Airline reservation - definition

An "airline reservation" is a legal contract whereby an airline undertakes, in exchange for a certain amount of money, to provide a seat to a specific passenger by plane on a specific flight from one specified airport to another. The plane is scheduled (but not guaranteed) to leave at a certain time and touch down at the destination at a certain time. Whether the airline reservation may later be changed varies from ticket to ticket (typically, low cost carriers are less flexible in this regard).

As an example, somebody may make an airline reservation with British Airways to fly from London to Johannesburg on flight BA0055 on the 25th April 2008, scheduled to leave London Heathrow at 1905 and arrive in Johannesburg at 0650.
