What are "anx9c1s6 type fares", as seen on the following screenshot I got from britishairways.com while making a booking?

    I can't say for certain but it looks like it might be a big in the website - have you sent that screenshot to BA? – skifans Nov 17 '18 at 12:01
  • The last part of the information (‘no earlier than the first sun’) makes no sense either – Traveller Nov 18 '18 at 0:05

    @Traveller: I interpret that to simply require Saturday night stay ("[return] no earlier than the first sun[day] after arrival"). That was consistent with the price graph I was shown. – NPE Nov 18 '18 at 3:51

    It looks like a fare code. They are usually printed uppercase, but fare rules are usually printed all upper case, so they probably lowercased all the text including the fare code. It’s a bit long compared to other fare codes, but probably still a possibility. It would be in booking class A, so discounted first class. One would need to check available fare codes on BA to be sure. – jcaron Nov 18 '18 at 10:48
  • @jcaron: Thanks for the pointer. I think you may be right and this is indeed a lowercased fare basis code. I'd be curious to deconstruct it (beyond it being discounted first class, which indeed it is), but I'm struggling to find any information online on how to decode the rest. Would appreciate any pointers. – NPE Nov 18 '18 at 16:24
