Interpreting the myIDTravel fare codes

When checking the flight loads in myIDTravel, you are presented a variety of fare codes. These letters represent a category of airline tickets available for purchase. The corresponding number is a rough indication of the number of available tickets for sale. These numbers might be out-of-date and are capped to 7 or 9 (depending on the operating airline). Also, the sum of the numbers does not equal the total number of available seats. Lastly, most airlines overbook flights, so these numbers do not represent how many seats are actually available to non-rev on.

  • Business/first class:A, C, D, F, I, J
  • Premium economy class:W
  • Economy class:B, E, Y, X

Accurate and up-to-date load information can be obtained in the StaffTraveler app.

When you get this error, something has gone wrong with your booking. Most likely, the payment has failed. Your tickets are held for about half an hour, during which you cannot make a new booking for the same itinerary.


Wait 30 minutes and try again.


PNR Error

If you cannot access an unused PNR, it has either been cancelled previously or purged from the airline’s reservation system and is no longer available.
