Just booked my tickets for DC, I got an amazing deal. Independence Air is offering 20% off all flights with a valid college ID! Even with taxes and a fee for a shuttle and/or gas for a friend (I’m flying into Dulles which is farther from the hotel than Reagan would be, but IA doesn’t fly there), it still costs me less than even Amtrak would. (Stupid Amtrak!) At a fraction of their travel time, too.
If you want the 20% off, just use this link, also listed on their homepage:
