American Airlines require special provisioning to access paid seats.
AA paid seats are available through Sabre and AA's NDC API.
Receiving the provisioning to gain access to these seats depends on the GDS, so Gordian recommends allocating at least 3 weeks.
If you are going to source paid seats through a GDS, please follow the below steps to ensure your PCCs/Office IDs are correct configured.
Check you have access from the airline
Make sure you have permission from each airline to sell paid seats via a GDS, you can check this with your account manager or IATA partner.
Check you have access on each PCC
Check with your GDS account manager to make sure the content is enabled for the PCC you are using.
Enable Gordian access to each PCC
Setup access for Gordian to your PCC. For Travelport and Sabre this means you will be asking your GDS account manager to bridge Gordian’s PCC (share PCC info) to yours. For Amadeus you will be requesting sub-credentials on behalf of Gordian.
Gordian will configure the credentials
Gordian will configure the PCC setup on their side.
Perform test bookings
Make test bookings together with Gordian to ensure the flow is working as designed.
