No problem. If you do find a discount via SkyTeam Global Meetings, it would be
nice to have a report of someone other than me (and especially not from the US)
getting a discount rather than a price at or above published fares. The more
info I have when I follow up with SkyTeam on the issues so far, the better.

That will be convenient indeed, yes. Our deal is with SkyTeam, not Star
Alliance - the rules for Star Alliance's similar programs (they have two) are
just different enough that neither one is a match for DebConf's size and model.
TACA is apparently already code-sharing with United Airlines, so you can
probably book that entire route via United today.
