I saw it at one time. Can't seem to find it now. Does anyone know if this offer still exists?

... and just remember that the companion ticket only applies to identical tickets over $299 from some very select fare bins. Good luck trying to use it in a logical way.

thanks for the link 21A.

Plasticman-can you elaborate on what you mean by select fare bins. I think we'll use it HNL to continental U.S. you think we may have problems using it this way. I've used United's companion flies free and haven't had problems. I hope AA is the same. Unfortunatly for us to leave this island our fares are almost always more than $300. Thanks for your warning.

I noticed this offer will expire today. Anybody know if they'll extend it? I thought I read someplace that this offer is offered quite often.

Look at the footnotes for the offer (follow the link at the bottom of the pages shown above. Here's part of what it says.

Whoa, this is kind of freaky - I was about to ask about this and here's a thread on it today...

Does that mean there's no way to use a companion coupon to get Mrs. Philo into F?

I'm thinking of heading to LHR for Veteran's Day Weekend (prompted by the FT get-together - what the heck). I found fares for $450 RT, and figured I could use the companion cert to get us both there. I'll be EXP by then...

So if I book one coach ticket, is there a combination of EXP, miles, and this coupon that gets us both into either business or F?

Thanks...there's also a lot of black out dates. Be careful.

1. Is your $450 fare in one of the listed fare classes? If not, what is the cheapest fare in one of the listed classes?
2. I think that EXPs get these little EVIP thingies that will put them into Biz. Don't know about using EVIP on companion ticket, though.
3. My experience with these companion tickets has been that I normally can buy 2 fares in deep discount cheaper than one in the eligible fare classes. Also, remember that the companion does not earn mileage. It always seemed to me that the only use for the companion coupons was if you were on a company paid trip, and wanted to take a companion along, and the company booked you into one of the eligible fare buckets.
