In certain circumstances, the full number of options will not be returned. Reasons vary, such as no service available or no applicable fares. In these situations, no responses will be returned for those dates or date pairs.

 

ClosedWhy are there different numbers of options per day returned for a different PCC? Are there different calendar shopping configurations based on PCCs?

There are not different calendar shopping configurations based on the PCC. However, each search is different, and the results may vary based on factors such as: service available, applicable fares (including PCC-specific or private fares), and point-of-sale.

 

ClosedIs there a difference in the numbers of options returned for Calendar Shopping based on the 50, 100, or 200 tiers?

No. The Bargain Finder Max 50, 100, 200 option tier is completely separate from the Calendar Shopping (Alternate date) search.

 

ClosedHow can I send calendar shopping plus/minus one or three requests?

See the Bargain Finder Max_ADRQ_V1-3-1.Design.XML document available on the developer resource center (DRC).
