I am flying to BOM (Bombay airport) from JED (Jeddah airport), my ticket is showing VLEE6M fare basis. What is it?
The fare basis is often a short hand code for the airline to pack certain rules and conditions into a very compact from for gate agents. It varies from airline to airline, so if you really want to do know the details, you need to call them up.
- V: is the fare class: depends on the airlines. For United "V" would be a mid-range economy ticket (up-gradable)
- L: Low Season
- 6M: 6 months maximum stay.
When you booked you were given (and had to agree) to the exact fare rules. If you have a specific question about what you can or can't do with this ticket, I would look there first.
It's the name of the fare you paid for travel.
Airlines have a long list of fares between every city pair. Each fare has a different price and comes with different conditions on its use.
Fare names often follow a pattern, the first letter (usually) describes the prime booking code for the fare, and the other letters have some meaning to the airline. The only VLEE6M fare I could find on this market was issued by Saudia (SV).
As @Hilmar stated, VLEE6M a six-month max stay economy restricted fare.
