Sabre Segment Status Code

Sabre Segment Status Code: The status code associated to segments in an itinerary can be grouped into the following 3 categories: Action Code, Status Code, and Reply Code.

Besides travel agents, airlines may make changes to the PNR. These will be reflected in the Reply Code of the segment concerned. If an airline has taken over the ownership of a PNR, changes made in the airline system will not be reflected in the Sabre system. This is one of the causes of the PNR non-synchronization.
