Check on Your Airline Reservations

Taking a trip soon? Will you be flying? If yes, don't just sit back and do nothing while your date of departure approaches.

Check your flight arrangements on a regular basis. This is easy to do if you have the PNR, the six character code assigned to each reservation. Based upon my experience with U.S. airlines, each of their websites has a place to enter the PNR to review the reservation.

If you don't have the PNR or have trouble finding out how to do it on the website, simply call the airline.

Why do I bring this up now? Because a friend is departing on a trip in about a month, went to check their air arrangements, and found out that their returning flight had been canceled. A bit disconcerting but of course the airline will make other arrangements for you. But better to find out ahead of time......instead of showing up at the airport for a non-existent flight.
