American Airlines to YAPC

Posted on February 28th, 2006 by Josh

American Airlines has agreed to providing discount fares to YAPC. Using the discount code A2566AN you’ll be able to receive 5% off of American Airlines tickets for travel to and from Chicago between June 24th 2006 and July 5th 2006. The discount applies to most all tickets… details can be found below. Even if the discount doesn’t apply to your ticket, if you do fly with American to get to YAPC, please use the discount code. The Perl Foundation will get credit for every ticket sold under that code.

See you in Chicago!

    This is great, and I’m glad I didn’t book my ticket last week! However, is there a time delay before this will be in effect? I just tried to book my flight with aa.com, but when I put in the discount code I got “The Discount Code entered does not exist. Please re-enter Discount Code and try again, or remove to continue.” I’m departing on June 24th from SAN to ORD, and on July 1st from ORD to SAN. Has anyone else tried to book a flight and was successful?

    Good Job guys!

    David, it looks like an ‘A’ is required at the start of the discount code. I had two different versions and chose the wrong one… correcting the post right now. The code is ‘A2566AN’.

    Thank you for letting us know about this.

    Damn, they raised their prices in the meantime. Ah well, at least YAPC is getting money out of it. :-)

  5. Josh Says:

    I think that you can use the code through travel sites like Orbitz, Expedia, and Travelocity. I typically can find better prices on those than on aa.com.

    Hmmm, hadn’t thought of that. I took “The percentage discount can be booked on-line at www.aa.com for AA/AE flights only.” to mean that you can only use www.aa.com to book the ticket. But now that I think about it, I can see another (your?) way of reading it: only AA/AE flights at www.aa.com are applicable to the percentage discount. Well, it’s too late for me (since my ticket is non-refundable), but maybe someone else has luck using it at another travel site.

    Hmm, I think that I was wrong. I just tried to use the code through Expedia and didn’t have any luck… darn.
