However, operations in the other weeks occur with such frequency that the breaks in service are not of suficient frequency and extent to compensate for the substantial number of flights conducted with frequency over a substantial period. The flights are not irregular within the meaning of Part 291.

(8) Four large irregular air carriers agree to utilize the services of a single ticket agency, XYZ Ticket Agency, Inc., with respect to service between points A and B, and to furnish to the agent the dates upon which each will operate between A and B. If the flights, considered in combination, of such carriers between A and B reveal a pattern of operations similar tc those shown in examples (1) through (7) above, the combination of flights constitute regular air transportation and each such carrier is deemed to be conducting regular operations between A and B.

Although two flights (on the 26th and 28th) were operated within one period of less than one week, this frequency was compensated for by the breaks of at least a week between the other fights.

The flights do not exceed two per week and the 2-month period includes two definite breaks in service. However, in view of the frequent rendition of service on Tuesdays and Fridays the breaks in service and comparatively small number of flights operated are not sufficient to destroy the pattern of regu. larity. The service is not Irregular within the meaning of Part 291.

Failure to reply within a period of 60 days after receipt thereof, or return of such letters unclaimed, shall automatically terminate all rights under such letter of registration.

Such tickets shall also be signed at the time of sale by a duly authorized officer or employee of the carrier or agent. On or after the date of flight, tickets shall be validated by the carrier in some appropriate manner on the face thereof to indicate that either the transportation service covered thereby has been rendered or appropriate refund has been made where no service or only a part of the air transportation service has been rendered. In those cases where the carrier is by law entitled to transport any
person at a free or reduced rate a pass shall be issued to such person, with the exception of those persons described in § 223.3 of this subchapter, prior to departure of flight and taken up by the carrier at the destination point. Each such pass shall have printed thereon the name and address of the carrier, and shall contain on its face the name and address of the passenger, the date of the flight, origin and destination points, and shall indicate the status of the passenger entitling him to free or reduced rate transportation.
