, when Eagle uses B-8 (hardly ever), the EGR is used for boarding passes and therefore, the BP
remains intact. However, down at B-15, you are given the stub back so that the agent enters the seat numbers in the computer (all manual, no EGR).
However, in LGA
, when I've flown AE
, the EGR's never look as though they are working, so they rip the BP
and give back the stub. One time, when the EGR was working, they still ripped it. Every station has their own variations.
The F/A checking the BP
as you enter the aircraft as N951U mentioned is normal.
