Do we know which stays after March 3rd?
My money says 005.
Re. the thread title, I think you meant 016
It'll be most certainly on 005 ticketing stock with the current Shares system in place.
It will be on 016 but they have stated that they will keep 005 for other uses.
yes, 016. Sorry. Can we change the tittle?
I've notice the latest tickets I've bought have come from United Air
Everything I've heard suggests that they're going to be plating on 016 going forward, but keeping 005 as well for possible future uses.
Starting when, march?
Keeping the UA code obviously. 005 seems cooler, though I love 001.
Hate that airline though.
Here's some confirmation:
What is TK and UN?
I'm guessing its not Turkish or Transaero.
Thanks for the post, WA/SBM12.
TK = time change
UN = does not operate
They are PNR codes that the travel agents see and have to act on for the "schedule change" that the migration will precipitate.
From teh google: For the rescheduled flights, all PNRs will be updated with the new timings and PNR status will be TK.
It was basically guaranteed to be 016 plating the instant it was known the merged airline would operate under the United brand. For reasons too mind-numbingly trivial to get into here, air carriers operating under the same trade name post-merger almost never change their ticketing plates or two-character IATA codes.
Cue Meatloaf song "Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad"
Please explain... ?
Continental United Lite?
Its for TED.
Has this affected anyones ticketing strategy for post March flights as far as simplicity goes if you try to make changes, etc. and need someone to work on the ticket?
I know I have had problems in the past dealing with CO/UA split itins that it seemed like no one knew how to handle.
For post-migration flights it doesn't matter. Everything will be on a single code and, while they might have to reissue an 005 to 016 it won't be an issue the way mixed carrier itineraries present today.
