Getting technical: how it works
When a booking is changed/modified by the traveler, the EMD of the booked services will be disassociated from the ticket. This means there is no more link with the PNR via the ancillary service. At this point you, the travel agent, need to:
- Rebook the ancillary service on new itinerary;
- Reprice the ancillary service in exchange of the original EMD, and;
- Reissue the EMD to re-establish the link with the ancillary service in PNR and with the ticket
