Source Code 90

Please clarify statement from ISPG:
Source Code 90 and a single stage billing process is the INDUSTRY SOLUTION to charge FF Mileage Redemption Amount as well as any taxes or additional charge collected at the same time in a single transaction.
 
Isn't this an industry solution OPTION for carriers that bilaterally agree to a single stage billing process, but non-transport category/charge codes still exist for FF Mileage Accrual and FF Mileage Redemption settlement if agreed between carriers?

Hi Kathy,

 

Yes, the billing of FF Redemption in a one-step billing is an OPTIONAL industry solution and hence it needs a bilateral/multilateral agreement to bill this way.

Please note, that some alliances might make this process mandatory.

 

The reason the carriers in the SIS Pax Working Group defined this process is, that carriers normally are doing FF Redemption within and outside the alliance. And carriers would like to (if possible) implement only one process (and not a different one for each carrier).

The FF Redemption in billing category Pax allows to clearly allocate the mileage/points revenue to the correct flight/date in the route profitability.

 

The FF Miles Charge Code used in the Billing Category “M”, will also be used for non-carriers/non-flight coupons, like FF Redemption / Accrual with Hotels, car rental etc,etc.

Hope this helps.

Best regards
