This spins off from a long dispute I'm having here, but that's not really the point. Do you think that it's fair for airlines to deny you check-in if you don't produce the card used for booking? 1. What if your card was lost/stolen and replaced with one with another number? 2. What if a friend booked the tickets for you? 3. What if an agent decides to try and get away with IATA Resolution 890 and books you with one of their corporate cards? I never could understand these rather silly and draconian terms. Could anyone clue me in?
