Red,

I bought a 20% off , Positive fare this year. It is a positive seat fare and was lower than the fares that I found on Expedia and other sites which most of the time used AA in getting to my destination of COS. Tom

The FO I flew with last month mentioned the ID20, also. First I'd heard of it.

He said he checks on internet for best AA fare posted, then calls Reservations and asks what they would charge. If they quote higher, he points out the internet fare, they check it and give it to him.

What are the rules on an ID20? Can you get it as a last minute "walk-up" to the ticket counter, or is only in advance thru Res?

Sounds like a good deal as long as they give you 20% off lowest fare and not just OAG posted full fare.

Aloha Alan.....

Here [in part] is some information found on JetNet that will hopefully answer any questions you might have.

"You may purchase AA20 tickets for eligible family members using any form of payment acceptable for purchasing revenue tickets. To purchase AA20 tickets, call 1-888-WE FLY AA and select option 3. Tell the Reservations Representative that you are a TWA retiree and would like to purchase an AA20 ticket with your credit card. If you qualify, an electronic ticket will be issued and the itinerary and receipt will be sent. If a paper ticket must be issued, the ticket must be picked up at a ticket counter or Travel Center. Please allow up to eight calendar days for your itinerary and receipt to arrive by mail."

You cannot just "walk up" and purchase the ticket. As a matter of fact for ANY reduced rate ticket you must go through 1-888-WE FLY AA. They will price it and give you a PNR [record locator]...then you can go to any ATO and purchase ticket.

Hope this helps...

Aloha,

Benay

I continue to be pleasantly surprised that AA honors Internet fares in the AA20 program. The TWA Trip Book clearly states: "Most of our published fares allow for AA20 discounts but exceptions can occur from time to time. Web fares, including AA.com discounts, do not apply." For once, it seems, the good guys get a break .

What if you were not able to retire? Went to AA then got laid off? Is the AA20 only for retirees and speaking of that does anyone know the retirement rules under AA? I know at TWA we had to have a combination of 60. I am laid off from AA over 2 years this past July thus no flight privileges. can I "retire" from AA and gain flight priv as a retiree? (Obviously no $ in that but the flight benefits wd. be nice!) I can't find anyone who seems to know the AA rules and am persona non grata on the AA site now that the 2 years has passed! Thanks!
