Is there a simple way for calculating the cost of an Industry Discount (ID90) ticket?

Simple. It's usually 10% of an unrestricted coach fare (example Y, YUA, Y26, etc) plus taxes.

Basically.. the number next to ID, such as ID90, or ID75, is the ammount off the ticket.. so ID90 is 90% off the ticket.. ID75 is 75% off..etc

Take the one way fare, and move the decimal point to the left one spot.

Kidding!


I have done this....go to the airlines website and price a one way ticket between the two points with an unrestricted fare and take 90 percent of that.

Ok; here's the part that's confusing me. ID90's are supposed to be 90% cheaper than the unrestricted fare, right? While doing a search on expedia.com, the most expensive one-way fare from College Station (CLL) to Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW) was $118.50 (The ID90 was quoted to me at $85.00 [a mere 28% savings]). The ticket I actually bought was a round trip for $123.70 (The most expensive fare I could find published on expedia.com was $355.50 [approx. 65% savings]). Below is the "Fare Calculation":

CLL AA DFW Q18.60 32.66Y26D/ID90 AA CLL Q18.60 32.66Y26D/ID90 USD102.52END ZP CLL3DFW3

I would have thought the fare would have been $35.55 (since $355.50 is the normal round trip fare) plus tax; can some one explain why the ticket is $123.70? Thank you.

You cant really find out what the exact cost of an ID90 is from the fares published online as online fares generally differ from the airlines normal published fares which most ID90's are priced using.

CLL to DFW full Y one way on AA $488.37

JHooper- one way to figure out the most expensive ticket for the airline is to go to the airlines site, and get a quote for, say, the flight you want leaving tomorrow with an unresitrcted coach ticket. Another way, call up the airline and ask for a quote for the most expensive coach ticket. Prices on expedia and other travel sites are generally not the most expensive ticket available since they focus on cheap tickets.

These days its often a lot cheaper to buy a discount ticket than (especially) an ID50 or even an ID75. Not only that, but as a revenue pax, you won't be offloaded.

Although I qualify for ID tickets, I found that it was a lot easier (and cheaper) buying RTW tickets and discount tickets - and then getting an upgrade - than going through the hassle of applying for ID tickets, waitlisting - and especially at peak travel times - having to fly from A to B via every other letter in the alphabet.

Most airlines have now entered into an interline agreement where staff fares are calculated in the "Zonal" system. The system works on a series of zones according to mileage (say 0-500, 501-1500, 1501-3000 make three different zones). Your trip is then classified according to these zones and you are charged a set fare. The ID90, and 75 system exists only with airlines that are not participating in the Zonal web.

"Just interested in how YOU qualify for an ID-anything ticket?"

You generally have to work for an airline or be a eligible family member of an airline employee such as a spouse, or dependent children. Some airlines also allow parents of airline employees fly on ID90's. Just depends on what the agreement is with each airline.

I have to agree with Ceillidh. I've ID75 (only on the airline my sister works for) but can get the fares cheaper if I don't use ID75. However if you want a daytrip than ID75 is the way to go (allthough you still are on standby).

Moreover a friend of my has ID95 and he even buys regular tickets as he hates to be on standby (I don't know if all airlines have the same policies on this one).

Laurens

AWA22, one can also be a travel agent to get these tickets.

Travel agent's rebate tickets are AD (Agent's Discount as distinct from Industry Discount) - ie AD75

CLL AA DFW Q18.60 32.66Y26D/ID90 AA CLL Q18.60 32.66Y26D/ID90 USD102.52END ZP CLL3DFW3

The ID90 Fare is 32.66 each way between CLL and DFW.

I'm not sure what the Q charge of 18.60 is each way....

The ZP (airport fee) is 3.00 each for CLL and DFW airports.



This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

I am a few years removed from ticketing, but I believe the "Q" is security charges.

It is based mostly on a zonal system these days - most interline arrangements are zoned into ZA, ZB, ZC, ZD etc.

OneWorld has its own zones - I'm sure Star does as well.

BA publishes staff 'ID90' fares which don't really bear any relation to the standard fare - but that is the base from which ID80, ID75 and ID50 are calculated.
