    I found this doc a while back but never got round to reading it, it explains many useful facts about fare construction, such as what an end-on is, when you use an add-on, circle trips, half round-trips., etc.

    It also goes some way to explain why you can combine fares in ways that seem inexplicable such as differences between US domestic combinability and elsewhere. It might explain how to create trips using what's termed "unreasonable connections" that allow a surface break because there's no reasonable air route betwen them.

    If you find anything interesting in it, let us know.

    This glossary might also be useful:

    This journey is not allowed to have five international departures from the Netherlands.

    Published Fares and Add-On Amounts
    Where no published direct fare exists between 2 points over the required routing, a
    through fare can be constructed by means of add-on amounts:
    - add the add-on amount to the published fare between the origin/destination and
    the add-on gateway city
    - only one add-on amount at each end of a published direct fare may be used
    - the add-on amount to be used must applicable for the same class as the published
    fare to which it is added
    - a fare constructed with add-on is regarded as a published through fare and must
    be shown in the ticket as one single amount
    - such through fare will then be subject to all rule conditions appl9icable to the
    international fare used in the construction.
    Add-on must not be separately sold/ticketed as a sector fares
