    Note:

1. Since UA/ NH8232 is a connecting flight of UA890 without the ET eligibility indicator, Electronic ticketing will not be allowed. Paper tickets are recommended for such issuance.

If users attempt to issue E-ticketing for segment(s) that is not

eligible for ET, the error response will be displayed:

Step 2: .1GK*

2- Long sell entry with an airline code:

Step 1: ØUA890Y20NOVSINNRTGK1
