JTFR question
 Login/Join
 

posted
I've been Googling and searching everywhere. When I PCS'ed to Italy several years ago, I was told that I was authorized a layover since it was an OCONUS PCS. I was able to get the same thing coming back to CONUS, an authorized layover. Now, I'm PCS'ng to Hawaii from CONUS and am told that I'm not authorized a layover. Does anybody know the actual regulation covering layovers when PCS'ng CONUS to OCONUS?

what do you mean by layover?
-you're always authorized a certain number of travel days and the meal money for those days as well as lodging at a specific rate while you're going from point A to point B.

(I imagine they're cracking down on people going from point A to vacation spot/home to point B)


And the regulation is called "JTFR". Big Grin

You were fast, I fixed the spelling as soon as I realized I had the typo. For instance, I was stationed at Ft Huachuca PCS'ng to Italy. I had been authorized to have a multiple day layover (I was on leave) in Texas while enroute to Italy since it was an OCONUS PCS. If I had been PCS'ng CONUS, I would not have been authorized a multiple day layover (even if I had been on leave) in Texas.

I didn't notice any typo. You asked which reg, I answered the question. Wink

The JTFR IS the reg which governs PCS (and all other) military travel- have fun reading. Big Grin

Where are you stationed now? Where are you trying to layover?
-IF it's "on the way" they MIGHT allow it but like I said, they're getting stricter due to the budget and all that..

But if I'm in CA trying to go "layover" in New England on my way to Hawaii, they would NEVER authorize it.!!! But if I was in New England tyring to layover "on the way" to CA to fly to Hawaii, they "MIGHT" have authorized it. But they DON'T HAVE TO....

It seems to me that you mean the Government paid for your ticket to Texas, you stayed there for a few days, and then proceeded to your OCONUS location.

This was likely possible due to how your initial flights were set up by CTO/SATO. (AZ -> TX -> Italy) If the flight ALREADY sends you to TX (through the natural booking of the ticket/use of International airports etc) then you should be able to spend a few days there and continue the journey.

However, if your flight doesnt go through the stop you already want then they will not change the ticket for you (esp at a cost loss to the government). For example if your flight to Hawaii is: Italy -> RFK, Wash DC -> LAX, Cali -> Hawaii... then the Gov wont change it to get you a stop in the middle to go to TX. This would likely shoot the cost beyond acceptable (this para mostly sums up Auto's point).

But then again what do I know, I could be totally wrong about the whole situation?
