    Deciphering Fare Codes - Qantas

    Hello all,

    I have been searching on WebJet to build my Multi City International Itinerary (MEL - SIN - FRA) and I am getting codes and fare rules as follows:

    CarrierQantas AirwaysFarecodeQLEB07FromMelbourne (Tullamarine Airport)ToFrankfurt (Frankfurt International)


    and...

    CarrierQantas AirwaysFarecodeSLBB1YFromFrankfurt (Frankfurt International)ToMelbourne (Tullamarine Airport)Rules



    Could someone decipher these codes for me and let me know if these fares are eligible for QFF earns, upgrades, status credits etc?

    This would be much appreciated!

    Regards,

    Brett

    The first letter is the booking class, in this case Q and S.

    They are both treated as discount economy for points and SC earn on QFF.

    Re: Deciphering Fare Codes - Qantas

    The Q class fare is not eligable to be upgraded


    SLBB1Y -
    S - Books in S Class
    L - Low Season
    BB - Budget Fare
    1Y - 1 year validity

    QLEB07
    Q - Books in Q class
    L - Low Season
    EB - buget excursion
    07 - Valid 7 days ( I think ... but it seems odd that it has a 7 day validity to FRA )

    Cheers Dave and Kiwi,

    May I ask where you can get this sort of info from? Do I need ExpertFlyer?

    You wont get deciphering information from EF, though you can see the fare rules

    The part that is most relevent to most people is the 1st character since that normally determines the booking class and so normally eligability to FF miles , upgrades et al

    What I have managed to build up so far for fare codes is

    Code:
    Fare codes are made of up to 6 parts
    
    Classcode [Season code] [part of week] [fare and passenger code] [fare level indicator]
    
    
    Class Code
    depends on carrier
    
    Season Code
    H - High
    K - High Shoulder
    O - Mid Shoulder
    J - Low Shoulder
    L - Low
    
    ( F, T, Q, Y may be used occassionally )
    
    Part of Week
    
    W - Weekend
    X - Weekday
    N - Night
    
    
    Fare and Passenger Codes
    
    AP - Advance Purchase - followed by AP requirement e.g. 30 or 3M
    AB - Advance Purchase lower level - followed by AP requirement e.g. 30 or 3M
    AN - Advance Purchase Non refundable - followed by AP requirement e.g. 30 or 3M
    PX - Public Excursion - may follow with validity in nn days or nM months
    SS - Super Saver - may follow with validity in nn days or nM months or 1Y
    SX - Super Pex - may follow with validity in nn days or nM months or 1Y
    E - Excursion - may follow with validity in nn days or nM months or 1Y
    EE - Excursion - may follow with validity in nn days or nM months or 1Y
    B - Budget
    BB - Budget
    DB - Budget Discounted
    CH - Child
    IN - Infant
    SC - Ship's Crew fare
    SD - Student fare
    SH - Spouse fare
    ST - Spouse fare ( accompanying )
    UU - Standby
    ZZ - Youth Fare
    G - Group fare
    CD - Senior Citizen fare
    OX - One way excursion fare
    OW - One Way fare
    IT - Inclusive Tour
    NN - on BA Non refundable , non changeable - may be followed by region code ( e.g. GB or EUR)
    NC - on BA Non refundable , changeable - mabe be followed by region code ( e.g. GB or EUR)
    FF - On BA region restrictions ( I think) - followed by a region code 
    Fare level indicator
    
    1 - Highest Level
    2 - 2nd Highest
    3 - 3rd highest ( or lowest )

    Fare codes seem to very a bit by airline - which airlines are you basing the above on Dave Noble?

    The ones I have listed (except for the ones which I listed for BA) are, I believe, standard ones rather than airline specific ones
