SITA's New IBE costs More Money

I happened to be working on a project looking at IBEs. Over the weekend SITA's new IBE went live (after being down for more than 36 hours). On its return the availability of fares dropped a whole class. It went from 4 to 3. As a result there are now a lot of people who thought they could buy tickets at the lower fare which has now disappeared.

It is clear there are going to be a few teething problems with the implementation of the new IBE. However its all under SITA's control - they have the pricing, the IBE and the back end Res System

So let's hope it settles down.

I will be watching!!!
