Unissued reservations:

WS segments will be displaying UN and TK status, please change to HK.

To complete the issuance of the reservation, you will need to re-price it and save the fare. The PNR will price with the new class mapping already loaded.

Issued reservations:

Classes (RBD’s) are or will be changed to the new/updated so that the PNR can price correctly.

You will be allowed to re-issue affected LATAM tickets as “INVOL” with the following conditions:

  • Without penalty
  • Keeping the original flights
  • Keeping original fare construction
  • It is mandatory to add the following note in the ticket endorsements box of the ticket: "INVOL RBD WS"

Voluntary changes for trips after 20 September 2018:

Permitted as long as the fare rules allow it. Collection of penalties and/or applicable fare differences if required.

Exchange reissues: The change will be made by reissuing with the new class, at the applicable corresponding fare.

Historical reissues: If the original fare applies for the change, you must reissue the historic fare using the new booking class with historical fare basis.
In case the original fare does not apply for the change, the historical fare that complies with the change should be taken into account. In these cases enter “RBD WS” in the endorsement box.
