What is it?
Service /dc/seats/shop is used to search for seats in a new reservation based on flight information. This operation returns a Seat Map with available seats that may be purchased based on the provided passenger type. The service may also search for seats when a reservation already exists. In such case, a Seat Map with seats that are available for purchase in the existing reservations is returned.
How it works
The server does not store any state about the client session on the server side. Statelessness means that every HTTP request happens in complete isolation. When the client makes a HTTP request, it includes all information necessary for the server to fulfill that request. The server never relies on information from previous requests. As a result, stateless applications are easier to distribute across load-balanced servers and cache. The Ancillary service response may be returned:
- with prices
- with discounts - including tier level discounts
- without discounts.
