Hi,

I need to understand why is Equipment shown in the BDM ? Why cann't a flight have direct relationship with seats ?

Coz you asked this , I will give you my understanding. In real world seats layour differs by the type of plane (Equipment?) I guess that is why they are not directly linked. I remember selecting my seats online which had different seat layouts for diferent segments of the itinerary.

Thanks for the response Nitin.

Still not understood ? Can you give a little bit more explanation?

Hi,

I'd like to share my thoughts on this.

I believe it would be more appropriate to link seats to an aircraft (equipment) than to a flight to provide better flexibility. An airline could upgrade its fleet but maintain the same flight number. For example, I have flight 5J803 that uses an Airbus A320 with a seating capacity of 180 seats. If I get a direct flight-seat relationship, I would have a seat number like 5J803-180. What if the airline switches to an Airbus A318 with a seating capacity of just 117 seats. Seat number 5J803-180 will obviously be invalid because there is no 180th seat on the new plane. Linking seats to a specific aircraft would ensure that your seat number would always be valid for a specific flight because it's dependency will be on the aircraft rather than the flight.

I hope this makes some sense.
