2 Aim of this talkThe aim of these workshops are to get rid of the grey areas concerning these fares and to explain how they fit in with our current and future work processes
3 What are CAT35 fares?These are our net fares loaded by airlines directly on GalileoOther fares in the CAT family include CAT15 which are client specific net fares (route deals) or CAT25 which are also route deals but based on specific discounts off published fares
4 What are the advantages? CAT35 fares that quote with an “A” status and are issued within deadline given are guaranteed the same way “G” status published fares are.This means there should be no ADMs on themAlso means less resource spent loading them
5 How do I quote one?In a nutshell you modify your farequote or faredisplay entry with a :CFor example FDLONNYC:C as fare quoteFQS1.4/CKL:C as farequoteExamples to follow

9 Key features The fare display shows fares with a “-” The quoted fare says private fare selectedThe filed fare shows an “A” status and a tourcode. You should fill in the parts that are missed out such as TMUs
10 Hidden faresThe :C entry only displays hidden net fares not published faresThe fares that are shown/quoted by this method are only NET fares, you still need to use your normal tools to mark them upAirlines are encouraged to load this way on Galileo so published and net don’t get mixed up.
11 Non Hidden faresOccasionally airlines load these fares so they appear on a normal fare display alongside published fares e.g. LO, IB and RG (until recently). These can be quoted and are guaranteed as normal but remember these are NET!
12 Mark upsAt the point of sale these fares need to be marked up to your normal selling levels.Note with current commission levels it is often better to downsell a net rather than sell a published
13 Other types of private fares loaded There are other types of fares that you may see in the futureTG for example loaded fares which gave a “P” status farequote and were actually their net fares marked up 10% then set to trigger only a 4% earning !
14 Account codes These are other fare entries that can either display Marked up CAT35 faresRoute deal fares loaded by airlines
15 Marked up CAT35 faresThis is a mark up method using an account code. Galileo shortly will have the option to mark up without this.Entry is FDLONNYC/AF-PRI-XXX where XXX is an account code set to mark up by a specific percentage point
16 Marked up CAT35 route deal This is same entry to previous but it will show a company’s route deal which again gives a guaranteed fare and saves looking up the route deal.Fare display:- FDLONMSP/CO-PRI-XXXFare quote:- FQCCO-XXXXXX is the company account code
17 CAT 35 known issues Delays in loadings by airlines KL don’t plan to load one ways!Complex itineraries cannot always quoteDiscrepancies due to “Q” taxes being added in different places at different levelsSome errors on levels loaded or on PCC loaded under so don’t show everywhere they shouldIf any fare quoted by CAT35 has a different net to contract please contact the airline.
18 Future of CAT35Development in the future is likely to make CAT35 fit in better with Galileo and reduce the number of follow up entries such as TMU1BT*PC etc . For example soon marked up CAT35 fares can be made to appear in the normal fare display and so be more directly comparable with published fares. Note these cannot be used for ticketing
19 CAT35 carriersDepending on what net fare contracts you have the current Galileo carriers are:-KL, AF, NW, LH, DL, OS, BE, RG, SQ, AZ, AC, SN, LO, IB, 9YQF, AY, CO, CX soonSee for latest list
