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?

Quoting Lufthansa747 (Reply 1): I think you can use MMB (Manage My Booking) online to input/change passport etc details.
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.

Quoting Lufthansa747 (Reply 5): 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
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 ) 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 )
