Why passenger got the different price between Mobile message and ticketing information after they finished online reservation?
Due to our online reservation has adapted to SITA CCA authorization system to obtain approval code, that it will automatically convert the currency to US dollar in order to get approval code. Some banks may send instant message to passengers immediately
when this process begins to take place. Since the currency conversion depends on the international exchange rate, which changes constantly, the actual exchange rate that applies to the payment depends on when the confirmation has completed. There may be some
minor differences in between the mobile message and the actual payment because the instant message is calculated in US dollar and converted to local currency via issuing bank setting.
