When a flight is awarded, the specs don't tell anything about if I have to substract the mileage account with the value of the awarded flight.

Shouldn't the Frequent Flyer database be accessed in read-only mode?

Thanks.

That falls in the category of something you need to decide on your own, and document what you decide to design. The only guide I can give is that you should consider what they're asking for and create your design accordingly.

Honestly, do we really need to get to the level of detail concerning whether or not to subtract miles in the mileage system? Or even to read the database in a read-only mode...?

Some of this stuff is not specified at all so then do we make some general assumptions like: "the mileage system recognizes that an award travel itenerary is completed at the end of the transaction and that it, internally, settles the mileage account"? This seems a little crazy to me but perhaps it's the best solution?

Theodore maybe you can shed some light?
