Do You Keep Your Boarding Cards?

Fri Mar 12, 2004 7:00 am

El-Al
SAS
Thai Airways
Australian Airlines (R.I.P)
Ansett Australia (R.I.P)
Qantas
Singapore Airlines
JAL
British Airways
Lufthansa
China Northwest
Chang An Airlines
China Southwest Airlines
Swiss Airlines
CSA Czech Airlines
Aerolineas Argentinas
TAME (Transportes Aereos Militares Ecuatorianos)
SAN
Air New Zealand
Northwest Airlines
Virgin Atlantic
British Midland
TWA (R.I.P)
Air Canada
Garuda Indonesia
Merpati
LOT Polish Airlines


Which ones have you kept, if at all?

Sure I do keep them! With the registration number of my aircraft written on the back of it.

I keep everything from every flight on which the logo of the airline is mentioned.

Yes, I have kept almost all of my boarding passes. As with Sabena 690, I use them to put the a/c registration number, runways used, and departure and arrival times. I later enter these into my logbook.

Yes, of course I do!!

Especially now with E-ticketing, and that's the only record you have that you've flown!

I have -

Qantas
Ansett
United

I may still have my East-West (stickers on a ticket), but I'm not sure.

Oh, and of course about 20 blank Ansett Australia / Australian Airlines boarding passes that I stole from the ticket counters at Sydney Airport during the pilot strike in 1990 or 1991.  Smile

Also picked up a TAA DC-9 Safety Card from the counters that day.  Smile

Cheers,

Trent  Smile

Have kept all my boarding passes since my first flight, which was

BEA flight 646 (I think - it is hand written) LPL-GUE, 23 July 1952. (The aircraft was Dakota G-AGZB).

My most recent QF4021 AKL-WLG 10 March 2004 (737)

Nope, throw them all away! Travel too much to want to keep 'em!

Thanks guys! You know, it's a real comfort- having shown my collection to some of my friends they all gave me this cock-eyed look as if I was off my rocker. It's comforting to know there are other nuts out there like me.  Big grin

I keep the special ones- i.e. no use keeping RNO-LAS, but i like keeping anything that has a special meaning to me. Most overseas ones get stuffed in the back of my passport. But i kept RNO-PHL because it was a nice trip. Depends..

Most of the times I throw them away immediately, the others times, well...when I wash my clothes where I put em in...

Kind regards,

I usually just toss my in my 'souveneir box' of travel memoribelia. When moving last month I stumbled across boarding cards of Canada 3000, Canadian Airlines, and the older branding of US Air and Air Canada. It was cool!  Smile

I keep them all but there are a few reasons behind doing so. If for some reason my Frequent Flyer miles don't post, I have the proof of my journey and will claim miles. Also I think they look rather nice stretched across my closet door. Here at ASU I have ones from SA)">AA, SA)">HP and SA)">UA. At home I have SA)">AA, BP, SA)">CO, SA)">DL KL, SA)">NW, SA and US.
