TK coming down on over bookings, 500€ ADM, and its coming fast

500€ total? Officially, their site says the penalty is per pax, per segment. Is that part being enforced?

lol, i guess the ukrainians dont know whats going on at home

Those Ukrainians...

This is what I wrote them.. But they won't budge

Political situation is not fully normal.
Was wondering, as these group of clients had a trip to Crimea and Ukraine, and due to the situation we read in our papers, and see online, (maybe it’s different there), it didn’t look the best. And the US State department has issued a travel warning re travel to Ukraine http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/alertswarnings/ukraine-travel-warning.html and Aeroflot had given a full refund, and all other Airlines provide waiver etc., and only Ukraine Intl isn’t providing anything.

Anyone else noticed the pricing mistake on aa/us lga-phl-tlv roundtrip pricing at 1049.32 mid summer? Base of 949.00 and 100.32 taxes. Booked a few in the 10 minutes that I knew about it, and then it went back up to 1655.32.

They revised their policy yesterday to 500 Euro per pax, not per segment

Lemme get this straight: instead of, say, NYC-CDG-TLV, you sold NYC-CDG, then searched CDG-TLV and sold it, and got an ADM for that?

They call it married segment abuse.

 No impact on Delta and Travelport’s existing Global Distribution Systems agreement which was previously renewed in 2013.

Looks like just an investment

I love Delta. They are brilliant.

Is it better to book DL pax on Worldspan? Can you bundle in preferred seating, etc.

And It's awesome now that we can do the preferred seating on El Al ourselves at time of purchase. I am sick of getting yelled at by LY Agents. :-)
