Chris will be coming home mid Feb for leave. WOOOHOOOO
So far we have had to change his flight three times and each time Continental Airlines have been wonderful. They have waived fee's and penalties each time and even upgraded two legs of his return trip to first class.
While researching flights and I have to give all the credit for that to my wonderful husband who spent hours online and on the phone trying to find flights that a young Soldier could afford we were amazed to find out just how expensive it could be. At one point he found a decent price for a flight online and called American Airlines to see if they offered a Military Discount for that flight. The young lady on the phone told him that they did offer a discount for the military and quoted him a price that was almost $200.00 MORE than the flight was listed for. When my husband pointed this out to the lady she advised him that it was a different program and if he wanted the discount he would have to pay the higher price. Can someone please explain that one?
Blue Star Mothers have a petition to try to get better airfairs for Military Members. If you are so inclined I would like to ask you to go to this link and sign the petition.
Also, please remember Airman Mom's son B who has recently deployed in your thoughts and prayers. If you get a chance, stop by and lift her up.
