Informative Pricing

HE FQP

Informative pricing - general description:


Informative pricing allows you to price an itinerary, without first creating a PNR. This is especially
useful at times when you need to find the price for an itinerary, but you are not yet ready to make a
reservation. You can add options to your entry, or you can create a mask that can guide you to add
options. You can also calculate discount fares, including cumulative discounts.

A number of carriers do not participate in YY-fares. It is therefore no longer possible to use


/AYY in FQP entries for Norwegian domestic fares. Check routing for the YY fare first to find
out which airlines participate in the routing, and specify accordingly in the FQP entry.

Best Buy

HE FARE

Best buy - general description:


Best buy pricing enables you to price a PNR with the lowest fare for an itinerary that has already been
booked. The system proposes only those fares that are applicable to the itinerary, and the type of
passenger in the PNR. You can choose either to rebook to the lowest fare at the same time, or to first
check the lowest fare and then rebook.
Note:

If the PNR has been updated with FD-elements the system will take these elements into
account, provided that lower rates with same RBD for all passengers are found.

Note:

Please note that Best Buy is not capable of re-booking/re-pricing all kinds of itineraries, but is
only meant as an aid to maybe locating lower fares. It is important to read the fare notes
attached to each rate to be sure that the rate is applicable.

Note:

Best Buy is only capable of offering carrier unique fares if the airlines present in the itinerary
are combinable. In all other cases only YY-fares are offered.

Note:

It is recommended to use FXA rather than FXB as it gives you an opportunity to select which
fare to use before a rebooking is made

Overview of best buy commands:


9

FXA

Display a list of lower fares.

FXB

Rebook to the lowest fare, and create a TST.

Passenger type codes (PTC) and IATA discount codes:


You can use either PTCs or IATA discount codes when pricing an itinerary, issuing tickets or storing
FD-elements in the PNR.
An example:
To price an itinerary for a youth passenger, you can use one of the following commands:
HE PTC
- PTC .............................................................................FXP/RYTH
- IATA discount code.....................................................FXP/RZZ
GG FQT DIS
We strongly recommend that you use PTCs (passenger type codes) whenever possible, as they are
more precise. You can, for instance, specify the age of the passenger.
The PTC code can be found in the first lines of an encoded fare note. For most PTCs, the code
displayed in the fare note screen is the code that you enter when pricing the itinerary. However, the
following exceptions exist:
PTC code:

Definition:

PTC input code:

SRC
CLG
FAM
GTC
ITX
P<NN>
VUG

Senior Citizen
Clergy
Family member
Government child
Individual inclusive tour
Children charter
Visit another country adult

YCD
YCL
ACC
Y<NN> (specify age)
IIT
H<NN> (specify age)
VAC

Note:

Useful discount codes for Scandinavia are found in GGAIRSKFQDISC.

An example:

SRC in fare note, add pricing entry option .................../RYCD


Note:

You can price discounted fares by adding FD-elements to the PNR (see Discount codes in
PNR) or by adding options to the FXP-entry (see Pricing examples). Infants must be
entered into the name element.

Note.

Periodically new PTCs are created.

Itinerary pricing - discount codes in PNR:


Most discount codes may be added in an FD-element for each passenger, then FXP will price the
PNR directly. Alternatively discount options may be added to the FXP command. See Pricing
examples for FXP examples.

HE PTC

Examples of useful ATPCO PTC codes:

Note:

IATA/Amadeus discount codes - see GG FQT DIS.

Note:

When adding ATPCO discount codes for children (with age), the system will automatically
add (CHD) to name element, and an OSI YY 1CHD element.

Itinerary pricing - ticket types:


Carriers may impose surcharges and E-ticket restrictions in the fare rules. It is therefore necessary to
specify what type of ticket that will be issued to obtain the correct fare, including surcharges.
9

/ET

for electronic ticket

/PT

for paper ticket

/EP

for electronic and paper ticket

For more information about ticket type surcharges, see Paper/electronic ticket surcharge (Ticketing
and PTA chapter).

HE FARE

Default validating carrier selection:


To ensure that the correct YQ/YR surcharges are used, in accordance with the validating carrier (the
carrier whose ticket plate will be used) the following procedure is recommended:
1. Use the R,VC-option at pricing time, specifying the validating carrier. If no R,VC-option is
added, the system will apply the default selection.
Note: The TST will choose the carrier code used in the pricing command (the command is kept in the
TST) and the PNR will be updated with the appropriate FV-element.
Issue the ticket/e-ticket by defaulting to the FV-element in the PNR.
The above procedure will secure that the pricing will include correct YQ/YR surcharges for the
validating carrier when the ticket is issued, and that the ticket is issued on the same carrier as the one
selected at time of pricing.
Note:

However, if no FV-element has been added and no R,VC-xx has been used, the system
default will apply in both pricing and ticketing. The YQ/YR surcharges applied will
automatically match the default validating carrier. There are situations where you are not able
to, or not authorized to, issue the ticket on the default validating carrier. It is therefore not
recommended to use the system default in all situations (use the 2 steps described above).

Note:

Amadeus recommends that you do not price the PNR without validating carrier specified,
because the YQ/YR surcharges applicable to the default carrier will be used, and
consequently incorrect surcharges may be applied.

Manual Pricing

HE TST

Which information do you need before manual pricing:


If the system is unable to price an itinerary automatically, fares must be calculated manually and
entered into a TST.
Questions you need to ask the airline BEFORE you create a manual TST:
1. Is a fare to be shown on the ticket, or is no fare to be shown on the ticket (IT)?
2. If fare is to be shown on the ticket, which fare is to be shown? A published IATA/carrier fare
level, or the actual fare that the customer pays?
3. If no fare is to be shown on the ticket, does the airline require IT or BT ticketing?
4. Which fare basis is required?
5. Does the airline require a ticket designator?
6. Is the ticket valid only on flights/dates shown, and shall this be entered in the
NOT VALID BEFORE AND AFTER boxes of the ticket?
7. Or will the ticket show the validity according to the minimum and maximum stay
requirements?
8. Which rate, if any, of commission applies?
9. Does the airline allow payment by credit card for the selected fare?
10. Is there an applicable tour code?
11. Does the airline require a specific endorsement text?
When you have the answers to above questions, you can start creating a manual TST (see
Create TST). Remember to add an RM-element with the name of the contact person at the airline.
Note:

Please see Creating manual TST - net remit TICS/PAS, Creating manual TST - net
remit CTS, Creating manual TST - IT or Creating manual TST - BT for examples of the
different ticketing possibilities.

TST - Net remit, IT and BT

HE TST

Creating manual TST - net remit (published fare shown on ticket) TICS/PAS:
Ticket shows the published fare (there is a different net fare, and the customer pays a selling fare).
1. Price the PNR using FXP. If not possible to price with FXP, copy FQP image for the fare
required. Please note that you only need to enter fare basis, validity and endorsement if these
differ from the FXP or FQP.
2. Enter fare levels and tour code using:

FSN-netfare,S-sellingfare,T-tourcode
(Net Fare is your net amount, selling fare is the fare that the customer pays.)
3. If airline requires a ticket designator, enter both fare basis and designator,
e.g. TTI/BYM3MCD10
4. Enter validity, if different from FXP or FQP, using TTI/V.
5. Enter a rate of commission only if airline has given you a rate otherwise enter FM0. Please
note that the commission entered is irrelevant, as the commission you make is the difference
between the net fare and the selling fare.
6. If the airline allows the customer to pay by credit card, you may use FPCC as form of
payment, provided that the selling fare is higher than the net fare.
7. If the airline requires a specific endorsement, enter the endorsement using FE.
Example:
The ticket should show the published fare (the net level paid to airline is 5000, the fare the customer
pays is 6000, and the tour code is SUMMER). Airline requires the text NONENDORSABLE in the
endorsement box, and airline accepts credit card payment.

FSN-5000,S-6000,T-SUMMER
FM0
FENONENDORSABLE
FPCCCA5499830000000031/X1209
TTP
To change a net remit fare you can simply add the new net and selling levels using FSN-, FSS-.
Remember that the TST trust codes F and G will change to B if you modify the following fields:
origin/destination, sales indicator, FB, validity, baggage allowance, FM and FT.

Value Pricer

HE FXC

Value Pricer - general description:


Value Pricer is a value added product, which provides a tool to search for available low fares. It may
be used either with or without an active itinerary. The system will provide between 4 and 9
recommendations, depending on the setting for your office. The default is 9 recommendations, but
you can choose to have any number recommendations (from 4 up to 8). The recommendations
provided may be used to either create a new booking or rebook the existing booking. Multiple
passenger types are processed and seat is guaranteed at booking time.
Minimum elements are number of passengers, origin, destination and date, and these will be taken
from the itinerary automatically when a PNR is present.
9

Without a booked itinerary the system will give recommendations in ascending order for all
passengers with corresponding itineraries.

With a booked itinerary the system will first show the lowest available fare for the current
itinerary (price to beat) and then lower or equal fares in ascending order.

Value Pricer - overview of options (segment and/or itinerary level):


Some options may be used per segment only, and some may also be used for the entire itinerary:
