Southwest Airlines

so this private first class was trying to get some airline tickets.

i spoke to him at work about it.

i don’t want to use his name, but his last starts with CARLISLE.

he is trying to get a flight from here, san antonio, up to dallas and back.

seems it was easier to get two one way tickets than to buy a round trip. you know how southwest runs those flight specials? they’re always one way.

now, privates in the army don’t make too much money. well, they really don’t get paid squat. they get their housing and food provided to them, and their pay is all beer money.

or for smokes.

you have to be smart how you spend the few ducats the military will give you. and you have to be careful, because they will afford you every opportunity to not collect anything you are entitled to. at least that was my experience in the navy.

y’all ever heard of military rates? they’re supposed to be cheaper right?

wrong

flt 152 sat (san antonio) to luv (dallas love field)

on the phone, with a military discount 47$ plus all taxes
on the net 39$, plus all taxes.

return one way flight

flt 177 luv to sat

same prices.

shop on the net y’all.
