Boarding pass codes
 
I know what AC*A means on my boarding pass but what about ML*2 ? Noticed it on my YVR-YYZ flight this morning.

Mainly used for meal assignments. Were you on standby for that flight?

ML*1 - Revenue customers and guest of AC who are upgraded
ML*2 Revenue and guest standbys
ML*3 Positive space pass holders who are upgraded or downgraded
ML*4 Positive space (confirmed) pass holders
ML*5 Space available pass holders

Ahh, that would explain it. I wasn't on standby but arrived at the airport a bit early and asked to be moved to the earlier flight (AC156 instead of AC162). Despite my Tango Plus fare, the friendly check-in agent was able to accomodate after a bit of poking around.

You mean you didnít pay the $50 change fee?

Similar to what Empress had posted in the past, this type of question/answer should really be put into some FAQ sticky... if I had a penny each time this question was asked... :) Thanks Prestige, I will now cut and paste into my own FAQ file :)

This is a cut-and-paste from one of Empressí posts into my own FAQ file. ;) All the credit to Empress. ^

Great info, thanks! ^ ^ ^

Does anyone have information on the codes in the "Airline use" section of the boarding pass? Tried the forum search but it wasn't very responsive... :)

On my BPs obtained through online check-in, I've seen both 0004 and 0005.

I thought the numbers in the "Airline use" section displayed a) the check-in sequence number and b) the code for either the agent or the kiosk who checked you in. For example: my last BP shows 0120 and YOW80210 ... I understood that to mean that I was the 120th person to check-in for that flight and that I used an Ottawa check-in agent whose id is 80210. If you use a kiosk, a K shows up somewhere in that code; if you check in through the web, it says AirCanada.Com

You are correct on both counts.

So if I check in through the web and it says "AirCanada.com 0005" I guess I was the 5th person to check-in online? ;)

Also, the letters A, B, C, etc. indicate the segments for your trips that day (A being the first)?

I've only managed to be first to check in once, and that was going YUL - YVR. Going YVR - YUL it's impossible to be first because of the connecting pax from asia.
