Hi guys !
I have a few questions about the NWA online ticket purchase system.
Yesterday I booked a PUS-NRT-ICN itinerary, and I received a "Reservations air purchase confirmation" email with my "Northwest Airlines Confirmation Number".
Now here are my questions:
1) When I go to the "Manage my Reservations" section of NW's website, I can see that my two flights are written as "confirmed". However my "e-ticket number" is indicated as "none". Does it mean that my ticket hasn't been emitted yet ?
2) I tried to check the status of my flights in Amadeus' http://www.checkmytrip.com (yeah, I like to do that). For some reason whenever I enter the confirmation number sent by NW I get an error message "We are unable to find this confirmation number. Please validate your entry and try again. (8104)".
Does it mean that NWA doesn't use Amadeus, or is it that my ticket hasn't been emitted yet ?

Northwest had not assigned a ticket number for your itinerary yet. Generally the system processes trips in rough order of departure date. i.e. A ticket for DTW-MSP on Friday will be assigned a number before a MSP-HNL next March.
NW's system is called PARS and is maintained by WorldSpan. Try this to find your itinerary.
