I'm also battling SCEA II.
After reading the clarifications from others, things are falling in place and there is more clarity now.
But some clarifications are required from the more experienced members and passed out members

* Do we need to handle the seat reservations i.e show the seat numbers so that the customer can choose the seat(s)? Some have done this.
Because, in the real world scenario, the seat preferences are taken during booking i.e. aisle or window and the actual seat number is given only at the time of check-in?

From the use-case description of Prepare Itinerary, I have the below two steps:

6 System responds with seat availability for selected flights

7 Customer selects seats

What I infer from step 6 is that the system responds how many seats are available for the particular flight i.e. for e.g. 20

as part of step 7, the customer enters the desired number of seats for e.g. 3

Is it okay to assume or am I missing something?

I feel it can be interpreted the way you have done ... and u can specify ur understanding in assumptions...

but its possible to book seat locations. from site as well, than just at chk in time.I did recently for AI fligt.
Since exam is based on old version so can't say confidently that they mean precisely seats than seat count or passenger nos.

both seem to me right, just right ur assumption and handle it accordingly.

Rashmi,
I tried this use-case on http://www.airindia.co.in/.
But I did not see any seat locations facility.
Origin city - Bangalore
Destination City- London

Where did you see this kind of flexibility? If possible can you send me an screen shot?

But as u have suggested, I will go ahead with my understanding stating my assumptions.
Handling seat locations will complex things as this depends on
* Aircraft carrier i.e Equipment
* Coach/First demarcation
* Handling cancellations
etc etc

rgds,
Rajah

Hi Rajah,

Read the requirments specially the pay use case details.
It is clearly mentioned what is required...seat no and not no of seats.

Hope this clarifies.

As far as I remember it was only after i paid for ticket and confirmed itinary, I got displayed with Seat option, with full aircraft view.so dont know how far were u able to browse without actual payment.
But consdering this , i thought i will provide this facility , but as u mentioned it got too complex and i have yet to decide if I can /shud show that much detail.It simply comlicated my class dig.. so yet to decide?
what have u decided?

Rashmi,
There is no much choice, we need to stick to the requirements and handle Seat reservation i.e. Seat row, seat number, seat class etc etc

But at an architect's level I think we need not get bogged down to the fine grained class level details, we need to idenfity classes and their main responsiblities and leave the rest to the detail designer/developer.
