Issue Electronic Miscellaneous Documents for Air Extras and Paid Seats
This workflow allows you to issue Electronic Miscellaneous Documents (EMDs) to confirm the purchase of Air Extras and Paid Seats.
This workflow also requires Air Tickets to be already issued for the flights associated to the Air Extras involved. For reference, see Issue Air Ticket workflow.
End-to-End Orchestrated Process
The below process describes the steps required to issue an EMD via stateful APIs, Sabre has since launched an orchestrated API that facilities this process via a single stateless API call.
This API is called Enhanced Air Ticket and is available in both SOAP/XML & REST/JSON.
The individual references are listed here:
Step 2: Designate your virtual printer using DesignatePrinterLLSRQ.
Step 3: Issue EMDs for the desired Air Extras and Paid Seats using AirTicketLLSRQ.
Step 4: End the transaction of the passenger name record using EndTransactionLLSRQ.
If the customer application is issuing both Air Tickets and EMDs altogether, it is not necessary to repeat steps 1, 2 and 4.
Only step 3 will need to be executed separately to issue Air Tickets and Air Extras/Paid Seats in different API calls.
