Quoting Taity (Thread starter):
can provide any API information online

Yes, all of it, IIRC. More can be found here:

3. Advance passenger information

Many governments around the world require some passport and travel information from airlines about the people flying into their country. This Advanced Passenger Information, sometimes called API or APIS, is collected by us before you check in, through Manage My Booking, at an airport check-in desk or kiosk.

You will be required to supply some or all of the following details:

• your full name (as it appears on your passport)
• your date of birth
• your gender
• your nationality
• your passport number
• your passport expiry date
• the country that issued your passport
• your country of residence

Additionally, on US flights, you will be asked for:

• the destination address of your first night’s stay
• Alien Registration Number (Green Card) for those who have US residency
• redress number if you have one (this enables travellers who have experienced problems entering the US to avoid future difficulties — learn more at
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
