Location Code in Mishandling Baggage

Hello, The 'Location Code' is a mandatory field for Charge Code 'Mishandling Baggage' ( Ground Handling Mishandling Baggage ). However, in some cases we are not able to detect where the baggage lost. For the itinerary ATL/AMS/IST, it might have lost either in Atlanta, Amsterdam or Istanbul. So, how does this field to be validated in such a case ?

Dear Yusuf,
Location code is not specific to ground handling Charge Category / Charge Code. We require this field in most of the Charge Category.
As you invoice out of IST I assume that the correct location code will be IST if you do not have the location where the luggage was mishandle.
Best Regards
