    New to me - a place to click right under the record locator if you are flying on another airline that will give you the record locator for the other airline. Hope they are right.

    This has been there for months. Several airline partners still do not show PNR's including SK (SAS). LH (Lufthansa) does appear.

    where do you see this, exactly? Is it only there if the partners are supported? I have an award on SQ and TG, don't see this anywhere.

    It was a line directly under the PNR - and when you put arrow on "other confirmation" the pnr for the other airline appeared (it worked for SQ), but when I go to the SAME reservation now it is now longer there:confused:

    It is very intermittent in terms of whether it shows or not.

    .bomb (old united.com) used to show it
    I haven't gotten it to show on any of my itins with other carriers post 3/3. Would love to have this implemented, however.

    SQ and TG aren't among the carriers showing this. I'm in the same boat.

    On the preview site is a note under the PNR "this flight contains partner airlines" and when you click on that it gives you the partner PNR.

    It's back for me tonight and does give SQ and TG for me - when it works.

    and when I went back to try to see if I could do a screen shot to show the picture of where it is it was gone again:mad:

    It's back and looks like this: I changed the relevant text to red
    United Confirmation Number xxxxxx
    This reservation contains partner flights. View additional confirmation numbers.

    I checked an a paid reservation I have also shows the LH PNR.
    But my award reservation which includes SQ flights does not show the SQ PNR. It was booked by phone, if that makes any difference.

    I have several OAL reservations and none give me the alternate confirmation codes. Nothing lost since I've never seen it.
