Source Code for billing FIMD Tickets

What is the source code assigned to the tickets collected by FIM forwarding carrier?  02 or 01?  We used to use 12 for these billings.

Hi. We're not completely clear on the question.

If by "FIM forwarding carrier" you're talking about the carrier that was originally scheduled to uplift coupons sold by another carrier, then that would be source code 01. The carrier uplifting the coupons will always bill the interline coupons as prime uplift (source code 01) -- regardless if this carrier transports the PAX or not. If this carrier has to create a FIM and forward the PAX to another carrier, then this other carrier will interline bill the FIM with source code 14.

Let's assume that CI has coupons from DL that it's about to lift, the flight goes tech, and CI has to transfer these to Eva. There will be a FIM billing (source code 14) from EVA to CI. And there will be a prime coupon billing (source code 01) from CI to DL.

You answered my question but confused me.
Under the circumstances of involuntary reissue, the new validating carrier originally scheduled to uplift coupons sold by another carrier, reissue a new ticket and bill the original validating carrier with SC 02 for the old ticket. 
However, in accordance with your definition of SC 01, the new validating carrier shall bill the old one with SC 01?

Hi,
 
To pick up on this question, what you said above is correct, the new validating carrier shall bill the old one under SC02, not SC01.

Best regards
