Amadeus
All Amadeus courses are updated to reflect the newest Amadeus-preferred method of entering child and infant name elements. This method involves entering the birth date after the PTC. Please see Introduction to Amadeus Lesson 5, Part 4, or Comprehensive Amadeus Course 1, Lesson 8 Part 2 for details. Note that an infant name element no longer auto-generates an OSI message. Instead, both a child name element and an infant name element will auto-generate an SSR message, but only when the itinerary is complete (specifically, when the number of name elements is equal to the number of seats sold in each flight segment).
Page 38 of the Introduction to Amadeus Workbook should be corrected to show the following child and name entries:
  • NM1MULLER/WOLFGANG MSTR(CHD/15MAR09)
  • NM1VALK/TRINA MRS(INF/KARIN/23JAN12)
  • NM1KOPPEL/MARY MRS(INFVALK/KARIN/23JAN12)
Note the absence of a slash character between "INF" and the infant's last name.
