Worldspan - Single Pricing: Confirmed load dates! Eliminate PTC Fare Types in Pricing


03.11.2011

Overview PA 1213 - version 02

Issue History: Version 01 – Issued 13-Jul-11
Reason For Issuing version 02: Confirmed load dates

Currently, when a user includes a Fare Type modifier of GV, GP, ML, MS, or IT in a pricing or shopping request, and the system returns an applicable fare based on one of these fare types, the fare quote includes the following error:

ER131 - SPECIFIC PTC NEEDED - CHECK FARE RULE

Since the system requires the user to input a valid Passenger Type Code (PTC) to price one of these fare types, the input to only include the Fare Type is being eliminated.

The same error response that currently exists when an invalid Fare Type is included in the shopping or pricing request will be returned.

The system will return a fare when the user inputs the appropriate PTC in the pricing or shopping request.

Note: Fare Types NL, EX,and SR, which do not return this error response along with the fare quote are not being eliminated.

Customer Benefit

For those fares quotes that are based on a specific Passenger Type Code, the pricing or shopping format including the PTC will be the only applicable input.
