As of 19.2, full Order cancellations are carried out by entering the OrderID within the following function:
This is a shortcut to cancelling all OrderItems within an Order, but the mechanisms for calculating refundable amounts and penalty fees are identical to the cancellation of single OrderItems, as described under the capability “ORDCAN“ capability.
The OrderID is then repeated in OrderChangeRQ to confirm the cancellation:
Full Order cancellations do not allow the passenger to retain residual values in the Order for further reshopping - this function incurs a cancellation of all services and processing of any applicable refundable amounts.
Note: Implementations based on releases prior to 19.2 may still submit OrderCancelRQ/RS message pairs for this capability. Another acceptable workaround would be to use OrderReshopRQ/RS and OrderChangeRQ/OrderViewRS message flow to cancel every OrderItem within an Order. This would still result in the cancellation and refund of an Order, but the Seller would have more visibility (thanks to the OrderViewRS) on amounts and details regarding cancelled OrderItems/Services and associated payments (or refunds from an Airline).
Note - pre-21.3 implementations may still use OrderCancelRQ/RS, though this is not recommended, as the function for full Order cancellations has been moved to OrderChangeRQ as of 19.2+
