What is it?
This group of services provides functionality that enables airlines to present existing bookings for modifications by passengers. Passengers who retrieve bookings can add/remove seats, ancillaries and baggage or change passenger details.
Any changes that the passenger makes to their journey are reflected in the PNR. After each modification, the passenger's shopping cart is updated to show the old and new selections together with their prices.
