Inserting and Re-sequencing Galileo PNR Segments : An itinerary should be in city and date sequential order. There may be times, however, when you need to insert a segment or re-sequence segments in the itinerary.
Travelers sometimes add a side trip to an existing itinerary or fly into a city and then continue their journey by flying out of a different city. When that happens, the portion of the journey between those two cities that is not flown is called the surface portion or ARNK that stands for arrival unknown.
Inserting and Re-sequencing Galileo PNR Segments
This section explains how to add flight segments, insert an ARNK, and re-sequence
flight segments in an itinerary.
The function identifier to insert a flight segment or ARNK is: /
Adding Flight Segments
You can insert flights into an existing itinerary.
To insert a flight segment, use the following steps:
1 – Enter the function identifier followed by the segment number after which it is to be inserted.
Note: /0 inserts before the first segment in the itinerary.

Display the Booking File to renumber the segments in the itinerary.
The new segments appear numbered sequentially.
Adding Surface Segment / ARNK
You can insert ARNK into an existing itinerary in a single format.
To insert ARNK, enter the function identifier (/) followed by the segment number it is to be inserted after, end item, and the letter Y.
Example entry: /3+Y
ARNK now appears in the itinerary.
You can change the order of segments in an itinerary. This is useful for itineraries where the segments are not in sequential order.
To re-sequence the segments in an existing itinerary, enter the function identifier (/) followed by the segment number it is to be inserted after (3), slash (/), and the segment number to insert (2).
Example entry: /3S2
(Insert segment 2 after segment 3.)
