PE is open to you all on a Space A basis.

Space A means that you are allowed on the flight if space is available. I was told you fall under Cat V. Here are the catagories for those who are not familiar.

Category I:
Emergency travel on a round-trip basis in connection with serious illness, death, or impending death of a member of the immediate family of the following:

United States citizen civilian employees of the DoD stationed overseas.

Full-time, paid personnel of the American Red Cross serving with United States military services overseas.

Uniformed service family members whose sponsors are stationed within the Continental United States (CONUS) and the emergency exists overseas.

Family members of United States citizen civilian employees of the DoD when both sponsor and dependents are stationed overseas at the same location.

Category II:
Sponsors on environmental and morale leave (EML) and accompanied family members.

DoD Dependent School (DoDDS) teachers and their accompanied family members in EML status during school year holiday or vacation periods.

Category III:
Members of the uniformed services in an ordinary or reenlistment leave status and uniformed services patients on convalescent leave. Members on convalescent leave may not travel overseas unless their leave form is so annotated.

Military personnel traveling on permissive temporary duty (TDY) orders for house hunting.

If the permissive TDY is for the purpose of permanent change of station house hunting, the member travels in Category III and can be accompanied by one family member.

Bona fide family members (up to age 23 with a valid identification card) of a service member of the uniformed services when accompanied by their sponsor who is in an ordinary leave status within overseas areas between overseas stations and air terminals in the CONUS.

This privilege does not apply to travel of dependents to or from a sponsor's restricted or unaccompanied tour location or to travel in a leave status to or from TDY locations. It applies only to round-trip travel to an overseas area or the CONUS with the sponsor. DoD 4515.13-R restricts use of these privileges to establish a home for family members in an overseas area or the CONUS.

Foreign exchange service members on permanent duty with the DoD, when in a leave status.

Category IV:
Unaccompanied family members (18 years or older) traveling on EML orders. Family members under 18 must be accompanied by an adult family member who is traveling EML.

DoDDS teachers or family members (accompanied or unaccompanied) in an EML status during summer break.

Category V:
Students whose sponsor is stationed in Alaska or Hawaii.

Students enrolled in a trade school in the CONUS when the sponsor is stationed overseas.

Military personnel traveling on permissive TDY orders for other than house hunting.

Category VI:
Reserve components/members.

Retired military members who are issued DD Form 2 and eligible to receive retired or retainer pay.

Family members (up to age 23 with a valid identification card) of retired members when accompanied by a sponsor.

Now on to the trip. Depending on the day you travel your flight plan and time of travel varies.

The benefit of this is if you are manifested(that means you got on at Osan as space A and want to fly to Seattle, you are guarenteed to be on that flight) you won't get bumped off.

The flight will cost a little under 30 bucks a person. You will be required to purchase a ticket to your final destination from Seattle. But I am sure that ticket will be much cheaper in the long run.

The PE team will be running commercials and doing briefings on Safety Stand-down days so the word gets out.
