Book from Air Availability


The Book from Air Availability API is used to short sell direct access airline flight segments from an air availability response. You can also specify a married connection from a successful, direct access-based Air Availability response, or request with multiple connections/booking classes.

Please note that an OTA_AirAvailLLSRQ message where direct access is specified must be executed prior to calling ShortSellLLSRQ.
