So many airlines, so many systems...whos is the best and why?? KLM's famous system "CODECO" aka "HUGO" is a personal favourite and I think the best for Sked airlines...The old Amadeus which is currently being used by EY in YYZ is very outdated with many flaws...SABRE is annoying, ARCO is confusing...lets here it.

I prefer our NZ Carina system to the QF system - which I find is a bit too user friendly (it does everything for you). The TG & MH systems I don't know much about having only used them at the gates, but they aren't so user friendly and TN/AF Gaetan is supposed to be very good once learnt.

I use fastair and CLF, fastair is great as you can easily add bag tags to each person after check in, with clf you would have to cancel no bag and pooled bag edits etc and then do it and with that you have to offload if someone decides they need a wheelchair after check in.

I do like fastair it is nice and easy  Smile clf is easy to use but yes it does have lots of annoying features like it doesnt offer to match VC edits etc as where fastair brings up your options etc.

"confusing" it's an euphemism.... ARCO looks like the MATRIX code... you can read it only if you are the elect one!!!

I agree, CODECO is great. Easy to use and you kind find out all kinds of info. Please enjoy while you can, because it will be gone in a few years as AF/KL will introduce a new check-in system.

what is your source for this? From someone I know at the sales department for (but not only) CODECO the future is far from sure yet....

most likely because you can do more with it, QF's systems doesn't let you decide too much (that's the way I read it)

I've only used the Open Skis system (FL, B6,...) and it really is great. Just the right amount of control in my opinion.

Ehhm, you mention "the future is far from sure" isn't that more or less the same as "will be gone in a few years"?

I know that AF/KL wish to have the same check-in system and that will be introduced in the near future (within a few years). I don't know if KL will keep selling the CODECO program to other airlines/handling agents if KL is not the user anymore.

That is indeed the main problem, one program.... KLM doesn't want to get rid of CODECO (for very good reasons), AF doesn't want to get rid of theirs. From what I hear there is a complete standstill at the moment.

I can't tell very much about CODECO if KLM doesn't use it anymore, but 'there is a sizable market'

During my (not too long) airport career I only used ARCO and GAETAN and I find the last one very easy to use and understand. ARCO is a little bit old, but still effective even though you can get the best from it only with a daily use. Anyway, I know that many cutes are very similar (eg. BA to QF/CI or LX to MH/TP). Could you name some of them and explain positive and negative aspects?
