Default Established fares........Yes??

Baseline and Established fare blocks are showing up on the pairings.

I still haven't seen the "Established Fare" block filled in on any of my pairings, even after I've flown them. According to the contract, they're supposed to be published NLT 14 days prior to the DH. This month my mid-trip DH ticket actual price is over the Baseline fare by a little (slightly higher price - and ticket is priced in Euros).

I think the new contract should get me the higher fare (since I believe that will become the "Established" fare). Does anyone have any experience with this yet? Is this contract change in force now?

Bank credit for baseline vs established fares is phase 3.

Add baseline/established fares to trip display was phase 2.

Of course none of the new terms matter. They still don't take actual fare into account. My end of month DH in March, baseline $4052. That's the fare amount also listed in my expense report for March. Actual booked price through travel for the paring--$7019. Of course booked after the start of the bid month so no established fare. If you want to deviate, you need to be not be on Delta through Atlanta in business class.

I don't really understand this statement.

As I understand it (could be wrong), an established fare is always created for a pairing. Once phase 3 implementation kicks in, wouldn't your situation result in the higher fare being credited to your travel bank? (Assuming that higher fare was in effect when the established fare was set)

I think it's the baseline fare that exists when the paring is built. Then the established fare is the amount credited when the paring is assigned/awarded. If you deviate prior to the start of the bid month then you get the higher of the two.

HOWEVER, neither of those amounts are the "actual" fare. So even when they give an established fare (which in theory should be more correct since it is a more recent look at the current fares), the amount has no real correlation to the actual fare that corporate travel books. We never get that amount.
