AA reward on Qatar
Hi I got an award ticket for my son using AAdvantage miles flying Qatar. I was wondering if Qatar might request him to show my credit card that the taxes were paid on an award ticket?
I would say it’s unlikely. Even when there are instructions to that effect I’ve never been asked for the card at the airport. If you are nervous you might consider giving him a photocopy of it I suppose.
Of the 50 plus times me and my family have flown QA, we have never been asked to show a credit card. Often, when the wife and kids are flying without me, I book it using cards in my name.
Even when there are instructions to show a credit card, it’s almost always okay to go to an airport counter ahead of time and show your credit card in conjunction with the reservation so they can note the record.
