HMFindlayDoes per pax mean per person? I always see this thing but i never know what it really means Shame on meI've never seen this. Pax is Latin for "peace". Therefore per pax means nothing to me.

I guess the use has been extended to the case when "passenger" is not in the plural, then to "per person". I just did a research on Google, and found that it is often used in relation with "packages" (holidays etc...) Maybe it has extended that far? (pax > package(s) ?

Pax — an abbreviation for "passengers" used by the travel industry. Some hotels now use it to mean individual guests opposed to rooms
