Etihad has the same process for the PNR as other Airlines. The PNR standing for Passenger name record is record for the database of the computer reservation system. It basically contains the itinerary for the passengers or a group of passengers if travelling together. The concept of PNR was first introduced by the airlines when they needed to exchange the information on the reservation in case of the passengers if they wanted to have detailed information of their flight. IATA and ATA has defined interline messaging for the PNR and other data through the reservation interline message procedure and is followed by Etihad Airlines. When a passenger books a ticket in Etihad, the passenger gives an itinerary that the airline agent or the travel website will create a PNR in their computer reservation system it uses and can the information about their flight can be shared by the customer as well as the airlines.
These systems are generally one of the largest global Distribution Systems such as Sabre or Amadeus. If the booking is done directly with the airlines the PNR can be in the database of the Etihad CRS. The PNR is actually the master PNR and the associated PNR is identified in the particular database in the record locator. The PNR of a ticket holds up its parts which are, the name of the passenger, Contact details, Ticketing details, Itinerary details which is supposed to same for all the passengers in that flight and the name of the person who made the booking. Other than that a considerable amount of information about the fare, the form of payment used, further contact details, age details, flyer data, SSR and optional service details is also mentioned under the PNR. The PNR status of a passenger can be found out at their official site.
