Currently, Air Canada's website does not do to the best job of displaying the record locators/booking references for other airlines in an itinerary (both cash and reward booking).

Air Canada uses the Amadeus Altéa Passenger Service System (PSS). Other airlines that also use Amadeus as their PSS (and travel agencies booking in the Amadeus GDS) will use the same record locator as Air Canada. Additionally, some airlines that Air Canada has partnerships with that do not use Amadeus will still accept an Amadeus record locator on their website to load a booking. If the airline does not appear in these lists then they do not currently use Amadeus and do not currently accept an Amadeus record locator to find a booking.

Amadeus-hosted airlines that Air Canada has agreements/partnerships with

Airlines in BOLD are Aeroplan partners in some way (earn and/or redeem).

* ANA currently uses a separate PSS for its Japan domestic operations. Bookings made that include both international and domestic NH segments, or Aeroplan redemptions for wholly-domestic itineraries will still create an Amadeus PNR, but you will likely need to lookup the domestic flight information on ANA's website to then manage the domestic reservation. ANA plans to fully migrate to Amadeus for its domestic operations in the next few years.

Non-Amadeus airlines that will accept an Amadeus record locator on their website

Delta Air Lines - DL
Emirates - EK
United Airlines - UA

I have 2 aeroplan bookings on TK. I was able to find the TK PNR for both on cowtool PNR tool.

For 1 booking that has 1 passenger, I was able to load it up on TK app and select seat.
For 2nd booking that has 3 passengers, it's asking me for the 235 ticket # of each individual passenger in addition to the TK PNR #. Is there any way to find this ticket #?

edit: nevermind.. using the 014 AC ticket number of each passenger worked

Has anyone had success with selecting seats/online checkin on AC Codeshare operated by Aer Lingus? AC is telling me that the Booking Ref is the same for Aer Lingus as AC but it's giving me an error message on the Aer Lingus website.
