    RFE Review. Apologies we have not been able to prioritize the delivery of this enhancement request. We have published samples for this format, but not directly within the product.Quite some years ago for example there is this reference work:

    We will continue to monitor this RFE for popularity and will still look to bring forward a tutorial gallery entry in future. Status is maintained as uncommitted candidate.

    Thanks for raising this requirement. Given that airlines rely on the SITA MATIP network to exchange Type B messages with other airlines, we appreciate the relevance and importance of such a sample. We are continuing to broaden the Broker's appeal with industry specific content (e.g. as demonstrated with the Healthcare Connectivity Pack) and are looking to complement this with content for other industries, such as airline.
