Miscellaneous - Category = Mail - LocationCode @Type value

Reference to XML Standard v3.0, Line 290 'LocationCode @Type' for Charge category 'Mail' - Please advise what is the value expected in the xml. The 'Value/Format' column describes it as
 
"3-character IATA airport code or UN/LOCODE location code if non airport.
Type attribute is mandatory and AN25
The attribute is open ended. Possible values:  Origin / Destination / FirstPortOfCall / LastPortOfCall/ Intermediate/ 0"
 
What should the value be displayed there in case if the reference is (for example) LHR. Is the value expected in the xml as 'LHR/Origin'?
 
How does the xml file consider/convey the carriage from & carriage to of the Mail being billed through interline?

Dear Zarir,
 
In the IS XML you should report the orign and destination as:
 

<IATA_Invoice_Standard:RouteDetails>

<IATA_Invoice_Standard:LocationCode Type="Origin">LHR</IATA_Invoice_Standard:LocationCode>

</IATA_Invoice_Standard:RouteDetails>

<IATA_Invoice_Standard:RouteDetails>

<IATA_Invoice_Standard:LocationCode  Type="Destination">JFK</IATA_Invoice_Standard:LocationCode>

</IATA_Invoice_Standard:RouteDetails>

Best Regards

Bruno

Dear Bruno,
 
Thanks for the explanation. However, the second part of the question remains unanswered.
 
In a scenario where Mail having Origin-Destination as VIE-JFK and carried as
VIE-LHR (on own carrier)
LHR-JFK (on OAL - e.g. DL)
 
Hence, when we receive the billing from DL for LHR-JFK sector, how will that be depicted in the xml?
 
Please advice. Thanks.
 
Best Regards,
 
Zarir

Hi Zarir,

 

The IS-XML should depict only the intermediate origin (LHR) and the destination (JFK).

 

Rgds,

Ashley
