Any agency will let me booked at published fares. The problem is, the published fare is more than I want to pay. Panda Travel has an acceptable bulk fare on AA, but UA has better flight times, so I am trying to find an agency that might have a bulk fare on UA.
For those who don't know, a bulk fare is an unpublished fare that an agency makes a contract with the airline to offer, typically at a fare lower than what is public available through the airline's own web site or any travel agency/website.

Usually, wholesalers will not sell their negotiated bulk fares unless they're packaged by a retail agency with hotel accomodations and/or other land options like rental cars.
If you want a whole vacation package, you won't have a problem. If you're looking for air segments only, you may only be able to get published rates or perhaps some other negotiated fares via online distributors like Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz, etc.

We got a bulk fare for our soccer team group. 50 people for like $350 each. I can't remember the travel agency off the top of my head though. It's something like Travel Sports International, and I think its in Manhattan Beach if this helps.
