You should be able to generate an activity report which can pull up that info.

Thanks WhyAich for the help. Got it done.

Oh, I can... I just happen to know that there are certain tricks that people *think* will work, but in reality don't help at all. I'm curious if this is one of those.

Obviously if those are always working for me, you can cross that of your list...

When you set up an itinerary on Sabre, end the reservation, and pull it back up again, the AA FACTS will generally list a date and time by which the itinerary must be ticketed or it will cancel automatically. What time zone are those warnings using?

Using the "new" version of WorldSpan the custom itinerary is printed out in very small font.  Help desk doesn't know how to change and "Ask Travelport" has no answers.  Does anyone know how to increase the font size when printing custom itineraries from the drop down box in the new WorldSpan?

From ASTA Email this morning:

Airlines are leading the way in changing how travel is sold. It’s called the New Distribution Capability (NDC), and it is changing how airline content, such as airfares, routes, and seat availability, reaches passengers through websites and travel agencies.

Anyone know or understand that?

Where can I learn about GDSs
« Reply #85 on: August 08, 2013, 11:59:48 AM »
I'd like to educate myself about GDSs systems (Amadeus, Sabre, Travelport etc.) and how they work. Is there a handbook/book I should be getting my hands on?

I'm not just looking for how they serve as the backend to OTAs (Online Travel Agencies), I want to educate myself on how their systems work and what APIs they have for booking travel.

Thank you for your thoughts/recommendations :)
