Book cheap flights with the help of Jr command.
Here is the most demanding video of mine. You will love this video and after watching the video of Sabre JR command you will able to work more efficiently and with confidence.
This special video is all about Jr command which helps you to find cheap flights with a single command.
Example: If you want to check the price of a ticket on 15 Jul Dallas to Los Angeles. You don’t need to check the availability of seats on every airline and also not need to spend hours to find a cheap ticket. simply put this command JR.DFW/S-OYLAX15JUL and press enter the result will amaze you because you will get the cheapest fare in front of you. Simply book the fare with the command JR01 or Jr02 whatever option suits you go with it.
If you need to check the return flight or with different options here are the commands you can check it with these commands:
Here is another way to check and book the cheapest fare, Sabre has an option of Graphical view for this purpose check the video how can you use this option quite frankly this option is easy to use but time-consuming so I always prefer the first option.
Check the video below:
Sabre training with the help of images:
We should follow one example throughout the training session for better understanding. Currently, we get it simple, and we will update the example as we go on.
Example: our client Mr Arnold/john come to the office and say that he need a flight from Dubai to London on 29 Jan Flight must be on Emirates Airline and Departure time should be between 10:00 to 14:00.
Things to be noted:
- Date: 29Jan
- Dubai cod: DXB
- London code: LHR
- Emirates Airline code: EK
Availability: (check the availability of flight on specific date)
As per our example, we need to check the availability of Emirates airline flight on29 Jan for DXB to LHR
Where 1 is a code of availability which is must write, 29JAN is a date of travelling, DXB is a code of Dubai, LHR is a code of London, ‡ is a sign which is getting by pressing a button which is right before Enter button, EK is Emirates Airline code.
WE ARE DISCUSSING the FIRST LINE IN WHICH EK IS EMIRATES CODE 31 IS FLIGHT NUMBER FROM F TO X ARE DIFFERENT CLASSES WHERE F AND A ARE FIRST CLASS FROM J TO P ARE BUSINESS CLASSES AND FROM Y TO X ARE ECONOMY CLASSES WHERE DXBLHR IS CODE OF AIRPORTS 1210 IS DEPARTURE TIME OF TIME AND 1610 IS ARRIVAL TIME IN LONDON
SELLING: (Reserve seat)
As per our example, the client required departure time is between 10:00 to 14:00 so the flight which we highlighted in above screenshot is perfect for the client in which 12:10 is departure time.
Where 0 is selling code (which is a must) 1 is a number of seats required in this case we need only 1 seat so we right 1 x is a class in which seat required we have discussed above that from f to x these are different classes so we need to select as per client requirement. We will discuss the classes in detail later in Fare option.
Here what we have after selling 1 is line number EK is Emirates Airline code X is class in which seat reserved 29 Jan is date, DXBLHR is airport code SS1 mean 1 seat confirm 1210 is departure time from Dubai (Dubai time) 1610 is arrival time in London (London time)
Fare (Check the price of reserved seat)
To check the fare command is wp but we want you to watch the video for better understanding. We have shared the great ways to check and book the seats.
In this screenshot, we don’t get any fare but we got the list of fares, 01 to 12 different fare starting from low to high, on top fare is 89893 then 93633 and so on,
This means that there is no fare for X class which you have reserved but the cheapest fare which is available it’s for Q class then U class and so on. How can we reserve this q class one way is to ignore this using I command and take new availability and sell Q class The other way which is direct way Use the command WPNCB what this command will do this command will automatically reserve the available cheapest fare seat and display the fare of that seat.
So Here see The first line in a screenshot and the Last line in First line we have X class reserved and when we put the command sabre automatically cancel the X class and reserve Q class which is cheapest in flight and display the fare of class.
In this first line Fare, AED 2420 EQUIV PKR 69670 where AED 2420 is the price in Dubai Currency and 69670 is PKR currency This 69670 is called basic fare. Basic fare is the fare without taxes.
Second Line is TAX PKR 2159AE PKR 144TP PKR 17920XT where 2159 is the amount of tax AE is category same the case with all. If you need to want the total tax you may add all of these three taxes to find the tax amount or you can find the difference of basic fare and total fare result will be tax amount.
Third Line TOTAL PKR 89893 total amount payable to the airline.
Note: YOU NEED TO CHARGE CLIENT ABOVE THIS TOTAL AMOUNT AS YOUR SERVICE CHARGES.
