Galileo - Availability Preferred Airport Connection Processing


12.11.2011

Overview PA 1328 - version 01

Today, if a traveler is to connect through a specific airport but doesn’t know what other connection cities might be required to build the itinerary, the user must either guess and/or display a dynamic routing display to determine the other connection cities to be used by the availability system.

Galileo availability will now build single connections using the city specified in the availability option followed by double connections which also include the connection city specified in addition to connection cities dynamically supplied by the system.

There are no changes to availability request options for specifying a single connection. Availability results will be changed whenever the option to search for single connection flights is used as follows:

Note: No other availability request/response options will be changed.
