I was just wondering if anyone knows much about the extended family program. To my surprise people link was not much help in this area. I wanted to know if the travel charges are the same as for immediate family or if they are expensive, more like an ID 90. Also if the ticket must originate in the U.S. as my Father in law lives out of the country. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

EF travel has same rules as old D3 rules. They cover close family members like grandchildren and grandparents and parents. Brothers and sisters, brother and sisters in law, etc. D3 rates apply which means around $80.00 each way coast to coast. They must list for the flight 8 days in advance for supposed security reasons right now. You can find all the rules in Res since we just had to use EF passes for a family emergency. My brother in law didn't qualify for an A9 pass but qualified for EF.

From what I know of the EF plan family members are charged at the former D-3 rate. This does not include parents. They are charged the D-2 rate. I do not believe that the travel must origionate within the US. To find the rates go into RES and after signing in use this entry:
