FAQ

  • How do I request for additional availability (1*) in the OTA_AirAvailLLSRQ service?
    • AdditionalAvailability is the indicator equivalent to the Sabre host command: 1*.
  • What is the OnTimeInd information returned by the OTA_AirAvailLLSRQ service?
    • The OnTimeInd is better known as the DOT Dependability Code of a flight (more information in Format Finder). The code is mandatory only for flights within the USA on US carriers. This information is not returned if not applicable to the specific flight.
  • What happens when I use Direct Access in the OTA_AirAvailLLSRQ service?
    • When you request availability using Direct Access you actually enter that carrier’s system to see their current availability. Availability, seat maps, and schedule information are returned to Sabre directly from the carrier’s database.
