Does HA have offices in Siberia?

Just looking at my current HA electronic ticket information. The issuing agent is noted as HA. The issuing agent location is indicated as "Saskylakh, E. Ural, Russia."

The previous eticket I could locate had the issuing agent location as Upolu Point, HI."

So, is HA now outsourcing its computer operations to the Ruskies? In Siberia?

Here's a possibility. Upolu Point is the northern most part of the Big Island near Hawi and has a small general aviation airport: UPP. Likewise, the location in Russia also has a small airport for domestic flights: SYS. Could it be these three letter codes were put into the reservation for some reason and the computer-in-the-sky interpreted them as airport codes and printed them out as their location? Other than that, nothing would surprise me when it comes to HA reservations.

I had two LATAM tickets issued with Iberia Plus and Alaska Mileageplan and both had this same issuing agent:

Quote:
TICKET ISSUED WITH IBERIA PLUS
AGENTE EMISSOR LATAM AIRLINES GROUP/A99
LOCAL DO AGENTE EMISSOR SASKYLAKH, E URAL RUSSIA
Quote:
TICKET ISSUED WITH ALASKA MILEAGEPLAN
AGENTE EMISSOR LATAM AIRLINES GROUP/HWC
LOCAL DO AGENTE EMISSOR SASKYLAKH, E URAL RUSSIA

As inlanikai explanation, the SYS iata is a good reason for this "error"
