Which US Airlines Still Have Ticket Jackets?

Hey all,

I was wondering which US Airlines still have ticket jackets available since several have discontinued them. I was hoping to collect a few before they are phased out. I know NW had some(picked up 10 at BOS a few weeks ago) and AS had a few as well. It was nice to have them to hold the boarding passes/bag tags in.

Thanks!

IIRC, most, if not all of them still have ticket jackets. They still have them so the customers have some form of tracking their bags. If your bag gets lost, the baggage service agent asks for the coding on the ticket jacket and can track the bags and figure out where they are.

Here at F9, we do have them. If you want one, you have to ask for it.

Ya most airlines should still have them. I got them without asking from WN, NW, AA, and UA so far this past year.

I just flew F9, and maybe its the station, but they gave me my ticket in a ticket jacket when they checked me in anyway.

Its probably the station, but the last 5 places I flew to, I never got a ticket jacket. Basically, I don't need it. The jackets themselves cost a lot of money to produce. They are used once and then thrown away after the journey.

I am hoping SM does away with the ticket jackets and issues the bagtags on the boarding pass since the boarding pass themselves have the barcodes on them. Saves paper and even more money.

When I flew YX last year, I had to beg for one. When I asked the gate agent, she looked rather perplexed considering there were only two boarding passes and a bag tag, which I think she stapled or something. I still like the ways of days gone by - having the boarding passes in a ticket jacket. If it's one boarding pass, I understand, but for multiple, it just keeps things organized.

CO Seems to be very hit or miss-- lately at hubs I've gotten just a scrap of paper with the Notice of Incorporated Terms and other fine print that's usually on the jacket stapled to the boarding pass, at outstations ticket jackets are much easier to come by.

It pisses me off when I don't get a ticket jacket or when I have to ask for one... I wouldn't mind if the kiosks printed boarding passes on cardstock, but the toilet paper that they use tends to be a crumpled mess (and frequently torn in half) by the time boarding comes around if I don't put it in a jacket.

Did you fly out of PIT? Those Skyway agents are completely clueless. Sad to see such a great airline thrown to the wolves in terms of service.  Wink

AA/DL/CO/NW/US have all discontinued ticket jackets, so any that you see are from depleting stocks.

I believe most, if not all, will still use them for those who have purchased paper tickets, because those people have not received all the guidelines and policies that go along with their ticket. If you have an e-ticket, you should already have all the info that is in the ticket jacket, so you don't need it again. I'm not speaking on behalf of all these airlines, but that's just what makes sense. Plus, that is our new policy at VS. I usually attach bag tag receipts to the itinerary, e-ticket receipt, or the small part of the boarding pass (if there is only one bag).

About a year ago. I have not seen one in months - including check-ins at BOS, MHT, GSO, CLT, LAX, LAS, ONT, SFO, MSP, ORD, ATL, MCO, IAH, SLC and probably quite a few airports I can't think of.

It's possible an airport has some old extra ones, but they haven't been producing them for some time.

All of the carriers I mentioned have permanently discontinued the procurement of ticket jackets, and are exhausting whatever stock they have left.

What the carriers who have gotten rid of ticket jackets ought to do is go the route of NW with a single boarding document that stays with the passenger in its entirety throughout his journey. That leaves plenty of space for 3 or 4 bag tags.

It's not uncommon for a family of 4 to take a trip involving 2 connections. That's 12 b/ps to keep track of (along with, in all likelihood, several bag tags), and a ticket jacket DOES make that a lot easier.

On my WN flights, all of them, I have received a ticket jacket. No big deal to me. As a matter of fact, I find them to be helpful in some cases when trying to hold onto the ticket and stuff. Just personal preference I suppose.
