Where Did That Flight Itinerary Go?
Finally: you’re all set to go on that trip you’ve been planning. You booked the cheapest airline tickets, arranged for a pet sitter and packed your bags. But before you go, you want to check your flight itinerary, and perhaps print out a copy or two for yourself and relatives. Surprisingly, doing so isn’t always as straightforward as you would like, because every airline does it a little differently.
Following is a table for FareCompare readers showing exactly how to get to your itinerary from major airlines’ websites. If the site has an itinerary page that’s separate from the homepage, you can usually find what you want by going to that link first. You’ll usually need a confirmation or e-ticket number, name and/or credit card number to display your itinerary.
