Emirates introduces Reservations Code for Private Suites in First Class

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Tuesday, 11 March 2008

For all First Class bookings made for travel on or after 30th March 2008 in aircraft featuring Emirates Private Suites, Emirates Airline has introduced a new reservations booking designator (RBD) using the letter 'P'.

The Private Suites will initially feature on selected Emirates Airbus A340-500, Boeing 777-200 LR, Airbus A380 and Boeing 777-300 ER three class aircraft, before being rolled out on other selected 3 class aircraft across the Emirates fleet. The new booking code designators on the aircraft with Private Suites is P (First Class with Private Suites), J (Business Class) and Y (Economy Class); while aircraft without suites will continue with F, J and Y designators.

Emirates will reflect the new 'P' reservations code in its own Carrier Reservation System (CRS) and in all Global Distribution Systems (GDS), thus enabling Emirates Reservation and Sales staff, as well as the travel trade, to identify the new Private Suite product and inform the customer accordingly. In addition, it will allow those of customers who can interpret a PNR to establish whether they are travelling in a Private Suite, although the product will continue to be known as Emirates First Class.
