Disallowance of Reimbursement for Travel on Foreign Flag Air Carrier
B-193620: Jan 10, 1979
- Full Report:
An Air Force member appealed a settlement which partially disallowed his claim for personal travel allowances incident to his release from active duty. Travel performed on a foreign air carrier is not authorized at Government expense where air carriers of United States registry were available. Assertion by the member that flights on U.S. airlines on the day of desired travel were full, is not a sufficient showing of the necessity for the use of a foreign flag carrier. Disallowance of the claim was sustained.
