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 :)

In laymans terms, it allows someone on a website to interact with a GDS (IE OTAs)

Anyone use SPRK reservation system?

It looks really easy to use and would require minimal training for new agents.

I have been working in Amadeus for a while and just switched to Sabre. Having some problems with formats.

In Amadeus I could find flights that have availaibility in a partucular class in multiple airlines (alliances like dl,kl,af) in one command
AN14DECOKCDXB/ADL/CT/B1
Where DL is the airline, T is the class and B1 is one seat availability

Is there anything similar in Sabre?

Also I am having diffuclty finding availability for multiple airlines
AN13DECOKCDXB/Adl,kl,af - in Amadeus would give me all the schedules for combinations of all these 3 airlines

Anything similar in sabre?

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Ram
