Give me a week or so to release the Ticket Ontology ;-)
It will be very powerful yet concise - allowing you e.g. to indicate  
that a ticket includes free transportation to the event, or expose age  
intervals and the number of admitted persons per ticket.

It will have ca. 12 classes and allow modeling tickets for all kinds  
of events, points of interest (e.g. museums), and transportation (e.g.  
air fare, trains, coaches).

Best
Martin
