Federal government DG fare update
Oct. 3, 2005
Continental Airlines (now United Airlines) will strictly enforce rules regarding the correct form of payment for federal government contract YCA, -CA & DG fares. We will only accept authorized, U.S. government-issued Visa and MasterCard accounts as payment for these fares.
Travel agents should ensure that proper government ID is presented and the appropriate U.S. government-issued Visa or MasterCard is used when booking government contract or DG fares.
Improper issuance of these fares will result in a non-waivable debit memo for the difference of the contract or DG fare and the applicable unrestricted airfare. Non-waivable debit memos cannot be paid using federal government-authorized credit cards.
