Features

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

​​​Defects

The following Digital Connect Check-In defects have been fixed for this release.

The following sections explain more details about the new items.

 

Passenger Details When Flight is in PDC Status

Digital Connect Check-In APIs were originally created for Self Service Check-in, where the passenger details for flown flights are not shown. By design, Digital Connect Check-In /passenger/details API only returns segments eligible for check-in. A flight with flown (PDC'ed) segment is not eligible for check-in; hence, is not returned. 
Now, airline agents can view the passenger and flight details even in the segment that has already been flown. 

Return Passenger Details When Flight is in PDC Status

When the Post Departure Check-out (PDC) has been performed on the flight, the data for that flight is available to the airline agents only for viewing. Subsequently, all the operations (bag calc, issuance, etc.) must begin for the next active segment. Any actions (bag issuance/DOCS/bag calc) for the flown flight must be excluded.

Return Segment Disassociated AEs

When a passenger is upgraded to a new class, a new segment is created in the PNR and the existing AEs, associated with the original segment, are dissociated.

Ensure Consistency Between ESM and ACS Seat Map Details in DCCI Response

Digital Connect Check-In receives Seat Map details from two sources - ESM or ACS, depending on the path. But there are inconsistencies between the data from these two downlines and some seat properties are found missing in the response Digital Connect Check-In  receives from ACS. So, when the seat map details are received from ACS, Digital Connect Check-In must retrieve the missing information and return it along with the Digital Connect Check-In seatmap response which should include all the applicable seat properties that must be returned from ESM.

None

Limitations

None

Populate Redress Flag

The Redress Control Number (redress number) allows the Secure Flight, which is a behind-the-scenes program that streamlines the watch list, to match travelers with the results of the redress case. 
When a passenger travels to/ from the country which uses Secure Flight program, Digital Connect Check-In sends the Redress flag in itinerary part in Passenger Details response, to prompt the UI to show the Redress Number.
