Refund
Refund is a manual process. You must check the Fare Rules to see, first, if the fare is refundable, and
then if a penalty is required. Once this information is obtained, the penalty, if any, is calculated into the
total refund and subtracted as appropriate. The Penalty will automatically update the Refunded To field.
Void
Once a ticket is issued, it can be voided within the guidelines established by ARC or BSP. The Void
Authorization Request page displays the pertinent information, including the SPRK Record Locator. Click
Submit to begin the Void process.

EMDs
Clicking the Standalone EMD icon will display a dropdown list that will allow you to select the Carrier.
This list is enabled only once a ticket is issued. Selecting a carrier will display an additional dropdown
that will show the types of Standalone EMDs available. A Standalone EMD is a document that will allow
you to record charges independent of a Service or other PNR function.
Reissue
The Ticket Image opens under the Traveler's original PNR. To reissue the ticket to make it match the new
name, click the Exchange/Reissue button.
A Ticket Exchange panel will open with the corrected flight and fare information. If there were more
than one ticket or flight, it would be necessary to select the correct radio button. Click Submit to
continue the Reissue.

Change of PNR Ownership

below.
Office ID field should be filled with the Target PCC. Note do not leave the originating PCC in the Office ID
field.
After successfully entering the respective PNR to Queue 5, of the targeted PCC, below message will be

The PNR can be sent back to the original PCC the same way as seen above.
Note If the Target PCC transfer ownership back to the originating office, that office (original) cannot
perform any ticketing transaction for the PNR. The ticketed PNR will reflect the IATA/ARC info
(reporting) of the Target PCC; they would be the only ones to process any other ticketing transactions.

No – Though there exists a workaround i.e. bridging as seen before.
