GDS Users AMADEUS, SABRE, GALILEO, WORLDSPAN

I thought I would start a thread for anyone who uses a GDS where questions, tips, and the like can be posted. Maybe we can get answers quicker then calling the helpdesk or share some tricks etc...

Maybe we can help people who have questions that we can answer because of the access we have......

Oh, and I guess I will introduce myself as an Amadeus user.

A lot depends on the contract you can get, direct connect, etc....

They are all the same to me though I do like Trip case and the way virtuallythere prepares an itinerary for printing as opposed to checkmytrip.

Now Amadeus and Sabre needs something like that. Do you have all the tools and options available to you on the app as you would on a desktop?

If there is one seat in a lower class of service and one in a higher class can both passengers be on the same PNR?

I believe that would be called a non homogeneous PNR. I never booked one but I believe it can be done depending on the level of access you have and I think you will also have to manually price it out.
