When talking flight software you have to know Amadeus has a monopoly. Amadeus has an extensive guide on how to add SSR (Special Service Request) rows. Amadeus also provides a list of defined SSR codes. Using the SSR Code List we can see that CKIN is used for "Information for airport personnel". B2 and PS are the airline codes. HK1 is confirmed However ...

Yes. Everyone has their price. And contradictory to that, everyone has some levels of priciple. I've a friend who was messed around by Jetstar in Australia 7 years ago. He's refused to fly with them again and stubbornly sticks to this. Another had Emirates overcharge at the gate in Heathrow over a child stroller (they later refunded) - he had to pay an ...

It's pretty standard for most airlines to offer layovers up to 24 hours, and up to 4 hours domestically. This is another case where the power of ITA Matrix (https://matrix.itasoftware.com) comes really handy! In ITA Matrix, you can search for flights with a connection above a minimum length. Usually, if you search for connections longer than 12 hours, that'...

Searching for flights with stopovers (the term used to describe a long layover, usually over 24 hours, where you retrieve your bags and check them back in when you depart) is not an easy task. Airline policies are very variable in this respect. Some airlines do encourage stopovers in their "home city", pushed to do so by local authorities. They will often ...

Airlines websites usually doesn't show all options (they took several years to allow multi-segment flights). Try external website, where you can filter out easily too short connections (e.g. kayak), or just check the possible flights on different days (and check how many days you can do a stopover), then contact the airline. Unfortunately, in such way, it ...

After reading and interpreting the information in the official website, my understanding is that yes you are allowed to leave and come back later in the afternoon to see Corte Vecchia. Indeed it opens only in the afternoon so you will not be expected to sit outside of its doors and wait if you are done with your morning visits of the rest of the museum. The ...

This has happened to me a few times. If you explain the situation to management, they will usually help (at least in my case). There have been a few cases where they refuse to help, but most are pretty understanding and want you to have a good experience so you'll return. It's worth a shot.

The number of people staying in the room and the number of beds needed are not directly related. For example, I have shared hotel rooms with people whom I was happy to share a bed with (romantically or platonically), but I have also shared hotel rooms with people who I was not willing to share a bed with. Parents are often happy to share a bed with a ...

What the other answers seem to overlook is that you more than likely paid for this with a credit card. Agoda can say it's non-refundable all they like, but they can't keep you from disputing the charge with your credit card. You've paid for a room for 3 people. Agoda has made plain it will not be delivering that. Therefore, the charge is clearly disputable....

Assuming you read the details at the time of booking correctly, it sounds like there has been a breach of contract on the part of Agoda and/or the hotel. Consequently, the "non-refundable" rule should, in principle, be unenforcable. The simplest solution, then, is to cancel the booking without penalty (obviously, if rooms have since become more expensive, ...

You have an issue with Agoda, not with the hotel. Agoda sold you accomodation for 3 and you have confirmation for that. Whatever the agreements between Agoda and the hotel are*, is not your business. Disclaimer first: If the situation was as in the example in jpatokal's answer and that was shown to you when booking, you have no leg to stand on.** As ...

I am extremely frustrated by this situation. They have charged my for 3 people yet they are not providing a room that can accommodate my family. This really depends on the way it was advertised. In my experience, the listings on Agoda include the room composition in terms of beds / sleeping sofas / other sleeping facilities. If you are required to pay for ...

TL;DR: The hotel has provided what you paid for. Sorry. There are two separate but related things here: The number of people that can legally stay in a room. This is also known as the maximum occupancy, since it's often set by fire code and is usually completely non-negotiable. The number of beds provided, which is purely up to the hotel, and which can ...

Usually, they will request an authorisation on your card for the amount you would have to pay if you don’t show up without cancelling before the free cancellation deadline. That is usually the cost of the first night, though details may vary. it can sometimes be for 2 or 3 nights or a different fixed amount. In very rare cases it would be for the full cost ...
