BA flight on Checkmytrip

I'm intrigued about two notes on my forthcoming booking lhr>sin>syd>bkk>lhr in F on my checkmyfile printout.

They are both listed under miscellaneous:

Roberts Field (Redmond, Oregon, USA)
Sunday, May 06, 2007

Notes
PEROW
and

Corner Bay, Alaska, USA
Sunday, May 06, 2007

Notes
CREDITNN
As I'm not going near either places - just wondered what they were about?!

Is this a mileage booking? Roberts Field has a code of RDM, which is being interpreted incorrectly in checkmytrip as an airport code. I suspect RDM stands for redemption.

Likewise Corner Bay has a code of CBA (not sure what the significance of this is in the booking) and again checkmytrip 'renders' this incorrectly as an airport code.

There have been a few threads in the past that commented on this, but none that explained why they are in there in the first place that I can see...

Hope it's ok to bump this thread. I have done the relevant searches.

The comments that appear in the Miscellaneous section of bookings when looked up on checkmytrip.com:

So it's clear that these codes are being changed to airports by the website when they don't refer to the airports at all.

RDM seems to stand for redemption and is being changed to Redmond, Oregon.
Does CBA (=Corner Bay, Alaska) stand for some sort of credit card check?

I have this on two bookings made over the phone (where obviously the credit card wasn't seen) but not on an internet booking.

Any update since 2007?

I've noticed that I've recently become a nun as it appears to interpreting Sr in my title field as Sister rather than Senhor.
