FREQUENT FLYER MILEAGE REDEMPTION BILLINGS

According to ISPG §3.10. there are 2 ways for interlining Frequent Flyer Prime billings :

·         In two different invoices (mostly similar to the actual settlement);

·         As a Single Stage billing process.

 

In case of single stage billing process, prime billings have to be done under Source Code 90 and the FFP Amount shall be reflected on the coupon record as “Coupon Gross Value”. In case a Sampling agreement exists between two parties, will the FFP billings be part of the Sampling ?

How can we handle the coupon value which is normally part of the Sampling and the FFP amount which is actually outside Sampling ?

Thanks a lot,

Elias, LX

Dear Elias,

If the FF Redemption coupon needs to be considered in Sampling, they will have to be billed under Source Code 90 when raising a provisional Form A/B. While raising Form D/E it will be listed under source code 54 like other source code transactions (1,2 etc).

There is no issue with billing Source Code 90 transactions to be billed in Sampling Provisional Invoice or Non Sample Invoice.

Best regards

Dear Ashley,
 
I'm afraid there is a great deal of uncertainity concerning the FF billing procedures. One would like the ISPG and RAM to be more precise whether this is non sample OR sample (if carriers are sample carriers).
Our system provider has considered this as non-sample. Likewise has one of our sample partners.
 
What is the rule? Do we need to discuss and agree on this with all our sample partners, whether to handle this as sample or non sample?
 
Brgds,
Erik Madsen/SK

Hi Erik,

 

The Single stage billing process defined in the ISPG and RAM is an optional way of billing FF coupons in SIS. This is applicable for Non-Sample billing and Sample billing if agreed on a bilateral basis.

 

Best regards
