Thank god.

Its about damn time, although I understood their need to protect themselves against CC fraud the CVN would have been a sophisticated way to accomplish it that's been around for years.

Thank God. Last Christmas I went to fly back home to see my family and almost couldn't because the card that I had used to purchase the tickets with had been stolen a few days before. After some begging and pleading I convinced the agent to resell me my seat at the same price if I could get enough cash out of the MAC. It takes a while to get a couple hundred dollars out of one of those things in $50's.

Besides, I had always wondered what people traveling on business did when a corporate travel agency purchased the tickets for them. What if they didn't have the same card?

United 717 heavy, you're facing the wrong way. Any chance you can powerback to get off of my deice pad?

This policy has been yet another reason why I don't like United and the other legacy carriers. My wife and I have relatives in Texas, and we like to fly them up here and pay for their fare. Under this old policy, it was difficult to pay for their travel. I would have to go to the airport and get tickets and then send them to the passengers.

Well done, United. Now get rid of the $100 change fee and you'll be more likely to have my business again.

That's funny,of all my trips on UA (20+) I've only had to show my CC once - when my ROC-IAD flight was cancelled and I was rebooked on DL (727!!) .

The easy way to travel despite a theft or lost card is with a statement bearing the card number. I lose a check card at least once quarterly, and have never had a problem.

You lose a card quarterly and yet seem unconcerned. That would worry even me and I'm approaching senility rapidly. Not the money issue but the fact that I'd be such a dimwit to lose so many.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Funny thing though. I've never had to show anything but a valid ID to board a flight.



Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

Just purchase a refundable/unrestricted ticket and your problem is solved.

I think buying a Citation jet would be cheaper. But thanks for the suggestion. I'll stick to Southwest's low non-refundable fares that can be cancelled with no change fees and used at a later date (within a year of original purchase).
