->e-Tickets :

For electronic tickets (e-tickets) as used by airlines, see electronic ticket. For the Disneyland fanzine with a similar name, see The “E” Ticket.

The phrase E ticket (or E ticket ride) refers to an unusually interesting, thrilling or expensive experience. It derives from the admission ticket system used at Disneyland and Magic Kingdom theme parks before 1982, in which the E ticket (officially termed “E coupon”) admitted the bearer to the newest, most advanced, and/or most popular rides and attractions.

->CRS : the Computerized Reservation Systems

A computer reservations system (or central reservation system)[1] (CRS) is a computerized system used to store and retrieve information and conduct transactions related to air travel. Originally designed and operated by airlines, CRSes were later extended for the use of travel agencies

Major CRS operations that book and sell tickets for multiple airlines are known as global distribution systems (GDS). Airlines have divested most of their direct holdings to dedicated GDS companies, who make their systems accessible to consumers through Internet gateways. Modern GDSes typically allow users to book hotel rooms and rental cars as well as airline tickets. They also provide access to railway reservations in some markets although these are not always integrated with the main system.
