    Hi Insiders!
    In CheckMyTrip I have on one of my trip in Miscellaneous "Protection Segment" with an airport and validity date in 10 months ... any idea what does it mean and the consequences for my travel?
    Thank you

    No consequence; you can ignore it.

    It is there to "protect" the PNR in case all the real segments get dropped for some reason. It keeps the shell of the PNR intact so agents can see the history and fix things as needed.

    Hi I have a similar problem. I booked a ticket via an online agency. The trip consists on 2 airlines from Star Alliance (Swiss and Aegean). The online agency gave me 2 PNR numbers (one per airline). When I look at my Swiss ticket (sencond ticket) under miscellaneous says my departure point and a date nearly 1 year in adavnce and then segment protection confirmed.

    Do you know what does it mean? Are the 2 tickets somehow connected? I'm a bit worried in case I miss the connection due to a flight delay, I won't have any protection...
