I cant remeber the last time I paid for a ticket...

You didn't fly since last century?

Someone else buys your tickets?

You use SF methods to get your tickets?


PS: Paying for taxes etc is still called paying.

He asked if I was an agent. So other people thought its obvious that I was from the fact that I'm active on the paid ticket thread.
He doesn't look at that thread, so he didn't know if I was an agent :)

Interesting. My agent always wants me to make LY or Flying blue tickets through him, takes no extra, but does get a commission.

It's fine, but travel agents can no longer make solicitations in posts for people to contact them.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thanks so much!

So I can answer a question but not tell them to contact me, correct?

Can we make an exception for specific price quotes, I mean why is that worse that reporting a fare found on expedia? He's been helping  people on the need help thread.
