Ancillary services can be provided in several steps of a shopping process, depending on an Airline’s implementation and message flow. Ancillaries are presented either as:
an integral part of each offer being constructed
or as 'A-La-Carte” Offer Items, which can be later selected and merged into an existing Offer
Ancillaries within regular Offer structures are not required to be mandatory (using the Mandatory indicator). This means the total price at the Offer level would not include these optional Offer Items. If set to mandatory (as would typically be the case with the flights within the Offer), the total price would reflect them and any other mandatory Offer Item within the Offer. Each optional ancillary Offer Item is, however, priced, which would later allow the Seller to calculate the payable amount of the mandatory items, as well as the optional ancillaries they select through OrderCreateRQ (or optionally OfferPriceRQ, if this step is required prior to Order creation).
Airlines can construct ancillary Offer Items directly via AirShoppingRQ/RS (and OrderReshopRQ/RS, in case of servicing), or separate them into the ancillary-specific message pair ServiceListRQ/ServiceListRS, depending on their implementation. Seat-related ancillaries, typically presented through the SeatAvailabilityRQ/RS message pair, are technically also A-La-Carte ancillary services which need to be selected in later steps of the shopping process and combined with their counterpart flight-related Offers (through OfferPriceRQ or OrderCreateRQ).
