I would strongly suggest that you stay away from any sabre products.

Most of the GDSs offer similar products and there are some stand-alones too. They are decision support packages which look at projected traffic flows from origin to destination, using also past figures, and optimise the use of the capacity the airline can offer bases on its fleet. It's only as good as the data it receives from various sources.

Sabres "latest" flight planning system was supposed to be ground breaking and vastly superior to Jeppesen, the design team was feverously working in Poland for the last couple of years...... and before it was released, SAS purchased FWZ......
This seems to happen all the time

OK, but when we researched a new flight planning system, FW'z was an independent competitor touted by IATA as being amazing.

Sabre acknowledged that their flight planning system was inferior to Jeppesen, however they offered a wonderful replacement that was in "production"... Obviously they decided that it was more beneficial to buy FW'z than to continue writing their own software in Poland.

Finally, if you ask Sabre sales people about a standalone flight planning system, they wont sell it to you, they want you to buy the complete suite, and will promise total integration

We use mfs2, as its been called in former times, from the very first beginning on
As far as I know SAS is changing to this system now, THY changed 1 or 2 years ago and if you are still interested you should talk to them and probably also to the guys of former fwz in Vienna...

Anyhow, what Ive learned over the years is, that with every new system you buy and try to integrate, youll be some kind of beta tester
Support and callcenters of providers nowadays are evenly distributed around the globe for H24 coverage but often they lack of evenly distributed quality...

cheers
