Tip of the Week: Modifying Fields on an Electronic Ticket in IAR

When ARC receives a straight sale electronic-ticket (ET) from a GDS and loads it to IAR, changes cannot be made to any field other than the following five modifiable fields:

  1. Commission
  2. Tour Code
  3. Ticket Designator
  4. Certificate Number
  5. Miscellaneous Support/Waiver Code

Any modifications to these five ET fields must be made within the next business day following ticket issuance. Please make sure to verify that other information required by the carrier (endorsements/restrictions, passenger name, form of payment, etc.) is correct before a reservation is ticketed in your GDS.
