Is their any way to see how many seats are available per fare class, particularly on American. I need to book about 35 people and try to get them on the same plane with a good fare. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

With that amount of passengers, I'd guess that calling the airline is your only choice - I only know Amadeus and Galileo, and both don't give you any info beyond a maximum of 9 seats...

In travel agencies around the world...  Big grin

Actually, someone posted a link to an "Availability Tool" a while back, which does the same thing (obviously without letting you book anything) - I'll see if I can come up with the link to that again...

Ok, found it - TG992 posted this in a thread called Reservations Help Please a while back - the link to the tool itself is

http://www.stud.ntnu.no/~hartberg/ft/SabretoolSetup.exe

The program is, according to him, 1714kb in size - just install it, start it and enter the route you want.

If you're booking 35 people on one flight you may want to call AA's group department. Sabre also only allows up to nine people booked.

I agree with ASBOIRR --

Contact AA's group department or contact a travel agency and have them do the research for you. Most airlines do offer good group rates.

If you think you will be able to book 35 people by yourself....I guarantee you...you will go half nuts.  Smile

What kind of discounts would airlines normally give for this size group. We will be going AUS-SAN.

Thanks for the help so far!

Usually group rates are specially negotiated. There's no easy way to just say that they will charge you $xxx. Call the group desk, they will work with you to find space, and negotite a good price.

Then just sit back, enjoy the MRTC, and have a $5 cocktail.

Group rates are no lower than published rates, for your info. Most of the time it's more EXPENSIVE because they don't have 35 seats in the "cheaper" buckets.

Leskova, I accessed the site and it seems that you need to send an e-mail to the guy who will then authorise you to download the Availability Tool. Is that correct? What credentials do you need to qualify?
