According to the formula I was 666th to check-in for my YUL-LHR flight a week and a half ago!! Wow..... I must have been on a A380 proto-type disguised as an A330...

I've never seen C. Only A and B, B being for CNX.

She was on a Latitude fare and gets a free snack. I assume this was a shorthaul flight?

The longer haul ones get a LT07 as they get a sandwich and snack.

Remember, those codes are often used to determine who gets fed up front and who does not. So if you see ML*1 or ML*2, and you've either changed to an earlier flight or been upgraded at the gate, you may not get a J class meal if they haven't loaded for a full flight.

On my BPs obtained through online check-in, I've seen both 0004 and 0005.
Means the order in which you checked in.

And what about G6? I'm hoping it means "lounge access" purchased.

What is difference between AC*A and AC*G

Why do I have AC*A on my boarding pass for an Air Canada flight and AC*G for a United? I could not see what the AC*A means. BTW I have not been AC*G (assuming it means Air Canada Gold ) for 4 years, but it always seems to have this on the pass when I fly united. Couldn't find the answer in any thread...
