Hello everyone. I just kinda had a quick question. I was wondering about, when an airline, say Delta, is unable for some reason to go to get you on a flight and puts you on another airline, say, AirTran, does AirTran get paid for that passenger coming over to them? Or does AirTran do it for free? I always thought that maybe the original airline transfers the fare paid by the passenger over to the other airline. Thanks!

Right -- a FIM is just a way to issue a ticket per rule 240. The other ways that come to mind are hand-writing INVOL 240 on the face of the ticket along with any other necessary changes and using a computer system to do an INVOL exchange.

Also the price that Airtran would recieve based upon this case could vary wildly. Fim settlement percentages are based upon the highest full fare offered and range from 10percent to 50 percent depending on the bilateral that carrier has with the other. Most FIM rates are 10-25 percent of full fare.
Rule 120.20 is based upon face value of the ticket. Some carriers have agreements to automatically waive rules printed on the ticket ie valid DL only and still others have agreed to accept each others free FF tickets, bulk rate non published fare tickets, and other "valueless" tickets as rule 120.20. While this is still somewhat rare, airlines that work closely often use this to simplify the customer service procedure.

Now with all of this Electronic Ticketing. I know let say AA sends someone from them to us (NW). AA will send us controll of their Eletronic Ticket and we just check them in like a regular Passenger. I know if I rebook someone to another Carrier I try to rebook the passenger on CO this way I can just issue them their boarding pass to them.

Do you have to do anything to get the ticket associated with the record in your system? This has been the stumbling block for us in implementing IET invol reroutes locally. Unfortunately, the habit of simply printing coupons to paper seems to die hard. I'm trying to compile step-by-step directions for each airline that serves our airport -- of which NW is one (they also ground handle CO). They have new-style NEC flat panel computers if it makes a difference. Haven't tried it yet since TZ doesn't have an IET agreement with NW, but that can't be far off.
