Bridge Labs API Release Notes

Bridge Labs API Release Notes

Fare Rule Merge with Metadata API

  • Added a new parameter: “detail” with values “true” or “false”. 
    The default value is “false”. When it is turned to “true”, the response will include the Footnotes and Rules sequence keys that were used to create the application restrictions. ATPCO subscribers can use those keys to look up application records from the Footnotes and Rules subscription files. 

  • Added a new parameter “geoSpec” with value “true” or “false”. 
    When the value is “true”, it will return the GeoSpec coding information, where applicable, for certain categories in metadata. A potential use for this GeoSpec coding information would be used to validate whether the restriction applies for a specific itinerary. For example, if the information is “Min Stay -> If (Location=WAS) 7 days”, the minimum stay only applies if the itinerary was via WAS. 

  • Bug fixes and performance improvements: Fixed the issue with duplicated fares in the API response.

  • Requested your feedback
    What “rich” information would you like to receive in the API response?

    • Branded data associated to the fare
      Such as the name of the brand and the ancillary services that accompany the fare

    • Dual RBD
      The Fare Class has the prime RBD, but if an airline is using Dual RBD for upselling and/or upgrade, there is a second RBD needed (held in ATPCO Rules data Table 999). If you didn’t receive the second RBD, there could be two or more fares in the same prime RBD that look the same and that you couldn’t differentiate. Currently our API response only includes the prime RBD.

Fare Rule Merge with Metadata API

  • Added Category 33 (Voluntary Refunds) implementation, which is enabled by default. Otherwise you may send a comma-separated list of the categories you want to receive in the request.

    Here is a sample of Category 33 data:
