Glossary of Terms
The terms in the following list are used in reference materials for the ATPCO Automated Rules system. Each term is explained in greater detail in other manuals. Area The airline industry divides the world into three areas, also known as Traffic Conferences (TC): • • • Note: Area 1: Western Hemisphere Area 2: Europe, Africa, Middle East Area 3: Asia, Pacific

The terms Area and Traffic Conference are used interchangeably. The ability for a CRS to provide eligible fares for a passenger’s itinerary by programmatically processing the data coded in the rules and footnotes. An automated process used to price a ticket without human intervention. A unit of work containing a group of transactions that are entered and released to the file, used for describing a set of instructions that are being implemented. Every batch is identified by a 2character alphanumeric code (based on batch ID of user) plus a control number assigned by the system. One or two letters functioning as an inventory control code. Also called the Reservation Booking Designator (RBD) or prime booking code, it specifies the class of service in which to book a traveler. A portion of a field in an electronic database. Owner or service provider identified by a standard industry alphanumeric code for each airline. The structure within the Rules system designed to identify various kinds of restrictive information regarding a fare. Restrictions are listed in the Automated Rules section of the database and are sorted by various categories of application such as day/time, season of travel, and flight numbers. Customer Information Control System. A database of rules and fares information used for automated pricing. Computer reservation system (for example, Amadeus, Galileo, Sabre, or SITA). Used by travel agents and others throughout the world. These systems receive coded fare data (which will price electronically) from ATPCO and transmit it to their customers. The technical application of an electronic product. Two cities on a travel itinerary (city pairs). Control file (G30): a system that controls the number and type of records released to each subscriber; that is, the information may be requested by area, date, market, etc.

domestic

Term used when a country’s domestic fares are for travel wholly within that country. At ATPCO, it usually refers to US and CA fares. Introduced in 1999, this is a user-friendly interface for the Bits and Bytes product that is available via the Internet for updating fare information. Occurs when a change is made, but never filed in GFS. When another change is made, the unfiled segment becomes embedded and neither can be filed nor used for autopricing. Not only the amount a passenger pays, it also contains the conditions for travel at this amount (that is, the rules and/or restrictions that must be satisfied in order to qualify for a specific fare). Together, fares and rules form an infrastructure used for autopricing (identifying a fare electronically). A fare has 13 components, including tariff, carrier, rule, market, and amount. Also called fare basis, it contains three parts: fare class code, explanation text, and booking code. Based on industry standards, the fare class code is an 8-character code that signals fare parameters in an abbreviated form. The fare class also serves as a bridge between the fare and the rule provisions, thus enabling a fare to price automatically. It is usually assigned by the carrier. It usually indicates class of service and may also indicate basic ticketing requirements a passenger must meet to qualify for a given fare, such as day, season, reservation/payment requirements, and fare type. A method of identifying multiple fare classes within a single entry. In the Category ID, the Fare Class field can be coded with a hyphen to mean "all fare classes that contain these characters." For example, BE-70 means "all BE70-type fares," such as BEX70 and BE1X70. It does not mean BE170. The record that contains the same information that is found in a fare class application. It specifies booking codes, fare type, ticketing codes, passenger type, season type, and day type. Also known as Record 1 in the Automated Rules product.

FAREMANAGER

Fare Class Provides all directory-level fare construction in one unit so that it is not necessary to look up fares in the directory. Introduced in 1999, FAREMANAGER Fare Class may be used to update the fare class application record (Record 1) easily. A rule that states the conditions of travel for specific fare classes. As used in this document, the term can refer to rules governing published fares (grouped by categories) or to fares that are contained in the text of a rule (fare-by-rule). The term is used to differentiate between this type of rule and a governing rule. A rule has three components: fare class code, booking code, and category restrictions. A symbolic identification of the characteristics of a fare class, this term provides a way to group similar types of fares. It is directly

connected to the rule provisions. (For example, “Instant purchase, nonrefundable” fares will have Category 5 restrictions coded, which state those requirements, and penalty descriptions in Category 16.) Fare Type Matrix field filed Matrix list of fare types used to define fare type codes—valuable in autopricing. The area containing certain data in an electronic database. A specific area on a screen where data can be entered by the user. A status assigned by the system to records that have been filed through GFS—the only records that can be viewed by other carriers in the inquiry mode. Once filed, records are also sent in the next transmission of subscriptions. Used along with categories to further restrict a fare, it usually contains travel dates, sales dates, or other special conditions. An advantage of coding restrictions in a footnote rather than a rule is that a footnote may reside in any fare within its carrier/tariff. Any number 1–99 and any letter other than F and T may be assigned to the footnote. (F and T are reserved to mean travel must be FROM/TO the first city shown in a given market when they are coded in Category 23.) The last point of departure and first point of arrival within a Geographic Locale as specified below: (Note there is an implied hierarchy in the following descriptions.) When traveling between areas (1, 2, or 3) the last point of departure and first point of arrival in that area. When traveling between zones within an area, the last point of departure and first point of arrival in that zone. When traveling between countries within a zone, the last point of departure in one country and the first point arrival in another country. GDS general rule GFS Global distribution systems. Companies that use ATPCO products to provide fare information to airlines and other customers. Each rules tariff in the system has a general rule record that specifies the governing rule number for each category. Government Filing System. The electronic system for combining fare and rule data so that it can be released to subscribers, who make it available to customers (along with its restrictions). Also used to file new fare data with the US Department of Transportation and ten other governments that require approval of new fares regarding their countries. Filing Advice Number of a batch (assigned by the system) that has been submitted through GFS; used for controlling and tracking purposes. Using GFS, thirteen governments (United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, France, Mexico, Panama, Hong Kong, Brazil, Brunei, and Cayman Islands) require

they do not have to state provisions for every category for every fare rule. Also. It is very important to understand the impact of general rules in the automated quote process.Rules Coding Resource General rules A carrier’s general rule applies whenever coding is absent in a category. but they reside in different parts of the ATPCO system. Conditions that govern fares are found in the applicable fare rule. This section presents information on the shaded area. Automated general rules are reflections of carriers’ paper general rules in filed tariffs and carriers’ requests in AllFares tariffs. 33 . Overview of general rules Electronic fare rules appear in a standardized format and may contain any or all of the categories of information. The analyst knows to check the carrier’s general rule before filing a fare rule so that the carrier’s intent will be expressed. These general rule provisions will apply unless data coded in the category overrides them. electronic general rules. Automated general rules are reflections of a carrier’s paper general rules in filed tariffs and carrier’s requests in AllFares tariffs. It must be remembered that all of these types reflect the same information. When a carrier designs a general rule. or are found only on paper. additional provisions may be found in the carrier’s general rules. An automated general rule that is coded for a category will always apply unless something is coded in a category of a fare rule to override it. and automated general rules. There are three types of general rules at ATPCO: paper general rules. The following diagram illustrates the relationship between all three types of general rules.

The automated general rule provisions will override the system assumption and automatically apply when those categories are blank. the fare rules will not automatically apply the general rules provisions. if a child (CNN) is always given a 67% discount. The difference is that they apply to all the existing rules within each tariff to which a general rule is attached. but it affects the autopricing whenever a fare in that tariff is validated. for the fare quote systems to apply an automated general rule. it is essential to have a link between the general tariff and the tariff for which it will be used in validating a fare. Coding a general rule avoids the necessity for the carriers to instruct or code the same provisions in certain categories in each of their rules. This link is Record 0. Conversely. then all IPRA fare rules will automatically point to the provisions in that Category 12. they appear in text just like regular category data. Because automated general rules reside in the Automated Rules system. 35 . So. the IPRA Record 0 is coded to point all IPRA rules to IPRG/0064/Category 12. For example. The following example illustrates the benefit of having automated general rules. (08) (12) (19) The Role of Record 0 Automated general rules are coded in the Automated Rules system in different.

in discount categories when the carrier wishes to state “No Discount. An analyst should always check for a general rule in each category being coded. If General Rule provisions are coded.Rules Coding Resource Coding that affects a category’s general rule The fields on the Sequence List screen determine what information to apply and how to match or reject the information found in the fare rule. For example. If there is a match to this alternate general rule information. this statement indicates that the system assumption for both the fare rule and the general rule should be applied. However. When a carrier has a general rule for a particular category. and the general rule. since the instructed provisions for a new fare may already be coded in the carrier’s general rule. the system assumption will not be applied. Knowing the details listed in a general rule saves coding time. If the Sequence List (Record 2) in a fare rule specifies an Alternate General Rule (meaning a source tariff and rule need to be examined). many carriers have a general rule that stipulates certain provisions in a category are to apply whenever a rule appears in the tariff in which the general rule is coded. Note: Additional information regarding the manipulation of general rules for a category appears in module B of the book on Challenging Categories. If the Sequence List (Record 2) in a fare rule states Category Not Applicable. footnote. it is stored in Record 0 and will apply automatically unless other restrictions are coded in the applicable category that will override the general rule. that data would apply. the category system assumption would then apply. Whether or not the carrier has a general rule regarding category provisions will affect how those categories are coded. 40 .” that information would be coded in one of the following ways. It is important to check the carrier’s General Rule provisions (Record 0) to see if Category restrictions exist. the provisions in that category do not apply. this information should apply in place of any information stated in the General Rule for this carrier/tariff. Manipulating automated general rules The system assumption for most categories states that when any of these categories are absent or not applicable. If there is no match.

General Rule Hard Code: SRC-No Discount Using general rules allows the carriers to code preferred provisions only once in a tariff— rather than coding the same provisions in each of several rules. hard code to negate those discounts which are not to be applied. and the system assumption for the category will apply instead. When the carrier wishes to specify different discounts than those that appear in the general rule for this or any other tariff.” Then those with a PTC of SRC would not receive a discount. However. those provisions are coded and the General Rule is negated. Question 3: Should the system assumption of the category apply instead of the general rule? In this circumstance. In this case the carriers must answer the following questions in order to determine how the general rule for that category is to be addressed: • Question 1: Are the new provisions to be applied in addition to the general rule which has already been coded? When both are to be applied (an option that is available in Categories 12. the analyst codes the new provisions and the CRS will apply those plus all applicable general rule provisions. and all other discounts from the general rule will apply. YTH and DIS in its general rule but does not want a discount for senior citizens in the rule being coded. Question 2: Are the new provisions to replace the general rule? In this circumstance. sometimes those preferred provisions must be altered in individual rules within that tariff. if a carrier has discounts in Category 22 for SRC. NOT APL is coded so that the general rule will not apply. the analyst has the option of hard coding “SRC-No Discount. For example. 15 and 16). • • 41 .Rules Coding Resource General Rule No General Rule General Rule Coding Blank N/Provisions coded Reason System assumption for discount categories is no discount. but the general rule allowing discounts for youth and disabled would still apply.

Carrier would code one month maximum stay in Category 7 and use TSIs 01/05. Note: Normal fares occasionally follow IATA Standard Condition Resolution. Categories 6 and 7. instead it uses TSIs 01/05 and applies Reso 100 guidelines for the maximum stay using TSIs 01/05. Carrier 00 wants a two-day minimum stay and also a three-month maximum stay for its special fares. Carrier ZZ does not want to use TSIs 48/36 from Reso 100 in Category 6. Examples • All • Carrier XX wants to allow one month maximum stay for its special fares. but they use Reso 101. The purpose of Reso 100 is to serve as a guide when coding all categories in rules that follow IATA conventions. Resolution 100 is the Resolution of Standard Conditions mandated by IATA to be used as a guide when coding rules in special fares. for example. The same twenty-nine (29) standard paragraphs are used both in Resolutions 101 and 100. that is. Carrier XX follows Reso 100 with no exceptions. AllFares except those to or from US/CA. The carrier may also choose to create its own guidelines. Reso 100 informs the analyst of the TSIs that are most commonly used in the area of the world being coded. each use two TSIs to describe how to measure the minimum and maximum stays. • Some • • None • 50 . except as specifically instructed by a carrier. That information would be placed in a carrier’s cue sheet. Carrier 00 does not want to follow Reso 100 for either its minimum or maximum stay restrictions. It uses TSIs 01/05 for Category 6 and 01/52 for Category 7. Carriers have the option of applying all. thus making it easier for the reader to compare them. Carrier ZZ wants a two-day minimum stay and also a three month maximum stay for its special fares. specific to its needs. as well as in all normal and special fares resolutions (categories). Using Reso 100 provides conformity for the fares for all the carriers in one part of the world.
