Note: the first rate type found for each room will be set to "Updates Availability"
Availability will be sent across for this mapping, and when we are trying to set availability to less than the contracted availability, this is the last rate plan that will be closed.
When trying to set the allocation for a room to a value less than the contracted availability, the channel manager will try to closed all rate plans that are not set to control availability first.
Expedia will report errors if we try to update the incorrect rate types.
