AA Sends Me Wrong Ticket.

Thu May 23, 2002 8:56 am

I have booked a flight MIA-NAS with American Eagle. The ticket came in the mail and they gave me my ticket and sombody going to San Juan-MIA. I dont know if that is very common but it never happen to me. Also they just told me to throw away the ticket and they would give that person a new ticket.

Must be a computer error sending each other wrong tickets. Never happened to me either. Have you got your tickets booked MIA-NAS....??

Check to make sure they didn't use your credit card to book that SJU-MIA flight. I know over here at Delta they always send a reciept to the credit card holder. This mistake could cause problems.

I wonder if the person who is waiting for the ticket when they call the airline will be told that the ticket was issued and mailed and they are not RESPONSIBLE if it got lost in the mail and the pax has to purchase a new one. They will say they should have gotten an e-ticket.

I would not trust the airline to "take care of it" and just mail the other pax a new ticket. One reason to use a travel agent, and NOT trust the airlines!

I would not necessarily say travel agents are always hunky dory. You can not even imagine how many horror stories of people paying the travel agent then finding the agency closed one week later and them without a ticket.

Things like this happen. Before when I received my checking account statement it had some other ladies statement stuffed in with it.

tonyburr, it was an e-Ticket that was sent to me. also, my mistake. The flight is Miami-Puerto Plata, not that it matters though.

AA has screwed up on me once. I booked a ticket going DFW-ZRH-FCO September 2000, they didn't bill me for it until April 2001, and they billed me twice. That was a surprise, because I sometimes don't check my statements and I thought I had already paid for it.

This is a little different, but when i went to London, when i checked in, they accidently made it so my ticket was coupled with someone else. So it appeared i went JFK-LHR and JFK-SJU at the same time. It took about 45 minutes to sort out.

Plus travel agents don't always follow fare rules... don't worry... we get you at the ticket counter... if we feel like it.
