Last week, WN announced to their employees that on September 1st, paper ticket agreements made with carriers for NRSA ZED travel would be terminated in favor of moving to an all-electronic pass request system (myIDtravel). This will result in the loss of nearly 50 pass agreements. They cited an IATA mandate that calls for the elimination of ZED paper ticket issuance.

I was just curious if anyone can give me more information on the mandate. I've been trying to find the exact verbiage, but I have only been able to dig up the 2008 mandate that ends paper tickets for revenue passengers. Thanks!

As a nonrev, I love the ease of eZED and not having to deal with calling to list, buying a paper ZED, longer times to refund, etc.

Most of my travel is domestic, and my carrier is now down to just having UA as a paper ZED. So much easier to get around in case of needing to use it.

AA just began issuing eZEDs. I think we were the last major airline to only issue paper tickets so this makes sense now that no one really is doing it.

Quoting mhkansan (Reply 2):

We just got eZED for AA at Delta a couple of weeks ago. Same for US.

Are you sure you will lose all paper ticketing? I'm a United (well, Ex Con actually) retiree and we have not lost any carriers as far as I know, but several have gone e-ticket. The e-ticketing is actually a far better deal in that you can buy the tickets as you need them. You can do it while sitting at the gate if you have an internet connection.

UA still issues paper tickets for some carriers, but e-tickets for the rest.
