KiwiFlyer - AC discontinued Z class as an Economy bucket some time ago. It's recently reappeared, but is now a Discounted Business fare bucket on some routes and a Web Fare Business on others. Their new structure looks like -
J CABIN - J C Z as revenue, I for Aeroplan FF upgrades, D for rewards.
J C Z eliglble to earn COS bonus, but there are different policies for different routings in the internal AE scheme. As such, I strongly suggest a check of host FF schemes information to see if AC will pay a C COS on a route you are interested in, in particular.
Y CABIN - Y M U B H V Q L A R K N G P E T are revenue, W for rewards.
Classes that will need checking via host FF schemes as far as mileage earning potential goes are R K N G P E T, on both international and internal North American routes. Carribbean routes also have different earning policies.
S class seems to have gone as AC has dropped their Club Class product.
Anybody knows what "R" class is used for on LH/OS/LX? I've seen that it's business, however I only knew the paid booking classes CDZ (& J on Swiss) + I for non-paid travel (e.g. upgrades, awards) in business. Maybe this is for LH/OS/LX employee travel in business?
-Y,S,B are now Economy Extra for both intra-Europe and Intercontinental.
-Y,S,B should be removed from the Economy Class line as they are featured on the Economy Extra line above (Economy Extra is a distinctive service class with separate cabin on SK).
-The order of booking classes for Economy Extra should be Y, S, B (B is used for Economy Extra Restricted and has the least availability of the three).
-W and lower could be moved to a new line called "Economy (discounted)". Same service class as Economy but typically earn less points in most programs (25% mileage in SKs own EuroBonus).
-The A class should be first in line for Business Class. It is only available long haul and is a first class priced booking class which will guarantee any traveller a seat on any SK long haul flight up to departure. The availability of A-class is always 0 in GDS-systems.
