Hello all,

I have a conceptual doubt and i need to clear it.

For example:

Search Criteria : MAD, LAX, 12/10/2006, 10:00

The system could return:

MAD - ORD 12/10/2006 11:00 14:00 FLIGHT1
ORD - LAX 12/10/2006 15:00 20:00 FLIGHT2

MAD - LAX 12/10/2006 16:00 FLIGHT3

MAD - LHR 12/10/2006 10:00 12:00 FLIGHT4
LHR - LAX 12/10/2006 13:00 19:00 FLIGHT5

I think the system could return a list of optional trips (departure,return) where a trip is a composite entity o one or many flights.

I think when the users searches for a flight(departure,return) he really searches for a trip. If we return a flight list how can we know which flight is combined with other?

I need some sugestions.

I think you're thinking in the right vein - think about how existing reservation systems work when you perform that kind of search, and what you'd expect to see. (Part of the exercise is, admittedly, coming up with how you feel the system should function for the customer and explaining what your assumptions were with regards to it.)

Best of luck!

Is the above flight reservation system asked in SCEA part 2 exam?
Where can I find that case study?

I am also confused how the price model will work for the above scenerio.
Is it same price for all three options or different?if different how do you calculate?do we need to sumup the prices for each flight/route?
Could certified people share your experience on this?

I think the price is per flight. The price is not the same for each flight solution. flight1 + flight 2 <> flight3.

Hi Adrian,

I think you need to define for yourself the meanings of flight, segment and potentially trip. Trip is an interesting one as it's not mentioned even once. Only the term round-trip is referred to in Prepare Itinerary.

Lots of discussions were dedicated to this definitions' issue in the past.

Regards,
Dan
