Non-rev On LH/BA To SFO. Any Help?

Wed Sep 01, 2004 3:26 pm

Hi all !!

I'd like to go to SFO as non-reving on sept 16th.

I have two options at this time:

- MUC-SFO with LH 458, but it seems quite full according to a GDS.
- LHR-SFO with one of the two BA flights leaving that day (BA285/287).

So can someone help me with the booking figures for LH or BA ?

Another question: Is there any risk of strikes or cancellations as far as BA is concerned ?

Many many thx in advance for the kind help !!!

Cheers,

BA285/16SEP looks pretty good down the back, though the front is filling up.
BA287/16SPE looks OK down the back too, and up front.

LH458/16SEP is showing zeroes down the back, but shows open up front.

GDS = Global Distributions System = Amadeus, Sabre, Worldspan, Abacus etc
CRS = Computreised Reservation System = all the above plus all airline Res systems eg. PARS, SHARES, Gabriel etc. A GDS is a CRS with travel agents attached, basically.
