Maximum payload restriction of 6 MB (Megabytes)

The OTA_HotelAvailNotifRQ can become very large, depending on how many updates you push. The system currently has a payload restriction of 6 MB (Megabytes). It is recommended to keep the requests small, but execute multiple requests. You should ideally push updates as soon as they happen in your system or as soon as you receive them.

The hotel availaiblity notification request updates the property availability for the property for which the hotel code was provided in the request.
