Deciphering Airline Comment Codes

Like any self respecting skynerd I use Expert Flyer when I travel to get more information about seats, upgrades, and what’s going on with my flight. I find their Flight Status function especially useful for getting more information, especially during delays when the “Additional Comments” section can be much more helpful than the gate agents themselves.

I’ve noticed that these comments sections usually are self descriptive, but sometimes they use obscure codes that can be hard to decipher. As I run into more of them and figure them out I’ll update this page.

Code Meaning Example
