1.3 ROUTING INFORMATION

A routing is specific route travel that a passenger must follow in
order to obtain the fare. There are 3 types of routings that can be
found from Fare Quote.

All published routings are designated in the routing column of the
Fare Quote response with an applicable two letter global indicator
followed by two digit numeric designation beginning with 01, e.g
PA01. Arbitrary two digit numbers are assigned to each global to
distinguish one from another, e.g AT01, AT02

The MPM for an itinerary is based on the outward destination, which is
the farthest point in the itinerary from the origin. Mileage fares in
a fare quote include the MPM as part of the routing definition at the
bottom of the Fare Quote display.

for the fares. The besides the booking code notifies the user that
there is more than one booking code for this fare.

governing carrier of a journey must be booked on the governing segment
of a fare component.
Secondary booking codes refer to inventory indicators on every other
segment of the fare component that is part of the governing carriers
through fare.

additional booking code values that can be substituted for primary and
/ or secondary segments under certain circumstances.

By ETR mask

BSPs requirement for storing of ETRs details in ticketing
carriers database is up to 13 months. However, airlines may have

13.0 RATE DESK PRICING

In Abacus Ticketing Module 1, you have learned how to price the PNR using auto-pricing
method where system will do the fare checks.

A Phase IV ticket record is created for itineraries, which may not be priced by the system
automatically. This is also known as Rate-Desk Pricing. Below are some important points to note
when creating a Phase IV record.

The command must be done with a PNR present in the work area.
If passenger type code is not specified in the entry, system will assume ticket record is for adult.
All intermediate and/or destination cities will indicate as stopovers by default.
If there is an ARNK segment in the itinerary, system will automatically create a void segment.
The TICKET RECORD field will be flagged as RATE DESK PRICED.

The following display describes the mandatory elements required to
create a Rate Desk Price (RDP) record.

Qualifier Description
L Line Entitlement field includes connection details, fare
basis code, validity dates and baggage allowance
Y Base fare and tax amount
