    What's wrong this this company? Any airline should happily fly our troops home, gratis...or at least at cost..with no charge to the troops.

    Those men and women have already given enough.

    Unbelievable.

    This really should be a no brainer.

    Don't fuck with the troops.

    Except when it comes to negatively impacting the bottom line.

    Then all bets are off.

    This is what you get when corps are run for profit only.

    They have no moral codes.

    Why people want them to be able to do whatever they want is beyond the pale.

    I disagree. So long as they are not charging troops for stuff they do not charge civilians I see no problem. The military generally gets a discount on plane tickets as is. Every base has a travel center for that purpose.

    Thanks for wanting to give us extra cuts in costs.

    But Delta and US AIR give the military deep discounts on travel and a standard. And they give vets head of the line in some places.

    or at least they used to. Last I used them was '93.

    And most of us can fly for free. we generally don't b/c you get your moneys worth when trying to fly on another military plane/jet.
