    Trying to price a Business award ticket to NAI using a mixture of VX and SN.

    When pricing a segment LHR-NAI, it comes up as this:
    Why is this showing as "G" fare class, I thought this was a cheapie econ revenue fare?

    I want to make sure that I book this award ticket, I actually get Upper and they don't try to put me in coach. No reason for me to necessarily think that, however, just wanted to make sure.

    Assume it is a website error.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Nairobi's IATA code is NBO (NAI is in Guyana). Virgin Atlantic's IATA code is VS (VX=Virgin America).

    And, yes, VS UpperClass awards book into G on VS. Not all airlines use the same codes for the same things.

    sorry, should have confirmed my title before posting, sorry. :)

    I don't want to go to Guyana :)

    I know that airlines use different codes but for whatever reason thought award tickets used CO codes for free tickets, but I was wrong.

    Thanks for clarification... Appreciate it.

    At least I got SN right for Brussels Airlines

    On a side note, it would be nice to be able to have the functionality to change thread titles if you have started the particular thread.

    Why not? You're missing out.

    Nope...While most *A partners (maybe all, but I'm not positive) use the same codes for award tickets the non-*A partners have their own and CO issues the ticket under the partner code for a partner flight.
