Economy vs. First/Business Class

The standard rule is that all airfare purchases must be economy class, but there are a few exceptions. For information about these exceptions, see the First/Business Class Approval Request.

State Contract Airfares

  • View State of Texas contract airfares and rules on the Texas Comptroller’s website.
  • Available through Concur and the University’s contracted travel agencies
  • Fully-refundable and some non-refundable fares available
  • Changes allowed after ticketing with no airline change fee
  • Most contracted flights are currently offered on either American Airlines or Jet Blue
  • These fares are not available to the public and are not for personal use

Airline Published Airfares

  • Available to the general public
  • Each airline sets its own rules for refundable and non-refundable tickets (i.e., ticketing deadlines, change fees, how unused funds can be reused, etc.)
  • The majority of airlines do not allow the transfer of unused funds to another traveler – this makes it very risky to purchase non-refundable airline airfares for prospective employees and official visitors
  • Many airfares require reservations to be ticketed within 24 hours
