    I realized that this hasn't been brought up yet, or I couldn't find a post about this subject, so in response to foddog's inquiry, here it is!

    I was able to secure a 5% discount for my guests from American Airlines, and it could not be easier!

    All you do is request a discount from AA, and they send you a response with the discount code. When your guests make their reservations, either online or over the phone, they use the discount code, just like you would use a coupon code online.

    I put this code on our save the dates, so our guests will be able to anticipate the approximate cost for their airfare.

    The reason I used AA is because most of our guests will be flying out of DFW, and other airlines, United in particular, require you to coordinate the travel in order to receive the discount, which I don't have time to do, and all guests were required to fly on the same itinerary. AA just gives you a general discount.

    Here's the link!

    Feel free to ask me questions about it!

    Along these same lines is the Midwest Airlines discount. I don't know if the code is still good, but I would think so! It's for 10% off of airfare. The code is CMZ3730

      You can also do the same with Alaska Airlines. We got a 10% discount with Alaska (and the 5% on American) for our guests. Call the group rate desk to get the discount code.

      I think there is a post somewhere on here about Frontier discounts too...

        Are the discounts only to be used through the airline's website? Granted, I'm not a frequent flyer or anything, but I know when I've looked for airfare, buying direct from the airlines has always been much more expensive for me. So is the discount enough that it makes it lower than going through online resellers?

        For the Midwest Discount it says that you can inform your travel agent of the code and they will apply it.

            Thanks for mentioning Frontier...I have some friends coming from California, Denver and Kansas City, and Frontier flies direct from all of those.

            Great to know, I just submitted my request for a discount!

            Thanks!

              Thanks so much Jill and everyone else! This is so helpful and I'm definitely going to contact all 3 (Frontier, Alaska, AA) to try to provide the codes.
