Fake / Test booking
Do not create a booking to obtain a price, to print an itinerary or for testing. Do not create a booking without real demand. Do not try to block a class or compartment.

Bookings for testing, agency training, printing itineraries or invoices are only to be made in the training mode of the CRS, except when authorized in advance and in writing by EN. In case of violation of one of these points, an ADM will be issued for EUR 5.00 per Passenger and Segment.
Booking 10 or more passengers on at least one common flight segment within their itinerary to a common destination shall be requested as a group booking. Booking them in two or more PNRs is considered as “hidden” group, which is not allowed. Group bookings offer advantages to the agent and its customer. For questions about group bookings, please contact our Group Department. For “hidden” group, an ADM will be issued for EUR 5.00 per Passenger and Segment.
In case of over-claimed refunds; double refunds in BSP Link/manual refund an ADM will be issued to cover the difference.

Churning any action aimed to bypass ticket time limit, for example, booking several times the same segment for the same passenger will result in ADM with eur10.00 per segment per PNR for each passenger, multiplied with times booked
No show situations
Fictitious bookings leading to No-show will be penalized as these distort EN’s inventory and lead to non-saleable seats and avoidable CRS and operating costs for EN.
