Does anyone have the fare rules (and specifically, the 'book by' date)? Seems to be Oct 2nd from what can I understand of AA's website but I'm new at this so would appreciate confirmation.

I flew NCL-LHR recently and was not asked to present any photo ID despite sounding, "looking", and being non-British.
