Try calling Tel-AA-Flight at 888-933-5922 and asking them.

Good luck.

To find out surcharges go to jetnet and retiree travel. On the left side of the page there are some links, i.e. travel history, check priority list, NRSA charges. Click on NRSA charges and input your destinations. I assume you had more than 25 years of service. An employees with less than 25yrs service, pays a little more than one with more than 25.

The f/c surcharge from LAX to NRT is $145.00. Business is $70.00 and coach is free, that is assuming you had 25 yrs or more.

On the return flight is a little more because there are customs fees and airport departure fees.
The return surcharges are: F/C $185.00, business $110.50 and coach is $43.00.

I hope this answers your questions. If you wish to PM please do with any other questions you may have.

Sam

Your surcharge figures to fly to Tokyo and back were most interesting and seemed to ring a bell. (an old bell)

About the time of TWA pilot’s strike in 1947. Mr. Bob Prescott began a military contract operation from our west coast to that city in Japan. Some of our furloughed pilots were fortunate enough to fly for his airline at that time.

Aware that normally we hesitate to compare apples to oranges, it just happens that the round trip F/C surcharge of $330 today is just about the same as the Flying Tigers copilot’s monthly pay at that time. In fact maybe a bit more. At 3 dollars and 65 cents an hour.....one round trip, with the involved many island stops, could bring an 85 hour paycheck up to $310.25. (And, hey, man, that wasn’t bad.)

Having said that, but with no plans for future air travel, it might be very tempting to actually fly one more of those DC-4 flights across the Pacific. Of course, that would have to be at the same “old pay scale”. Or, maybe, as the old “madam”supposedly said: “This one could be on the house”.

In any event, Sam, your humor, professionalism and most positive attitude during our airline’s most difficult last years of operation was contagious and appreciated by all.

Thank you very much, Randy for your kind words. You were a role model for all of us. [Smile]
