Both MIL/FED employees should be able to purchase airline tickets for TDYs. The cost per ticket for a gov't ticket is out of hand. An individual can purchase a cheaper fare ticket, and if needed, pay a small change fee as mission evolves. Either way, the change fee will not amout to the price of a full Y fare ticket. While most vouchers are submitted in DTS, the administrative work following should not increase work load. In DTS, the tab is called "substantiating records". The member will post the record as per other postable items. The record will then be permanent part of the MIL/FED member's travel voucher.
