Fare Basis Codes That Suck

Allow me to pass along a bit of complete geek airline humor.  See below, an un-retouched screengrab from a travel agency search for a Royal Jordanian flight.  Note the fare basis code (I told you it was airline geek humor).  Even so, funny that no one ever caught this. (click the image to view…)

  1. BHOWJO is a common one-way fare on Royal Jordanian. But I don’t recall ever actually seeing a seven character fare basis from that airline, not that it wouldn’t be possible.

    A bit of searching hasn’t turned up a BHOWJOB fare basis… Let alone one where the H is replaced by an L (though the fare could obviously have been pulled).

    What route is this?

    The only route references in the graphic above are for FLL-EWR which is obviously not Royal Jordanian…


  2. I am intrested in knowing the air line ticket details like fare codes, fare basis and fare calculation.

    Could some one educate me in this field.
