Pretty sweet not having to call United for these anymore.

  1. Good post for awareness. I noticed these back in March for my April 2013 trip. These partner codes are a little tough to find.

      • I find it very annoying they don’t have TG reservation numbers. I’ve called in a few times and they said they didn’t have it, but I tweeted @united and they DMd me the Thai confirmation number for one of my 3 TG trips (for the other two I called Thai).

        On a side note, I thought the “additional confirmation numbers” was quite obvious.

        • It is so strange that just this morning I was wondering y my reservation number for an upcoming TG flight is not showing up. Is there any easier way of getting the reservation number without having to spend time on the phone with them.

  2. It’s been around. A welcome feature I wish other airlines would provide. Comes in handy when you need to check-in or select seats on partner airline sites.

  3. My SQ confirm numbers don’t appear either (OZ does appear)

    But all was hunky-dory with the airlines for the confirm numbers I was given: trip involves UA, OZ and SQ.

    Just don’t know why SQ doesn’t show on UA site.

    • My reservation with a Singapore flight showed the Singapore confirmation number, same for Asiana and Lufthansa. Thai is the only one I have had issues with.

  4. Interesting point that you bring up, David. Haven’t seen it directly addressed on the blogs…

    No, I haven’t cancelled our Asiana F 747 flight. It just doesn’t make sense to me to cancel, given a different plane on an otherwise safe (good record) and top-rated service airline.

    I would, though, cancel anything upcoming on a 787 until I really felt the bugs were completely worked out. Just no interest in being a trailblazer.
