Well, I have 5 kids, two of them teenage girls (I know, I’m crazy).  I gotta think there’s an AFI not forcing 7 people in a 1 bedroom TLF.  

Have you called billeting to see if they even have TLFs with enough rooms?

I’m at PIT now and didn’t bother with billeting at all. Straight to my PIT pad. My guess is that they will give you whatever TLF they have available at the time and if they have any available they won’t be giving you a Non-A. 

Why not just move your family into your final location? You will still draw BAH from your losing unit till you inprocess your gaining unit. Add that to you $60/day and you can get a nice apartment or PIT pad.

I want the family with me for the TDY.  I’m just curious if I will be able to get a non-A given the size of my family and the size of the RND TLFs.

FWIW your family are on your PCS orders not your amendment for the TDY enroute, so RND will give you a TLF if available but they say they aren't required to provide one. So no Non-A.

Hi y'all.  New poster, new to the AF (well, Guard), heading TDY to Altus for school soon.  Been reading through the forum and trying to piece together some info and have some questions...

- Is AirBnB still not acceptable or was that silliness reversed?

- Do you get up to 60/day for off-base lodging if you do NOT obtain a Non-A?

- If people don't drive (I'm coming from OCONUS) to Altus, how do they get from OKC to Altus?  The gouge they send doesn't really cover that well...

Thanks all, gonna be good times!

Not sure about the AirBNB question, but there are several pilot crash pad choices here now. They are set up to provide lodging invoices, and yes you are entitled to $60/day if you choose to go off base. I was on base for 3 days and they put me in old ass lodging with a mini fridge and microwave so I checked out and went to a crash pad.

If you fly into OKC, I’d say people would be renting a car at that point. They used to have a shuttle from the Lawton airport to Altus, but I doubt that exists from OKC. If you’re off base, you need a car anyways, so I’m not following your logic.

I thought they were putting "meals available" on Altus orders....So if you elect to go off base you still get the $60/day vs if you opt to stay on base you get the "meals available"rate which is what $20 or something?

My orders say proportional rate, which is $30 + $5 for incidentals. There used to be some weird crap about meals being available on weekends when there was no flying which lowered per diem, but I haven’t seen anything about that this trip.
