The VIT (e.g. VITUA59 or VITUA59/12AUG) function is now available in the Apollo emulator for every direct flight. VIT is very similar to the *SVC entries, but is particularly useful for flights that make stops enroute because it provides a breakdown of the total elapsed flight time, including time spent on the ground.

Amadeus Updates
Hotels The Amadeus hotel modules have been updated to reflect current hotel information and changes in entries and responses. Significant changes include the elimination of different display formats for single-property hotel displays. There is just one single-property display format now, and one hotel sell entry. Another change is that it is no longer possible to book a hotel room from multi-property availability. There is a new lesson, Lesson 6, in Package 2, Course 5 teaching "points of reference" displays, an Amadeus tool used to locate hotels. There are now 10 lessons in Course 5.
