Gocaps - As has been said pretty clearly, AA does not offer free travel to anyone (employee, parents, spouses, dependants, etc.) unless the employee has been with the company for at least 5 years. Until an employee's 5th anniversary, they get only highly discounted tickets. By highly discounted, I believe that the domestic tickets cost approx $.005/mile, or about $15 for a SAN-JFK flight. First and Business Class travel is available at a similar discount.
After an employee has been with the company for 5 years, D2 coach travel in the "domestic" system, as defined above by CannedSpam, is also free of charge. First and Business Class travel, however, do not get any cheaper; nor does international travel.
After an employee's 25th anniversary, coach travel becomes free systemwide, and First and Business Class fares are discounted by the amount of money that new employees pay in coach.
As an example:
Domestic: For a domestic trip that costs about $10 for coach, and about $25 in First:
An employee with 0-5 years would pay: $10Y, $25F
An employee with 5-25 years would pay: $0Y, $25F
An employee with >25 years would pay: $0Y, $15F
International: European flights are approx. $75Y, $100J, $150F
An employee with 0-5 years would pay: $75Y, $100J, $150F
An employee with 5-25 years would pay: $75Y, $100J, $150F
An employee with >25 years would pay: $0Y, $25J, $75F
The same fares apply to all D-2 travellers, including spouses and dependants.
The fares provided are examples, and do not necessarily reflect actual D2 charges.
