bookings. Although it is possible to do this, some of the booking elements stored within the
mask are not in SITA Reservations Desktop format. If booking elements in unrecognized
formats are inserted into a SITA Reservations Desktop booking, it can cause parsing errors if
the formats are not recognized. SITA Reservations Desktop will display these elements in the
'Miscellaneous Booking Details' section of the 'Booking Summary' screen.
Dates
■
Date text fields allow years to be entered when the appropriate host entry allows years.

General Information
The following are general information hints and tips from expert Web users that will help
agents create bookings faster using SITA Reservations Desktop.
Air Availability
■
■
■
In SITA Reservations Desktop Air Availability, several types of information may be
displayed. Ask the customer for their full itinerary. Then from the availability display,
manipulate the response and keep all the information on one screen.
If the flights are almost full, use the calendar to display multiple days and find those last few
seats quickly. For more information see the Calendar Availability section.
Timetable Display

The standard availability display and the first available display in SITA Reservations
are limited by the system parameter S$ALIM, number of days in the future. If a
request for these displays is entered beyone this date, a timetable display is
returned to the screen. A timetable display will include only a list of classes and does
not include any availability levels.
● The SITA Reservations S$ALIM parameter is currently set to 330 days. It is not
recommended that agents request availability that is greater than 330 days in the
future.
Calendar Availability
● Calendar availability is designed to provide an overview of availability for a range of
dates in the near future. It should not be used for future availability requests that are
greater than one year from the current date.
●
■
Certificates
SITA Reservations Desktop uses a secure HTTPS connection over the Internet. (This is
identified by a padlock button on the agent's task menu.)
While using the application, an agent may receive a warning message that advises that the
page contains both secure and non-secure item and asks the agent if they wish to continue
loading the page.
If this message is displayed, the agent should click Yes and the application will continue to
work normally.
Cut and Paste
It is often useful to be able to copy information from one screen to another. Rather than using
the mouse try these shortcuts:
■
■
■
Copy: Press the Control key and C
Paste: Press the Control key down and V
Selecting text:
● To select an entire line of text: press the Control key and A.
● To select a word: place the cursor at the start of the word, press the Control and
Shift keys, and then click the right arrow. This can also be done backwards by using
the left arrow.
● To select text to the end of a line: press the Shift key and the End key. This also
works with the Home key as well to select to the start of the line.
Full screen
■
■
Click the F11 key to make the application full screen. That is, see more information with
less scrolling.
Click F11 again to go back to the normal screen layout.

2. Hints and Tips
Revision Date: 2009-Nov-16, Revision 1.0
Java Applet
The Emulator uses a signed java applet. When the agent accesses the Emulator, they may
receive a message asking if they wish to accept the applet's certificate. It is recommended
that 'Always' is selected. This will automatically accept the certificate and stop the message
reappearing in future instances.
Keyboard versus Mouse
Most SITA Reservations Desktop screens, though not all, can be navigated without the
mouse using the following:
■
■
Tab key: to move around the fields in each screen.
Enter key: defaults to the main button on the screen; e.g., the find flights button on Air
Availability and the quote button on Fare Quote. Click Enter rather than using the mouse to
click on the main button.
Lists
The automatic response to seeing a list is to use the mouse. However, there are other ways to
navigate the list without using the mouse, such as:
■
■
■
Arrow keys: Click the down arrow on the keyboard until the desired item is located.
Letters: Click a letter key to select the first item in a list that starts with that letter; e.g., on
the list above, clicking U will automatically select Un-Ticketed Passengers.
If there is more than one item that starts with the chosen letter, clicking the letter again will
select the next item in the list.
Alt down arrow: To view the contents of a list, hold down the Alt key and click the down
arrow. This will open the list with all available content selections.

■
Some list boxes allow multiple selections. Multiple items can be selected by holding the
CTRL key and selecting items with the mouse. Alternatively, a combination of CTRLSpace and Up Arrow or Down Arrow can be used.
SSRs
If an SSR has a remark that does not have a period (full-stop) < . > before the text, the first
two characters will display in the status code column field.
In the Add or Amend SSR, some SSRs may have a description / format that are different to
those trained to agents. These are read from a database and can be amended without a new
release.
Tabbing
■
■
■
Use the Tab key to move between most fields. It is often quicker to tab four or five times to
get to a field than it is to pick up the mouse and click.
Careful consideration has been given to the tab order on each screen attempting to keep
key strokes to a minimum while ensuring access to all fields on the screen.
To tab backwards hold down the Shift key and press Tab.
Text size
Most of the text in the application can be made larger or smaller.
■
■
■
Larger: Use the scroll wheel on the mouse, hold down the control key, and rotate the scroll
wheel towards you.
Smaller: Rotate the scroll wheel the other way.
Use the View menu to change the text size: select View and then Text Size.

Internet Browser Functions
The following are Internet browser function hints and tips from expert Web users that will help
agents create bookings faster using SITA Reservations Desktop.
Internet Explorer version 6.0 must be used. No other browser types or Internet Explorer
versions are supported by SITA Reservations Desktop.
As Internet Explorer is an application in its own right, it is possible for certain functions to
conflict with those carried out by SITA Reservations Desktop. Certain Internet Explorer
functions should not be used as it is not possible to send the required SITA Reservations host
commands unless the request is performed by SITA Reservations Desktop.
Recommended Screen Display
'Full Screen' mode is recommended when using SITA Reservations Desktop. Full screen
mode is selected in Internet Explorer by pressing the 'F11' function key once. (Normal screen
view can be resumed by pressing 'F11' again.)
Certain screens allow you to resize the text using Internet Explorer. The largest text size may
not fit into SITA Reservations Desktop heading columns. It is recommended to use the
medium and smaller text sizes.
Prohibited Internet Explorer Functions
The following Internet browser functions should not be used:
●
●
●
●
'X' Close Window button
'Back' button
'Refresh' button
'Open New Window' command in the 'File' menu

3. Sign In
To begin using SITA Reservations Desktop, an agent must first sign in to the application. To
sign in, enter the following mandatory information, except as noted for optional:
Airline
Agent Number
■ Password
■ User Group (optional if you only have one user group)
■ PID
■ Office (optional)
If accessing SITA Reservations Desktop over the Internet, the User Group must be greater
than 17 (a reservation user group only).
■
■
SITA Reservations Desktop Sign In Screen
In the SITA Reservations Desktop, a browser window will be opened as a specific work area.
This work area is fixed to that specific browser window and cannot be changed. Work Area A
is active after initial sign in.
SITA Reservations Desktop uses the same static PID an agent currently uses with Liaison.
Two agents cannot use the same PID in SITA Reservations Desktop at the same time.
Liaison and SITA Reservations Desktop cannot be used with the same PID at the same time.
The 'Sign In' button is used to validate the sign in request. If sign in is successful, the 'Air

Work Areas
There are five different work areas. The work areas display as A, B, C, D and E hyperlinks on
the top left of the screen. Only one of the open browser windows is 'active' at any one time.
Transactions can only be completed from the 'active' work area. (For instance, it is not
possible to have two windows open for area C).
The work areas can only be signed in sequentially. For instance, to sign in to Area C, the
agent must first be signed in to Areas A and B. For this reason, logic has been added to
display a prompt if the agent attempts to sign in to multiple areas out of sequence. Each open
browser window will represent a work area. The work area can be determined by the
highlighted work area hyperlink.
If the agent requests to sign in to a new work area, SITA Reservations Desktop will open a
new browser window with the Sign In screen displayed. The following inputs are displayed:
Airline
Agent Number
■ Password
■ User Group
■ Office
The Agent Number field is pre-populated with the agent number from the original sign in.
Agent number cannot be changed or the sign in request will fail.
■
■
The task bar on the PC will display a browser window for each open work area. The agent
can navigate between the different work areas by clicking on the relevant button on the task
bar or using the Alt Tab keys. When a new work area is accessed, it immediately becomes the
'active' work area.

Modify Button
After entering or modifying the passenger name details, click OK.
The system then determines if a passenger surname is being changed.
If a surname has been changed, the system will display a prompt stating 'You will lose any
remarks, OSI's, contacts, addresses and ticketing details associated to this passenger(s). Do
you wish to continue?' with 'Yes' and 'No' buttons.
If 'No' is selected, the 'Names' screen displays pre-populated with the original booking details.

booking. (If there is a delete button adjacent to the passenger names then the passenger
name details are in the booking.)
An OSI is created for a child when the name and date of birth details are added. Once the OSI
is added there is no longer a relationship between the child name/date of birth and the child
OSI. Therefore, if the date of birth is amended or deleted in the names screen then you will
have to manually amend or delete the OSI in the OSI screen. Also if the child passenger prerecord location is deleted, the OSI (at this point the OSI is in internal memory and if you end
the booking without deleteing the OSI the system will be trying to add an OSI to a passenger
that no longer exists) needs to be deleted.

will always enter the extra seats types (CBBG and EXST) into the booking as a family
surname entry. An SSR will need to be added by the agent in the SSR OSI screen to provide
a description of the extra seat type, and the entry will need to be passenger associated.

Adding SSRs
The ‘SSR’ (Special Service Requirement) screen in the Booking Management module
allows you to add, modify, reduce and delete SSRs. Also you can move deleted SSRs into
History.
The SSR element must be entered in an exact format. It will vary in content and length based
on the type of request.
Each SSR element is handled separately. Appropriate messages and/or queues are
generated for SSRs during the end process when creating or modifying a booking.
Select the relevant passenger(s), segment(s) and select a category. Then select the
appropriate SSR. Alternatively, select None as a category and enter the four-digit SSR code.
Also enter the main body of the SSR in the SSR Input box.
The system will send the SSR code, segment relation(s) and passenger relation(s) to each
entry.
Note: Although each entry has a slightly different format, it is up to you to correctly enter all the
relevant details in the 'SSR Input' field on the Add SSR or Modify SSR screen.
The Add SSR Details contains a list of passengers and itineraries with checkboxes to enable
them to be pre-selected. Underneath is an SSR Category drop-down list box that contains
the common SSR headings used by most airlines.
When an SSR category is selected, the SSR Details drop-down box adjacent is prepopulated with all SSRs that fall into that category.
Each SSR will then display a format label with instructions on how to complete the entry. An
Additional Information section displays in the bottom portion of the screen. This section holds
additional information to help you populate each SSR.
If None is selected as the category, then the additional information section will not be
populated with a format and will need input of the SSR Code with a four-digit code.

8. Control Tables
Control tables have information uniquely applicable to each individual Host Airline. Once
these files are set up they remain in the system until the Host Airline deletes them. Central
Site Personnel will load some initial files, but it is the responsibility of the agent to verify and
load all remaining files. The information for the initial file load is obtained from the SITA
Reservations User Functional Questionnaire, which is completed by the Host Airline. After
implementation, personnel selected and authorized by the Host Airline update the files.
Some of the information contained in selected agent files could be considered confidential.
Therefore, it is recommended that each airline set up a "Database Group". This group is
responsible for agent file maintenance for all departments within the airline.
SITA Reservations Desktop provides the ability (when applicable) to create, delete, update

Aircraft Configuration (CFG)
SITA Reservations Desktop provides the ability to create, update, copy, and delete Aircraft
Configuration table files.
The Aircraft Configuration (CFG:) file contains aircraft configuration information. Aircraft
configuration files are set up for capacity control and/or yield management purposes.
Each host airline has an Aircraft Configuration file that can contain up to 999 configuration
tables. Aircraft Configuration files are stored in user unique files. Each table must have a
unique table number.
Five compartments are available on each configuration table. If the flight uses five or less
classes in these compartments, the use of the aircraft configuration table files is optional. If the
flight uses more than five classes, a configuration table is required.
Note: The use of Aircraft Configuration table files is restricted by user group.
Multiple table numbers can be loaded in case of an en-route equipment change. A table
number can be changed at any time for any flight, date, and city by entering a different table
number. Each table describes an equipment type, number of compartments, classes of
service, and seating capacities.

City / Airport & Administrative
City / Airport & Administrative tables include information related to a city, airport, or office.
City / Airport (CITY)
The City File identifies whether a city is automated or not automated and is verified by
schedule record maintenance processing before a flight schedule entry is accepted for
activation. All airports that are included in the route of a flight must be loaded into this file
before the schedule record maintenance record is accepted.
An automated city has CRTs/PCs and printers connected to SITA Reservations and requires
queuing notifications of sales and service requests for that city. A non-automated city has
teletype communications and requires teletype message notification of sales and service
requests for that city.
SITA Reservations Desktop provides the ability to create, display, update, and delete City /
Airport files.

City Pair and Automatic Routing (SCH)
All flights shown in the timetable, date schedule, and availability displays are controlled by the
information that agents load into the City Pair and Automatic Routing Generation File. Before
loading any Flight Records for any Host Airline flight, agents need to load the City File for all
on-line cities served by that flight and load the City Pair file for all direct and connection
routings related to that flight.
Once the City Pair files are loaded, agents will activate the flight. An internal system program
continuously and automatically builds all existing connection routings. SITA Reservations
uses published minimum connection times (MCT) for all cities. For those airports in which
there are no Minimum Connecting Times published, the default is 20 minutes domestic and
60 minutes international.
Note: Information required for MCT exceptions include airport code/relevant status, rules for
involved carriers, specific carrier rules, specific flights and flight ranges, and specific cities and
countries. Any changes to the published MCT data must be made in the City Pair file. The
carrier must also notify the publisher of their MCT data to make the change.
SITA Reservations Desktop provides the ability to create, view, update, and delete City Pair
files.

Inventory Special Service Request (ISSR)
SITA Reservations Desktop provides the ability to create, display, update, copy, and delete
Inventory Special Service Request (ISSR) Control Table files.
ISSR takes precedence over everything else. Upon receipt of a special request, the system
checks to see if ISSR is in effect. If so, then ISSR processing takes place, and the system will
not look at the SSRT, Code Share, or Control tables.
Note: The use of ISSR tables is restricted by User Groups.
Each ISSR table defines the following:
Reference code (For information purposes only)
ISSR codes
■ Allocation by Equipment
■ Allocation by Compartments
Values may be entered for equipment or compartments 1 thru 5, not both. An error will be
returned if data is entered in both columns, or no value is entered in either column.
■
■
Percentage is calculated from the total of seats allocated to aircraft or each compartment and
will be reflected in the ISSR readout as a numerical figure. The numerical figure is rounded
down.

Rebook
When Rebook is used to rebook a flight segment, ISSR special requests are automatically
rebooked at the same time. The processing of ISSR segments using rebook will not impact
the rebooking of flight segments. For example, a special request that cannot be rebooked due
to lack of ISSR inventory will not prevent the rebooking of a flight segment.
If the rebook is from a non-ISSR flight to a non-ISSR flight there is no change to the
existing processing of OSIs / SSRs.
■ If the rebook is from a non-ISSR flight to an ISSR flight, or an ISSR flight to an ISSR flight,
SITA Reservations will return inventory when applicable and attempt to get ISSR
inventory for the new segment or class.
■ If the rebook is from an ISSR flight to a non-ISSR flight, SITA Reservations returns ISSR
inventory to the database for the cancelled segment. Standard (non-inventory) OSI / SSR
processing is then applied.
Note: Limit Sales, Point-of-Sale, Nesting, Combined Status, and other similar features are
independent of ISSR and have no effect on ISSR.
■
The rebook options include:
Rebook confirmed passengers
Rebook individual bookings only
■ Rebook group bookings only
■ Rebook passengers with the first or earliest booking dates
■ Rebook passengers with the latest or most recent booking dates
■ Cancel the specified bookings from the segment or flight
■ Confirm all wait listed passengers on their new flight/segment
■ Assign passengers a wait list priority at the time of rebooking
■ Do not do any passenger notification or queuing
■ Delay queuing until 2400 GMT
To apply more than one option, click Add More Options.

locator of the split booking.
Note: It is only possible to split a booking that has a record locator, more than one passenger
name, and has been ended. It is not possible to split a booking pre-record locator, as SITA
Reservations Desktop cannot handle multiple bookings in internal memory.
To split a booking, click on the Split Booking link on the navigation toolbar.
If the booking has a record locator and more than one passenger, system displays a list of
passengers with check boxes adjacent. The check box default for all passengers is
‘unchecked’.
Check the passenger(s) to split from the booking and click ok. The Booking Summary screen
displays with SP followed by the record locator in the Remarks area indicating the booking
has been split.

23. End of Transaction Description
The End process aims to reduce the number of hits to the host as well as providing a solution
to deal with unexpected connectivity problems.
During the end process, SITA Reservations Desktop has an additional step of creating a
'dummy' booking. This 'dummy' booking contains the mandatory fields; names, segments,
contact and ticketing.
The 'End' screen is accessed by clicking on the 'End' tab on the menu. In order to end a
booking and successfully generate a SITA Reservations record locator, the following
mandatory fields must be added first:
Names
Air Itinerary
■ Contacts
■ Ticket Field
The number of passenger names must match the number of seats in the air itinerary. A
contact and ticket type must cover each passenger in the booking.
■
■
The 'End' screen provides functionality to 'End' or 'End and Retrieve' a booking. The booking
can be ended by clicking on End or End and Retrieve.
Once a record locator is returned, the dummy contact and ticketing element are deleted and
the rest of the 'real' booking details are added into the booking in one or several hits to the
host depending on the size of the booking.
If the 'dummy' booking is created and there is a problem adding in any of the 'real' details, the
record locator with the text ***Incomplete Booking*** displays in the static screen on the left
hand side of the 'Caller' Input box with the record locator.
The reason for the creation of the 'dummy' booking is to help you and SITA Reservations
Desktop recover from host errors without losing the segments and name details. If there is an
error, SITA Reservations Desktop displays the host error message to you and sends the
'ignore' and 'retrieve' transaction. When SITA Reservations Desktop sends an ignore
transaction the segments and names are not lost as the 'dummy' booking has been created.
Although each screen has field validation, you may have entered something into an input field
that causes SITA Reservations to return a host error message. For example, the ticket date
entered may be when the office is closed and SITA Reservations will therefore not allow the
booking to end. Once amended, retry the 'End' process and SITA Reservations Desktop will
add the rest of the booking details into SITA Reservations.
If a 'dummy' booking had not been created, the segments and names would be lost when the
ignore transaction was sent. Also, if there is connectivity loss during the 'End' process, the
original segments will be lost. Even if SITA Reservations Desktop tried to re-sell the seats
they might not be available. Therefore, it was deemed a safer option to create the 'dummy'
booking during the 'End' process.

28. Work Areas
The work areas can only be signed in sequentially. For instance, to sign in to Area C, the
agent must first be signed in to Areas A and B. For this reason, logic has been added to
display a prompt if the agent attempts to sign in to multiple areas out of sequence.
In SITA Reservations Desktop, a browser window will be opened as a specific work area.
This work area is fixed to that specific browser window and cannot be changed.
There are five different work areas. The work areas display as A, B, C, D and E hyperlinks on
the top left of the screen. Only one browser window can be open for a work area at any one
time. (For instance, it is not possible to have two windows open for area C).
Each open browser window will represent a work area. The work area can be determined by
the highlighted work area hyperlink.
Only one of the open browser windows is 'active' at any one time. Transactions can only be
completed from the 'active' work area.
Work Area A is active after initial sign in.
Managing Multiple Work Areas
With multiple work areas open and an expired session, the first work area navigates to the
sign in screen. Sign in again and that session becomes Work Area A and all the other work
areas/browsers are no longer valid. This means that there could be two Work Area A's, and if
one is closed it will close them both.
If in Work Area A and go back to the sign in screen and sign back in, any other sessions that
are open are no longer valid. Therefore, on a time out, close browsers and sign in again.
Close all other SITA Reservations Desktop browsers before signing back in.
Click on a work area hyperlink. SITA Reservations Desktop determines if the selected work
area has an existing browser window.
If there is an existing browser window, you are already signed in. SITA Reservations Desktop
sends the 'Agent In' entry to SITA Reservations. The window displays on top of any other
windows pre-populated with any existing transactions. If there is no existing browser window,
SITA Reservations Desktop determines if there is an existing session.
If there is an existing session, SITA Reservations Desktop opens a browser window and
displays the sign in screen with message 'Already logged into Area 'n'. Click the Sign In to
change to this work area'.
Click Sign In and SITA Reservations Desktop displays any existing transactions in that work
area.
If there is no open window and no existing session, SITA Reservations Desktop determines if
the selected work area is the current work area.
