Use the following XML request snippet to request only non-stop flights.
Bargain Finder Max returns responses as total trips.
Bargain Finder Max supports a maximum of 8 segments even though the schema, based on the OTA standard, allows an input of 10 segments.
You can only request results for 50, 100, or 200 options based on the tier you have chosen. You can request equal or lower tier values; however, you cannot request a number greater than the tier you are signed up for. If you do want to request a lower value than your tier, you will need to send a specific RequestType value in the request XML.
There are several reasons why you might receive this error message. One example is if you have MaxStopsQuantity="x" in your request. This qualifier specifies that you want itinerary options that have exactly x stops. If your market does not support service for that number of stops, you will receive the error message. Remove this qualifier and you can receive options.
Air shopping products do not currently support this functionality.
The search scope of the alternate dates request is much wider than the fixed date request. The shopping service cannot always perform the same depth of search for the alternate date as it does for the fixed date without impacting the response time. We continue to fine tune the quality of response for alternate dates to close the gap between alternate and fixed date searches while still maintaining an acceptable response time.
