We note the need for proper management of reservations, and provide instructions on the good governance of the reservation systems

1. QUEUES. Check daily your queues and ascertain that all the PNRs do not contain segments that you don't need. All the segments with the status code HX / UC / UN / US / NO should be deleted from the PNR always by using the right cancellation codes which are the following:

- ‘ΧΚ’ for SABRE, Galileo and Worldspan

- ‘DL’ or ‘ERK’ for Amadeus

2. Segments not in use: free places that you are not interested in. Cancellations and removal of the segments should be made as soon as possible and not later than one day prior to the date of departure.

3. Booking Classes: Always use the proper booking class that corresponds to the appropriate tariff.

4. Separate PNRs: Do not create a separate PNRs for the same passenger on the same route. Use the same PNR for incoming and outgoing reservations. Follow the complete route on the same PNR.
