ETR Display

This enhancement allows for an e-Ticket Record link to be attached to My Trip and More itineraries when e-tickets are issued. The information for the e-ticket record is extracted from the Electronic Ticket Record (ETR).

When multiple names are contained in a PNR, and the e-Ticket Record link is selected, a drop down list of names displays. Select the applicable name, and the ETR is displayed.

If the fare is indicated as BT, or Bulk, or if the letters IT precedes a fare, Bulk prints in the Air Fare and Total Air Fare line.

Only participating e-ticket airlines are allowed access to e-ticket records. The following text is added under Passenger Notice:

The Electronic Ticket Record will not reflect flight reservation changes, schedules changes, or cancellations made after the electronic ticket was issued. For complete and current flight information, please refer to your My Trip and More itinerary.

ETR Link Location

NOTE:

The ETR only displays departure times within the itinerary. An e-ticket record link displays to the right of the e-mail itinerary link. If the e-mail itinerary link is selected, a screen displays the ETR, or a name select in the case of multiple names.

 

 

 

Multiple Name PNR

When multiple names exist in the PNR, a drop down list is displayed. Display the itinerary by selecting the appropriate name.

Internet Enabled Cellular Phones

My Trip and More provides access to an itinerary via devices such as cellular phones which support HTML. Cell phone users can access instructions to display their itineraries by clicking on the cell phone link below Wireless Access on the My Trip and More log-in page.

The following screen is displayed.

top of page


Itinerary Display

Itinerary items are sorted in date order, based on the first date in each segment. The hierarchy for a display is:

  • Air
  • Car
  • Hotel
  • Travel Segment or Tour Information

A heading, representing that portion of the trip, identifies the different parts of the itinerary

Utilizing a travel segment as part of the itinerary prompts this product to decode the associate type code as the product icon.

For example, making the entry, TNZZMK1TUR27MAY/AN-WORLDSPAN in the Worldspan PNR, prompts this application to decode the associate type code TUR to become an icon designated as the word TOUR.

Portable Digital Assistant


To utilize MY Trip and More on a Portable Digital Assistant (PDA) device (e.g. Palm VII), a user is required to download a file which allows access to the My Trip and More web page.

This file is called a Palm Query Application (PQA). The PQA can be downloaded from the log-in page of My Trip and More. Once downloaded, the PDA user clicks the My Trip and More icon which appears on the PDA screen. It displays the initial My Trip and More screen.

Office Administration

My Trip and More provides trip information to travelers on behalf of Worldspan's travel agents. This information includes
e-mail confirmations, itinerary, weather forecasts for the destination or any desired cities, content information as per Worldspan's approved content providers, and product advertising relevant to pending trips. This data is displayed to the travelers and travel agents with the look of My Trip and More.


The Administrator Login screen can be accessed two ways:

  1. URL for the Travel Agency Portal:
    www.mytripandmore.com
  2. From home.wspan.com, click: RESOURCE CENTER, OFFICE ADMINISTRATION (under My Trip and More)


Logon

The initial Administrator username is the agency's customer number. The password is the agency SID. On subsequent accesses, the username and password the administrator submits on the Administration page should be used. The initial username is for a one-time access only. If the customer does not know their Customer Number and/or SID, they must contact their Worldspan Account Executive for that information.

Agency Information (Administration Page)

All fields denoted by a red * are required fields. The Customer Number and all associated SID's for the travel agency is
pre-populated.

SUBMIT = Allows for adding, deleting, and/or changing any of the fields on the Admin page.

NOTE:
The Response e-mail Address field is the e-mail Address of the agency. MTAM generates an e-mail (Customer Itinerary) to the address stored in the 5-MTT* field. If the customer responds to the message and the e-mail Address stored in the Administration tab is incorrect, the e-mail goes to reject and is discarded. No one is working rejects.

 

 

 

 

The Administrator has access to the Administration, Promotions and Traveler Information Tabs. The Administrator can also create Agent Administrators.

NOTE: There is only one agency administrator. If the USERNAME and PASSWORD are lost, a service request would need to be escalated to QA/QM.

Traveler Information Page

After accessing the Traveler Information Page, agents can search by traveler e-mail address or the first and last name of the passenger to view the the traveler profile or e-mail history.

top of page


E-mail Confirmation

The traveler receives an e-mail with a link to view their itinerary. The e-mail confirmation is sent only once. If a travel agency calls and wants to know what to do about an error received from their traveler's e-mail, have the travel agency administrator verify the customer's e-mail address in the 5-MTT field of the PNR in Reservations Manager.

top of page


Lost Password

Click on the Lost password link. The traveler supply’s their e-mail address and click Submit. The e-mail is internally verified by MTAM to ensure it matches the one on file. The password is sent to the traveler within 24 hours. We have no control of this process. For instance, if a travel agent contacts us and asks that we speed up the process or escalate this, we are unable to. This is strictly handled by MTAM code.

PNR E-mail Remarks

Worldspan creates a set of PNR fields containing e-mail addresses and a message line for the agent or travel coordinator to use if the agent wishes to include a personal message to the client. These new fields will not show in history or microfiche.

The MT remarks fields are displayed using *RA, *M, *MA, *A, *AD and *R.


The 5MTT field is mandatory. This field generates a message to My Trip and More (MTAM).

The 5MTA/5MTM fields are sent along with the MTT field. No message is sent without an MTT field in PNR.
