1. Plan your trip, be flexible, be patient. As a rule of
thumb, military ports offer more travel opportunities than
commercial gateways (i.e., travel chances are better to Europe
from Dover AFB DE than Philadelphia IAP PA).
2. If possible, travel at off-peak Space A travel periods
(i.e., peak periods are the summer months after school is
dismissed and Christmas holiday season). Historically, Feb-Mar
and Oct-Nov are low travel periods.
3. Be as flexible as possible in choosing a destination.
If you want to get to Ramstein AB, Germany, consider a flight
into Rhein-Main, Germany, or even RAF Mildenhall, United Kingdom,
as an alternative. At Mildenhall, try for another flight bound
4. When traveling Space A with young children, prepare for
possible delays along the way where baby supplies may not
be readily available. A good supply of games and books is
also recommended. Be aware that a baby's ears, like an adults,
are sensitive to altitude pressure changes.
5. Space A is just that—space that is available after all
mission requirements are fulfilled. Military aircraft are
subject at all times, first and foremost, to DoD mission response.
6. Flights are now operational between Lambert-St. Louis
and Dallas-Fort Worth, and for travel between the Midwest
(Lambert-St Louis International Airport (IAP)) and the West
Coast, AMC has flights Sunday and Wednesday to Los Angeles
International Airport. The flights return from Los Angeles
on Monday and Thursday. Be sure to call St Louis in advance
to ensure missions are operating. Normally, there are 50-100
seats available each way.
