paying much attention at the time :o

    Delta gave me a 52% discount when I flew from Chicago to Atlanta. They almost jewed me they said they only give discounts when you're flying on orders. I'm going to keep doing this everytime I fly so I can get the hookup :coold:. I bought the tickets the day of it cost me $144 I believe.
