1You do have to use a travel agent. It's because they don't accept credit cards at this time.
Several have been mentioned here. I used Rubyland Tours, others Santa Monica, Columbus, etc. Google travel agents in myanmar and you'll find many to chose from.

2You can also book Air Mandalay flights via their website: http://www.airmandalay.com/
Complete the booking request and you will receive an email back either with a confirmation, or they'll advise if flight is full.
They will explain that you pick-up the tickets from their airport desk, where you'll pay in USD.
I have 2 flights booked with them for early Dec.

4re #1 comment......you DO NOT have to use an agent....you can if you wish.
Quite easy to book yourself....as above thru airline websites...Air Mandalay have repeatedly proven quite reliable for me with booking from abroad prior to arriving....just email their info/reservations email address from their website, they respond within 1-2 days with times/cost, then pick up and pay for your ticket when you arrive in Yangon. No need to pay anything upfront so no need to use credit cards.
just beware of a 'copycat' website run by a Bangkok based travel agent with a - between the words...Air Mandalay website is: www.airmandalay.com (they request 50% payment up front)

7One day in Bagan, I had no ticket for the plane because I was supposed to go by bus. No available bus ticket. They told the desk clerk who called, no available plane ticket. Called the travel agent in Rangon. He had a friend pick me up and the friend went to the ticket desk and suddenly, there was a ticket.
