Error on Total Seats Available in 12989 DDR AIISF EXP... As we can see that Total Seats Available Shows as SL -160, 3AC - 3 and 2AC - 4 but the Availability for SL on all the dates after 30/07/2012 is more than 160 in SL, more than 3 in 3AC and more than 4 in 2 AC... This is found in many trains... Any clarifications admin???

Re# 483905-3              
When Tot Seats are refreshed before 8AM on the opening day, the figure will be exact. But as it turns out, most people refresh after 8AM - any refresh after 8am will show less seats available, as some of the seats are already booked.
For this reason, please note the sign "" - this means "greater than". So, " 160" means that the SL class for that quota has "at least 160 seats". Similarly, " 3" for 3A means that 3AC has "at least 3 seats". So, as it turns out, the info shown is NOT erroneous. This site is NOT saying that SL has exactly 160 seats. We are just saying that it has at least 160 seats. Even this info
is useful to many people, rather than showing "info not available".
While we all require exact info, IRI does not own or generate the data - we are just trying our best to compile information from publicly available sources.

The feature just gives you an idea of the Total Seats available for that train, between the pair of stations and that quota. For example, if you get a WL of 5 for a certain ticket/class/quota/pair of stations, seeing that the Tot Seats available for that quota is 70 or 70 will give you an idea of its chances of confirmation. If the Tot Seats figure is 5, then you should have less confidence that the ticket will be confirmed. Our PNR predictors use this along with many other pieces of info, their experience, etc. to predict a ticket's chances of confirmation.
If you see " 160", then that means that there are at least 160 seats for that quota in
the train. So a WL of 1 with 10 days remaining for that journey, will have a high chance of getting confirmed.

Re# 483905-6              
Sir sometimes we can see total seats avbl is less than seats avbl after a week or two for same train e.g.
Hazrat Nizamuddin-Secunderabad Duronto Express/12286
Tot Seats Avbl 344 Avbl 16 Avbl 1 Avbl 14
for date 2012-11-12 Avbl 375 Avbl 149 Avbl 18 Avbl 16
admin should be able to increase manually number of seats or should be able to copy from the exist system instead of manual enter to avoid human error.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
