SFI 20, element no 28, 29: 4N correct?

Hi.
 
These two elements (from airport, to airport) in the coupon record are defined as 4N. Currently, we know 3 digit airport codes only. Is this just for future use, or should we expect 4 digit codes now?
 
Please advise.
Thanks.

Hi.
 
They should be populated with the 3 letter codes that we're all familiar with (the "IATA code"), left justified and blank filled, as in the example ("JFK ").
 
These fields are 4A for future use, just in case interline billing switches to the ICAO codes (4A) or IATA increases the length.

Hello,
Can these fields be left blank for prime billings (lifts, fims)?
Thanks,
Lori - Delta
