When checking in on flights to MAN I sometimes produce my passport, more out of habit than anything else. They never look inside it and always hand it back telling me it is unnecessary.

Even with etickets, they only need you to produce the debit or credit card you want to use to identify yourself with. It needn't even be the card you paid for the ticket with (the website lets you choose another card), and no further details are asked for. I could quite imagine them swiping the card without even checking what name is on it, and whether that name corresponded to the eticket.
