Hi 4 all...

Can anybody give any clarifications about how can Itinerary have only one Customer in BDM.
My assumtions is that an Itinerary is pre defined by FBN like flying from London to Washington.
If i assume that an Itinerary is defined by Customer that chooses a collection of segments, how can an segment be in only one itinerary ?

Is that an mistake from FBN business analyst? I have been almost 2 weeks working in this solution...

I'll appreciate any clarification...

Rafael,

First, i�m happy to see more one brazilian guy in this forum. Welcome. Talking about your doubt, it is difficult to answer your question, since i do not know how do you see the flight reservation itinerary. But, i will try to help you with my concern for the scenario.

First, I don�t think that could be an business analyst mistake, because I see an itinerary as a product that an customer buys or create in the system. Think in the itinerary as an Order. One Order can have many items.

The schema 'fromCity' --> 'toCity' it�s not an Itinerary, this is an Segment. So, we can define the following schema:

* An 'Itinerary' is equivalent to an 'Order'
* An 'Segment' is equivalent to an 'LineItem'

Try to see the system with this point of view, and you work will became for easier. But, as I have said, it is my way to see the system. You are able to not agree with my point of view.

Good Luck!
