Re: However since Thai uses Amadeus you can check your itinerary using checkmytrip.com
Right in a sense, but not quite. Although TG
use Amadeus in their own offices to make bookings, they are not a full System User (TG are a Special Case !). For normal System Users, all bookings made in any system outside Amadeus are forwarded to Amadeus first, then to the airline's inventory system. TG
are an exception (the only other exception is Scandinavian and their 30-odd hosted airlines). Bookings on TG
made on external systems are routed direct to ROYAL (TG's Inventory system), and are not sent to Amadeus. Only if a TG
office wishes to look at the booking, can it be transferred to Amadeus.
Re the Abacus record locator - the GDS record locator is next to useless when dealing directly with the airline (the exception being the Amadeus record locator on Amadeus system user airlines) - always make sure the travel agent gives you the Airline Record Locator (which most airlines do return to most GDS's, pretty much instantaneously) - this is the one the airline agent needs to retrieve your real inventory booking. Very few Inventory systems are able to retrieve a booking by the GDS Record Locator.
When you look at checkmytrip.com, Airline Record Locators returned by carriers in your itinerary (or that carrier's hosting system), are provided in the display, up at the top, under the heading "Airline Reference".
