If you are an active duty member of the US Military, American Airlines has special discounts you can take advantage of to save some money on your flight:
1. Special flight discounts.
2. Waived checked bag fee (for first three items and five bags if traveling on military order).
3. Preferred seating option.
These offers aren’t publicly advertised, so you have to ask your booking agent or any travel service you use about what military discounts are available at the time of your booking.
Note: you’ll have to present your ID card or service number when booking for your flight as proof that you are in the military.
