Almost all major airlines offer senior discounts on air travel. Many offer senior discount
booklets that are sold as four one-way tickets. Others offer a fixed percentage off the fare. Four major airlines have quietly
dropped their 10 percent ticket discounts for senior citizens, and American Airlines said the change would probably be permanent.
American, Delta Air Lines and Northwest Airlines all dropped the senior discounts. Southwest Airlines said it would not
remove its senior discounts. A Continental spokeswoman declined to comment Saturday, and A United spokeswoman said she believed
the discount remained in effect but couldn't confirm it; United's reservation number said the discount remained in effect.
Senior Discount: 10% off most fares to passengers who are 62 or better.
Senior Saver Pack: Costs $596. Includes 4 one-way coupons, good for coach travel on America West and America West Express flights within
the United States and between the United States, Canada and Mexico. Flight coupons may be transferred to a maximum of 2 children,
ages 2-11, when accompanied by a Senior Saver Pack holder.

One Companion Of Any Age Flies For The Same 10% Discount.

a spouse to a grandchild to a friend - at the same low 10% discounted fare.
No Coupons, No Booklets, No Zones, No Blackouts!

ask (or check online) for the senior discount and get 10% off.
Southwest Airlines offers some of the lowest year-round airfares available. I also think they have one of the easiest websites
to navigate for booking flights. While this is a no-frills airline, and often requires that you make one or more stops before
your final destination, it's cheap and usually on-time.
