Industry Codes/Abbreviations

Due to the great volume of information used in the airline industry, all airlines have typed upon standard codes and formats for the transmission of airline information and messages.

When passengers make their flight reservations, they provide information which enables us to better serve them. This includes items such as the number of people traveling together, special meals requested, special assistance required, etc. This information is then transmitted to the Flight Attendants (and other offices) through a teletype message called the Special Passenger Information List (SPIL).

The following list, while not complete, contains the most frequently used codes.
