What Was I Doing?

Sun Apr 18, 2004 1:41 am

Last year I got a job at a travel agency in my home town and I was working in the Amadeus Reservation system and I would like to know what I was doing. This is what I use to do there for 4 hrs at a time:
SSMX968Q12AUGpk1/Amx
That was one flight segment. I use to take the agent cupons and enter peoples reservations. Anyone who has an Idea about what this is it would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry, but I'm not sure what you mean by "What was I doing"? Do you really mean......You do not know what you were doing???

Well in that case, you were doing something with the Mexicana 968, in Q class, on 12th Aug, i reckon... But I'm sure you knew that already, didn't you?!

Unfortunately i don't know the Amadeus system really - I only use the GUIDE check-in & LH Weight & Balance systems....

SSMX968Q12AUGpk1/Amx

SS = Sell Seat
MX968 = Flight Number
Q = Booking Class
12AUG = Flight Date
PK = passive booking, confirmed seat
1 = 1 seat
AMX = not sure, but usually you enter the Filekey/PNR of the airline here - so I guess that the flights were booked directly through MX

In other words: you were preparing bookings that were not made directly at your office for ticketing at your office, something that is done through passive segments (a segment that represents an active segment that is booked in another system and/or in another office) - a passive segment does not reduce the availability inventory of the flight by the number of seats booked, because it's passive... the active segment (the real segment) already took the seat out of the inventory.

Hope I explained that in a somewhat understandable way...
