Amadeus Tip: How to Reserve a Seat using the Seat Map

This content is only available in this language.

Is your customer very specific about the seat they want? Not too far from the galley or the lavatories but not too close, at a reasonable distance from the exit, not on the wing so that their view is not obstructed but not completely at the back either? Amadeus Selling Platform Connect to the rescue!

The Seats and Services Catalogue is a pop-up window that allows you to request non-chargeable (standard) and chargeable services, as well as reserve a seat. It also displays the purchase conditions for each seat and service, such as options for refund or change, and additional information about the product or service that has been provided by the airline.

Some seats and services display images when you place the mouse over them, but this depends on the airline information that is provided.

How Are Prices Per Seat and Per Passenger Displayed?

Prices per seat and per passenger are displayed in a tooltip when you mouse over each seat that is marked as chargeable.

Prices per seat are informative and can only be displayed if a passenger name is added to the Booking File. Depending on the airline, itinerary pricing may be required before seat prices are displayed.
