The Check-In Process


The purpose of the Check-in tab on the menu bar is to check-in passengers for a flight using different criteria such as: Passenger name Class of service Boardpoint only, and specific seat request Boardpoint and offpoint Future date within the check-in period Group code Different surnames and request specific seats By line numbers from a similar name list or passenger list Revenue standby passenger using alternate space

Features used during the check-in process


Seat Request

If you request a specific seat in the initial check-in, the seat characteristics (aisle or nonsmoking) are also requested for downline seat assignments. If you do not request a seat in the initial check-in, a generic seat is requested in the flight legs default seat zone. If you are checking in more than one passenger, all passengers must have the same type of seat request (all specific or all generic). If you are checking in a passenger with pre-reserved seats, the pre-reserved seat takes precedence over seat requests included in the initial check-in. If a requested seat cannot be accommodated, a seat map is displayed. You can request another seat, split the party, unblock and assign the original seat requested, or place the passenger on the priority list.

Sabre Airline Solutions Training Documentation 21 November 2011

Objectives Confidential and Proprietary Sabre Airline Solutions

Boardpoint / Off point codes

Check thru to the passengers final destination. If you include the boardpoint and offpoint codes, the passenger is checked in to the specified destination only.

Passenger Edits

You can enter any passenger edit from a list of similar names, or from a passenger list display

Priority Classification Code

Priority classification is required when you are checking in positive space or non-revenue space available passengers. Otherwise, Sabre returns an error message and terminates the check-in. The maximum number of characters for priority code is five. You can indicate a thru (through) passenger by placing a T in the last character of the priority code. For example, D2T for a D2 through passenger The flights priority classification restrictions determine if a passenger is placed directly on the priority list or if seat assignment is first attempted and a boarding pass is issued If the positive space classification code is designated in the PNR, the classification may not change during the check-in process If the passenger holds alternate space, you must include the flight number of the original reservation in the check-in entry. This will update the PNR with the appropriate action at post-departure

Seniority Date

If your carrier chooses to require a seniority date for processing non-revenue passengers, a seniority date must be entered with the priority classification code. Use the following guidelines when entering the seniority date: o o o o Year only (YY). The month defaults to January and the day of the month defaults to one (1). Month, and Year (MMMYY). The day defaults to one (1). Date, Month, and Year (DDMMMYY) Length of Service (MMYY)

Upgrade

There are two ways to upgrade a passenger: o Upgrade a passengers class of service by inputting the flight number, current seat number and new class of service. If accommodation cannot be completed in the class requested, a seat map is displayed with an error message. You must then select a seat from the seat map The passenger can be placed on the priority list for an upgrade using a specific priority code that will be processed if the seat is available in the desired class of service

Frequent Traveler Number

A frequent traveler number may be entered as an edit code

Multiple Passengers

If you are checking in multiple passengers, the following guidelines are applicable: o o o All passengers must have the same flight destination and be in the same cabin All passengers must be eligible for accommodation, or all must be placed on the priority list All passengers must request either all generic or all specific seats

Placing Passengers on a Priority List

Passengers are placed on the priority list based on the booked or meal-listed class of service in their PNR, unless a change in the class of service is requested If the passenger is placed on the priority list for a boardpoint, no action is taken on other board points in the itinerary until they are accommodated If the boardpoint requires a standby boarding pass for security reasons, one is issued for the passenger If a specific seat is requested and the agent has the proper authority, an override of the seat blocks may be done You can check-in passengers as a group, even though booked separately, provided that the number of names entered or selected satisfies the number in party being checked-in.

Sabre Airline Solutions Training Documentation 21 November 2011

NO REC Passenger

A passenger is defined as NO-REC when a booking record cannot be found for the flight they are checking in. You can place a NO-REC passenger on the priority list in by using the Create Record and Check-in command pop-up window.

Passenger Accommodation Process

The accommodation process includes determining the seat request, assigning a seat and/or placing the passenger on the priority list, issuing the boarding pass, and updating passenger counts and flight information. After completing the accommodation process at the boardpoint, validation and accommodation of the passengers next downline flight is processed. If the next downline flight is on another carrier with whom an EDIFACT agreement exists, EDIFACT is activated through check-in.

Boarding Pass Issuance and Information

When a passenger is checked in, seats are assigned and boarding passes are issued Each passenger can have single or multiple boarding passes Multiple boarding passes are issued when: o o There is a change of aircraft for the flight segment A change in seat assignment between flight legs is necessary

Passenger name, flight segment, and flight leg information are retrieved from the PNR If the flight is being checked in as open seating, no-seat-boarding passes are issued Information remarks appear on boarding passes and can contain one of the following items: Printed if the seat is on an exit row Printed on the boarding pass if the passenger is a thru passenger at the change of gauge city

Baggage

There are three baggage options your carrier may select to use. The ASA (Airline Serving Airport) table for each airport specifies the default baggage requirement for that airport. You can change the option for a particular flight and date, but you must do so before any passenger checks in on that flight. Once checkin has begun on a flight, you may not change the baggage requirement. The options are: Pieces only P Pieces and Weight of checked bags PW Pieces and Weight of checked bags as well as Carry-on weight PWC

Based on your carriers default, the necessary options for baggage will automatically display when you check-in.
Note

The maximum number of bags checked per passenger is 10. Upon request for activation, you may increase the limit of bags per passenger to 99.

Excess Baggage

The Automated Excess Baggage mask pops up when the baggage you check-in exceeds the free baggage allowance, as determined by your airline. Upon collection of the excess baggage fee, check-in continues successfully. If your airline prefers that the check-in personnel not be involved in collection of fees, you can select to not use the Automated Excess Baggage mask. You may request activation of an alternative functionality that would trigger the system to send a prompt to alert the check-in agent when the passenger has gone over the free baggage allotment. The prompt will provide the agent the possibility to either verify the baggage amounts or to accept the amounts that have been entered. In the event that the amounts entered did exceed the free allotment, the passenger would need to show proof of payment before check-in can continue. This alternative functionality has the advantage of freeing the check-in personnel from collecting fees. For activation, please contact Customer Care.

Ticket Search at Time of Check-in


At time of check-in, ticket collection must occur whether paper or electronic tickets are involved. When the system is unable to locate a ticket for the passenger, the response depends upon the airlines settings: The system automatically issues a coupon required boarding pass. -OR If TKT Edit functionality is active for the airline, the system displays the following pop-up window:

Indicate the action you want to take. If you select Search for VCR, provide the ticket number if known. Contact the Sabre Reservations help desk for information on activating the TKT Edit functionality.

SSR Facts and SabreSonic Check-In airport check-in system

Carriers may choose to activate the ability to pass free text data from an SSR to the SabreSonic CheckIn airport check-in system as related data. Free text entered into a PNR with applicable SSR codes will be carried into SabreSonic Check-In, to be accessible on SabreSonic Check-In secondary passenger displays such as: List of SSR Codes List by Specific SSR Code List by Name Passenger Detail display

To activate this free text option, authorized airline personnel may contact Customer Care. The SabreSonic Check-In database will store free text data on SSR codes such as:

Add Passive Segment to a PNR for the Purpose of Checking Bags


There may be times when a passenger holds multiple reservations to travel from origin to destination. In one reservation the passenger is traveling on your airline, and in a separate reservation, he continues to his final destination on another airline. At the check-in counter at departure, the bag will check automatically to the destination that is in the first reservation. If you wish to check the bag to the final destination on the other carrier, you need to add a passive segment into the first reservation and then check-in the passenger with the bag. Your airline must have a baggage agreement with the other carrier for a successful through check of the baggage.

How ESV (Enhanced Synchronization of VCRs) works with a DS segment


When the system adds the DS segment to the PNR, it will cause the PNR to go out of sync and you would usually need to do an exchange to put the PNR back into sync. If your airline uses ESV, you have two options to work with. Option 1 Use the edit code IR (Irregular Operations) o If the DS segment is not in the ESV table as an exception rule, when the passengers original flight passenger list is displayed with that passengers name, you need to add the IR edit code to the passenger. Select the reason for the IR code and add it to the IR window. The IR edit will cause the system to ignore the PNR going out of sync and will allow you to check-in the passenger to the priority list of the earlier flight.

Option 2- Add the DS segment to the ESV table as an exception o If the DS segment is in the ESV table as an exception rule, then the system will automatically bypass the need for the IR edit code and check the passenger into the priority list of the earlier flight, and leave the VCR in sync.

Note

For more information on ESV please see the module SabreSonic Check-In tables and SabreSonic Check-In Enhanced Synchronized VCR.

Without the possibility of an IR edit and the ESV exception table, the addition of the DS segment to a PNR will necessitate an exchange before you can proceed with checking the passenger in to the priority list of the earlier flight.

EDIFACT (Shift + F8)


This section applies to Sabre hosted airlines that use EDIFACT Through Check-In (ETCI).

Overview EDIFACT / EDIFACT Through Check-In (ETCI) What is EDIFACT?


EDIFACT is the acronym for = Electronic Data Interchange For Administration, Commerce, and Transportation EDIFACT communications are IATA-sanctioned, specifically formatted data transmissions between computer reservations systems. Airlines who have partnership with each other can exchange information electronically, using EDIFACT messages.

What is EDIFACT Through Check-in?


EDIFACT Through Check-In (or ETCI) is a product that allows you to interactively initiate check-in related functions in the Sabre system for a connecting flight on a partner airline, booked in the other airlines system. Agents of a partner airline can also interactively perform check-in related functions for connecting flights on your airline, while remaining in their system. Partner airlines can be Sabre or non Sabre carriers. The EDIFACT functions you can use in the SabreSonic Check-In system allow you to process passengers whose itineraries include travel on your airline and other airlines with whom you have an EDIFACT agreement.

When to Use EDIFACT (Shift + F8) Functions


Complete all EDIFACT check-in using the normal procedures on the label Check-In (Shift + F1), making sure the option Check-In to Final Destination is checked.

When the above option is checked, the system performs check-in for your flight as well as for your EDIFACT partners downline flight.
Note

Use the EDIFACT (Shift + F8) function ONLY if the check in does not process for the EDIFACT partner. The EDIFACT functions in Interact are intended to be a secondary function only.

Watchlist Clearance
There may be times you will get a system response upon checking in which says that the check-in is not permitted or inhibited. The reason is that behind the scenes, the system is matching the passengers name to names on the Watchlist . Please follow your airlines internal business processes when performing watchlist clearance.

A supervisor or agent with the EPR keyword SERCLR has the authority to clear the passenger from the watchlist.
Note

Should one person in a group PNR receive the watchlist response, you cannot check-in anybody else of the group until the watchlist clearance has been approved.

Below is a list of example system responses:


CHECK-IN INHIBITED CONTACT AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL FOR VERIFICATION

CHECKIN NOT PERMITTED-CONTACT SUPVSR FOR VERIFICATION

CHECK-IN INHIBITED CONTACT AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL FOR VERIFICATION

THROUGH CHECK-IN FAILED ON YY CHECK-IN INHIBITED CONTACT AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL FOR VERIFICATION
Note

YY is the two-letter code of the airline

PASSENGER STATUS CONFLICT CHECKIN FAILED

Additional Information
The Watchlist check is performed not only at check-in, but also at Boarding time. This second check facilitates flagging a passenger whose name was added to the Watchlist after the initial successful check-in. If a passenger is placed on the Watchlist after having received a boarding pass, you will not be able to change the seat for that passenger. When any bag issuance or check-in results in the Inhibited response, a message is placed on queue RSXW. The person working the queue can remove the message manually.

Follow these steps to clear a passenger from the Watchlist.
