Changing DOB on Partner Reservation

Hi. If a birth date is accidentally entered incorrectly on a partner reward reservation, can AS change it? Or does it require canceling and booking a new flight? Asking for a friend.

Call AS customer service first. It should be easy to change/ edit. But you might have to call the partner.

If you're checking bags, you can just ask them to do it at the check-in counter (speaking from experience as a person who once entered her boyfriend's incorrect birth date).

Do not wait until check-in to update this, especially with a partner. Contact AS immediately to update the info so you don't have any check-in issues.

I've done it without issue and didn't have any problems checking in, but you're probably right because it's always better to be safe than sorry.
