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.

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
