WASHINGTON (') - The Civil Aero-
nautics Board (CAB) announced Friday
that youth and family air fares are "un-
justly discriminatory" but put off order-
ing their cancellation pending hearings
on a possible reduction of normal pas-
Tne board also approved the so-called
"Discover-America" excursion discounts
for the next 18 months but ordered they
be canceled at the end of that period.
In an 83-page order summarizing its
investigation of domestic discount fares,
the CAB indicated it may order a re-
duction of all passenger fares when the
youth and family discounts are dropped.
Reversing ,a 1969 decision justifying the
airlines' policy of giving discounts to
special groups, the board said current
aims air fares discriminate
studies show the discounts don't create
much new business for the carriers and
in the long run require higher normal
fares to cover the cost of transporting
"The elimination of the discounts," the
board said, 'would permit lower normal
fares, and these reductions would have
a traffic generative effect across the en-
tire spectrum of the air-travel market."
The board refused to commit itself
to lowering normal fares, however, say-
ing current and future costs must be
restudied. The CAB only last year grant-
ed the airlines a 9 per cent fare hike in
an earlier phase of its present domestic
passenger-fare investigation which has
been under way since January 1970.
Youth fares generally apply to pas-
sengers between 12 and 21 years who
hold valid youth identification cards pur-
chased from the airlines. Young people
who fly standby normally pay two-thirds
of the normal coach fare, and those who
make prior reservations get a 20 per
Discover-America fares are available
for flying roundtrip, economy class on
a journey that lasts between seven and
30 days. The airlines often limit Dis-
cover-America ticket holders to flying
at specified times or days of the week
and generally for trips totaling at least
In announncing its findings on the spec-
ific discount fares studied, the board
set down a new policy that it said will
govern all promotional fares without de-
priving the carriers of "flexible -market-
ing tools to deal with short-term condi-
tions of excess capacity" on regular
In the future, the board said, the air-
-May offer discount fares if they are
not unjustly discriminatory and if they
generate enough new traffic to make up
for those who take the discount even
though they would fly anyway at the
