Travel Reservations Trial Run. Any news? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

As are a lot of the GIs, I looked for reports of failure with Sabre, Galileo, etc. Haven't heard of any yet other than mentioned on thread earlier today with no verification. Anyone got news?

We didn't hear of any problems at work today. I tested SABRE and Apollo. I'll ask one of the testers (testers have direct logon account--I'm a developer so I don't) to nose around in native SABRE and Apollo for anything.

Lisa, the reservations that are made today would be for Jan. 1st, 2000. The reservations made tomorrow could be for Jan. 2nd. Most airlines can only make reservations 330 days in advance. In other words, you could NOT be making reservations for April, 2000. Considering that the general public has at least a little Y2K knowledge, most people would not be booking flights for Jan. 1st or 2nd of next year. (As someone pointed out on another thread, the one media report that people DO remember is the "airplanes falling from the sky.") Give it a few more days, and maybe we will have a better idea.

On CBS tonight they made a brief mention about it saying that everything went well with no problems.
