BA E-tickets: Passport ID Number Necessary?

The fool in charge of me at work said I can’t leave work – even for literally 30 seconds – to obtain my passport, despite it being deadly quiet. (OK, so I am the only one working.) So, does it matter if I don’t put in my passport ID number when booking a BA e-ticket (LHR-MAA x CCU-LHR)? Or should I wait until I’m next working and so can type in the numbers?

I think you can use MMB (Manage My Booking) online to input/change passport etc details.

After booking of course.

At least for me, it asked for passport number etc as they weren't added in a CX-issued ticket. You can also edit this info. Just need the BA record locator.

Amadeus or BA's own PNR. Something like 2AB3CD. I believe Opodo uses Amadeus so it should be the same. Amadeus will say 2AB3CD/1A while BA's own would be like ABCDEF/BA.

I found the MMB to be very handy, you can change/choose seats there as well.

True - I did that recently for my parents bookings on BA - added their email address, mobile numbers etc. I think there was a provision to add passport numbers - but that's something you can always get done by calling BA.

So are you saying I could happily book it using Opodo.co.uk and then using the same site add in my passport number at a later date?

True. You will get the reference, then go to checkmytrip.com, log in, and you will also see the BA reference in the corner..

Thus far I have NEVER given my passport number with any booking I made (and definitely not a booking for India, I always gave my debit card details for etickets).. not even with klm.com for a trip to Canada via the US with NW.. you can always call the BA callcenter (maybe in India Big grin ) then and give it to them

Do take a printout of the eticket to enter the airport.. I had a lot of hassle (see my well-cited TR Big grin )

The number of an e-ticket is only for recovery purposes at check-in

One can enter:
ID number
Passport number
Driving licence number
FF number

(it depends on the carrier and/or the booking handler)

That reference works exactly as the 6-digits amadeus reference, and so on, you'll be asked to have a valid photo-ID needed to travel to your destination (and transits)

You can enter your FF number to do the booking and at check-in you will be prompted for your (i.e.) yor driveing licence if going to Ireland or your passport if going to the USA

Yes - you can book it on Opodo and the passport info using ba.com another time.
