American Airlines Extends Special Fares and Other Offers for U.S. Military Personnel Through December 2008

FORT WORTH, Texas — American Airlines has extended through Dec. 31, 2008, several special offers that are available exclusively for active-duty members of the U.S. military. These offers include discounted airfares, relaxed advance purchase requirements, and preferred boarding privileges.

“American Airlines has extended our special fares and offers for members of the military and their families several times over the past few years, and we’re delighted to do so again,” said Dan Garton, American’s Executive Vice President – Marketing. “We sincerely appreciate the courage, dedication and sacrifice that our troops and their families exhibit on a daily basis, and all of us at American look forward to seeing them on one of our flights very soon.”

Active-duty members of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, Navy, National Guard and Reserves who are on leave or furlough (including those who are traveling within seven days of discharge from active service), and their spouse and dependent children, are eligible for the special military fares. The fares are available for travel to domestic and various international destinations.

In addition, the discounted military fares may be purchased up to a week after reservations are made — versus 24 hours for most non-military discount fares — making it easier for military personnel and their families to make travel arrangements. Otherwise, the discounted military fares have no advance purchase requirements, unlike most non-military discount fares.

Following are samples of American’s great low fares for the U.S. military. Fares shown are each way, based on a round-trip purchase:

Travel arrangements can be made at American Airlines ticketing locations or by calling American’s reservations number at 1-800-433-7300 (en Espanol 1-800-633-3711) within the United States and Canada. Outside the United States and Canada, call the local reservations number. Military ID must be presented at the time of airport check-in.

These military fares are not available via the Internet. Other restrictions apply. For complete rules and restrictions, see the terms and conditions below.

As a thank you to U.S. troops, American, a founding member of the global oneworld(R) Alliance, continues to invite uniformed military personnel and their families to pre-board with First-Class passengers or at any time during the boarding process.

Also, U.S. military men and women who are participating in Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom are welcome to be American’s guests at Admirals Club facilities between flights when they are on emergency or Rest and Relaxation (R&R) leave from their overseas duties. This invitation for complimentary access has been extended through Dec. 31, 2008, at all airport locations that do not have USO facilities. Eligible military personnel in appropriate uniform need only present their emergency or R&R leave forms from Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom to access an Admirals Club location. In addition, the Admirals Club welcomes family members and relatives accompanying military personnel who are part of Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom.
