Follow the below guidelines for refunding, exchanging or voiding Delta-plated tickets issued by your agency.
Refunding a Delta-plated ticket:
Note: If a passenger is holding an expired ticket where the expiration date is now past date, it is truly expired. An expired ticket has no value left on the ticket.
Note: Travel agencies cannot issue a refund for a Delta non-refundable ticket, even if the passenger has a physician's letter stating they cannot travel due to their own illness or the illness of a family member. A refund application should be completed and forwarded to Delta with supporting documents.
Travel agents worldwide may process a refund on any wholly unused ticket where a flight was cancelled due to an Irregular Operation event (IROP). Partially used or flown tickets will need to be refunded by following standard refund procedures listed above.
Required OSI Documentation
Enter the cancelled flight number and the date that the flight cancelled in an OSI and process the refund via the GDS.
Please note: The OSI must be entered EXACTLY as listed below:
OSI DL refund due to IROP FLT XXX DDMMYYYY
FLT XXX is the cancelled flight number
DDMMYYYY is the day/month/year that the flight cancelled
Travel agencies may call 800-847-0578 to check the status of a refund.

Travel agents located in the United States, Canada, Bermuda, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands may issue an MCO for residual value when reissuing a nonrefundable domestic or international ticket.
The MCO must be issued as Nonrefundable/Valid Delta Only.
Agencies may issue an MCO for the residual amount less the ASC. If the residual amount does not cover the entire ASC, an additional collection for the remainder of the ASC must be done.
Any remaining value must be issued in the form of a nonrefundable MCO, Valid DL Only. Previously these transactions could only be done by a Delta CTO or FTO.
Agencies are not permitted to transfer/reissue MCOs into the name of another traveler. The passenger named on the MCO must present the document to Delta in order to transfer to another passenger.
MCOs are not replaceable if lost or stolen.
Travel agencies who originally issued a refundable ticket can reissue a new ticket and process the refund if the new ticket is of less value.
On July 23, 2007, ARC implemented a One Business Day Ticket Voiding initiative for their accredited travel agents, The industry wide initiative will reduce the void timeframe for transactions received from GDS's and reduce the voiding window from two full business days, following the date of issue, to one full business day, following the date of issue.
In addition, the void window for manually entered transactions will be reduced from one full business day following the date of issue to midnight on the date of issue.
For more details please read the Amendment to the IAR Void and Modification Windows communication bulletin. This bulletin has was posted on the Travel Agency communication bulletin on July 22, 2007.
Note: The expedited reporting window will not be reduced in conjunction with the reduction of the void window. Therefore the ASP processing and output schedule will remain unchanged.
