Thanks Cubby. I didn't think you would have needed ID as it was "pre-terrorism" as we know it today and security wasn't that tight. Having said that, even today it's not impossible to fly domestically under someone else's name (here in Australia anyway). My partner is a recruiting officer, or scout as you call them, for our major league football and they used to use frequent flyer points to fly people around Australia. It was simple, the ticket was purchased under a persons name and that person would go to the airport and collect the ticket and then hand it over to the person that was flying. You don't have to show ID once you have the boarding pass. Apparently it can still be done even now with E ticketing for the same reason. Joe Blogs sitting beside you could actually be Osama Bin Terrorist. Scary hey? I would still like to know if Anna could have flown for free if anyone knows. Annasmom?
