Many people have been posting exact details of the flights you are on. In many cases, your names are easy to track. While most here are friendly, there are those who would love nothing better than to call the airline you are on, pretend to be you, and do stuff to the reservation.

If you posted there, edit your info to include fewer details.

Good idea Zrs70. I would assume the airlines would cross-check some of the information to make sure you are who you say you are. We need to remember that anyone on the internet can check out these forums.

Anyways, thanks for the heads up!

Not if the person calling is slick enough. A group of friends & I traveled to Las Vegas ... somebody who I didn't like (it was my 21st birthday dangit!) invited himself ... I wish I could've seen the look on his face when he found out his mother (  Big grin ) changed his destination to MGM at the last minute due to a family emergency -- they even waived the change fee for him  Smile.

Good thinking Zrs70!

You should realise no one put up their booking REF, and some did not even specify the flight number.

Malicious thinking may occur if we have a Bart Simpson or a Malcolm reading these very lines  Big grin

7E7,

most passengers don't even know their PNR. If you call the airline, the flight number (and if you find a friendly agent and tell him the date you are booked on he will most likely be friendly enough to look the flight up for you even without the flight number) and your name is sufficient to change a reservation. Thus, I share Zrs70s concerns.
