    good luck...


    all i know to do is keep searching the various websites for the good deals. Very few, if any, give special rates for military anything.

    There are 10 types of people in the world, those that understand binary and those that don't

    your best bet is to use places like orbitz and others.

    most of the time the military rate is more expensive than the lowest advertised rate.

    I know Southwest has military rates but their online rates are usually cheaper. Any discounts that are offered wouldn't apply to you if you aren't married, though.

    , sorry I read your post above wrong, I thought it said without being a military spouse.

    discounts aren't really out there, from my experience.

    You can try Space A, but that's on very short notice.

    no, space A is very hard to use, as a spouse you cannot just use it, the veteran may be able to but there is no telling if the flight would get cancelled diverted or if there is even a flight pattern that would work when you wanted to go-- they do not schedule flights the same as a public airline, sometimes they will only from from one base to another 1 time a month.
