Different Types of Trips
A trip is an entire flight itinerary and all of the flights in that itinerary. A segment, or leg, is a portion of a journey between two consecutive stops. One itinerary can have many segments, or it can have only one.
Let’s take a look at the different types of trips.
– A trip that begins in one city and ends in another.
– A trip that begins and ends in the same city. Technically, when the term is used for faring purposes, the return trip must be a mirror image of the outbound trip, with same airline, same routing, and same class of service.
– A trip that involves at least three different flights, and returns to the point of origin.
– A circle trip with a leg missing. The passenger returns to a different city (other than the origin), or departs from a city that was not one of their destinations.
– ARUNK is an acronym for Arrival Unknown. ARUNK is used to indicate a surface sector in a PNR when the passenger has made his / her own arrangements between cities in an itinerary.
