Thanks for the update! That’s awesome news.
I just joined this week (@32yo) and bought 5 tickets for my family to Spain on lie flat beds from ORD. Total out of pocket was just $1700 after spending Avios (that I’ll earn back).


So if I am booking flights for 2 will I need two AARP numbers or one to get the discount?

I wonder if you can use the BA companion pass for a second ticket if your on BA.


[…] That was interesting!  The AARP website clearly stated that the discount is for outbound travel November 1, 2014 – March 31, 2016.  Clearly they had extended the effective travel period without updating their website (note: they finally updated the website sometime over the weekend). […]


I booked a ticket for travel in April of while the fare sale was going on a few days ago, but the discount hadn’t been extended then. Do you think I could claim an additional discount?
