I have doubt whether in the change itinerary and prepared itinerary the FFMS needs to come into account in the use case even though it is not mentioned any where in the use case.

Can there be a separate use case defined like awards use case and that can be used as reference in any of the above use case or that shdnt be metioned..


If awards travel is referenced would that mean we can modify use cases as well .

Thanks

Good Questions !!!

I had four interface points in mind:

1. Getting Frequent Flyer miles at the time of booking the Itinerary as customer can pay for the itinerary using miles.
2. Getting Frequent Flyer miles as part of the "View FFM" use case.
3. Notifying FFM about completion of booking of an Itinerary.
4. Updating FFM about deletion of a segment as part of Change Itinerery

Can we not cover these under Assumptions section ?

Hi Dhiren,

I totally agree that you made a good point.

I want to state these problems in the assumptions. In details, just mention that it is not clear right now. So in case there has to be to do something, then their are some interfaces. Otherwise, there are database triggers which updates the FFMS' database.

The way I handled the FFMs I dont modify the prep or the change itinerary.
I update FFMS onyl if the itinerary is paid in the pay itineray.
This one nothing really gets changed much except for a few assumptions.
And it matches with practical application of the Awards systems for an airline system where the awards get added only if u pay for an itinerary.
Any thoughts.
Thanks

Agreed. But don't you think we need to address the situation where Change Itinerary causes a segment to deleted causing reduction in the frequent flyer miles.

Well if unpaid itinerary is changed not an issue becuase then FFMS mileage gets updated only at the payment time.

Under your assumption, can we do itinerary changes even after an itinerary has been fully paid for.
I was not considering this case. It is confusing how to include this in the current solution.
Its not specified anywhere and for simplicity I may add some asssumption.
How do u intend to address this..
Thanks
Dhiren
