Features

Digital Connect Check-In introduces new features and enhancements in the following areas:

  • Remove AE Regardless of the Type and Status
  • Action Code not to be sent in UpdateRes
  • Enhance Infant PassengerType Support
  • Enhance Standard and Non-standard Baggage Bag Type Calculation
  • Modification of SSR DOCO (Redress/ Known Traveler Number and Visa)
    ​​​​

Remove AE Regardless of the Type and Status

Allow to Remove AE Regardless of the Type and Status 

Digital Workspace (DW)  as an agent facing application, must provide an option to remove Air Extra (AE) item from the booking regardless of the status or type of an AE. Now, Digital Connect Check-In allows removing the AE item selected by a DW agent.
To avoid breaking the logical handling of AE items, adhere to the following list of restrictions: 

  • You cannot remove an AE item which is a part of a Seat/ Ancillary Bundle. Instead, you can remove the whole Bundle AE. 
  • You can remove a Seat AE only after the seat has been unassigned from AE. A seat AE with an assigned seat is not available for removal. 
  • You cannot remove a Baggage AE that is linked to a baggage which has already been checked in.

Action Code not to be sent in UpdateRes

Action Code not to be sent in UpdateRes

In the past, when booking a non-zero priced AE (base amount zero, but tax amount non-zero), Digital Connect Check-In  called UpdateReservationRQ with ActionCode HK. This was an incorrect behaviour and resulted in ancillary payment not being collected.

With this update, going forward, Digital Connect Check-In will no longer send AE <ActionCode> to UpdateRes through the following services:
 

  • /ancillaries/book 
  • /baggage/book 
  • /ancillaries/update

Enhance Infant PassengerType Support

Support Infant Added as an Edit Code and SSR

Digital Connect Check-In supports infant passengers who have a PNR and infants who do not have a PNR but are added at the time of check-in as an edit code. The way the edit code for INF passenger is added and the structure of INF information varies between Airlines. Digital Connect Check-In has enhanced the current support of INF edit code to include different configurations and scenarios.
