The lowest available airfares shall be sought when making bookings. All 
travelers are expected to use economy class.

Business class may be used for flights exceeding nine hours in duration, 
if required to accommodate a traveler’s special physical or medical 
needs. Use of business class must be approved in advance by the ED. If 
approval is not given, the traveler may choose to fly business class 
regardless, and to personally pay the actual difference in cost."
