On reversal 500 Miles will be deducted from the Member accounts for voluntary cancellations; the balance of the Miles will be credited to the Members account. The penalty of 500 Miles will apply for all tier level Members where the member has voluntary cancelled the booking. Members must quote their FFP numbers when making their reservations or during the check-in process. After Flight Closure the airlines Departure Control System (DCS) generates a Frequent Traveller List (FTL). This FTL message is automatically sent to the Loyalty Plus Type B Address. This FTL message is interpreted and the programme rules are applied to the records that contain valid FFP numbers. This interface is “real-time” and allows members to view Miles allocated to them within moments of flight closure. The member’s booking class is verified by matching the FTL data received with the PNR data. PNR data is received daily. Redemption tickets are valid for 3 months only. Redemption Request Reversals will be allowed. This option will only be available if the member has not already used (flown) the redemption requested. The following will govern the refund of redemption tickets: Non-expired Redemption tickets will be refunded (Points and taxes) on a Reversal, but a percentage of the Points applicable for the specific Redemption will be forfeited. The charges for the different Tier levels are as follows: The charges for the different Tier levels are as follows: Blue Tier = Silver Tier = Gold Tier = Diamond Tier = Expired Redemption ticket will not be refunded. 25% 20% 15% No charge Reservations agents will include membership numbers using the applicable SSR entry in the member’s PNR. The SSR’s are: FQTV for members flying on normal tickets; FQTR for members flying on Redemption tickets and; FQTU for member who are using Points to upgrade their class of travel. Members will also quote their Air Botswana Frequent Flyer membership numbers during the check-in process.
