How to Cancel Sabre PNR

Sabre PNRs can be a lifesaver for travelers, but sometimes, plans change. Knowing how to cancel a Sabre PNR is a valuable skill for any globetrotter. In this guide, we will walk you through the process of canceling your Sabre PNR, addressing common concerns, and providing insights from our personal experiences. Let’s get started!


An existing itinerary can be modified either by the airline or by the travel consultant. When an itinerary has been modified by the airline, it is important that the travel consultant identifies whether the PNR was taken over or localized by the airline system. If so, the travel consultant must be aware that any further changes or modification to the localized itinerary will not be generated to the airline.

Sample Itinerary Field:

Scenario 1: Cancel a specific segment.

X1–6Will cancel itinerary from segment 1 to 6

XIWill cancel all itinerary segments in the PNR

X4/6-8Will cancel segments 4 and from 6 to 8

When flight segment is cancelled, an insert mode automatically exists.
