Funny PNRs?

I posted this yesterday:
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/virgi...incidence.html

I wonder if anyone else has ever noticed a funny PNR on their ticket? I searched, and only found 1 in the CO forum from several years ago.

Talking PNRs (PNRs with interesting names)

Anyone else ever think their PNRs are talking to them?

Within the last year:
  • Business trip I was debating on taking, put on hold, and the PNR was DEFGGO. I went.
  • Flight to see someone I think I was still in love with, whose nickname began w/ K: ILUVUK.

Am I the only one whose had this happen?

We recently had BSHIVA. A reference to the Destroyer is never a good thing when getting on a plane. And I'm quite certain that a former FT member once had DINGUS for a PNR

Cheers.

Wow...thanks for clarifying!! I actually thought AA had made a technological leap forward with voice activated PNR's.

None of my PNRs have ever had anything interesting to say. All just sound like a noise/sound a 1 yr old would make

I've had an itinerary booked for a little while and every time I look at the PNR, it makes me fond for Orlando - EPCPQT!

Had LOVEUP on a trip with my wife once. Then I split the PNR for upgrade reasons and her PNR became gibberish.

had one last year HNGSOY. i'll leave it to your imagination what i thought of first ... but let's just say i didn't have to check my phone first to look it up when checking in at the kiosk.

i seem to remember a few others for held reservations that made me laugh, but i never converted them to purchases ...

I had BXTIME in 2009 just after the Yankees won the World Series. My itinerary was: JFK > LAX > DFW > MIA > DCA > JFK (a 5-day mileage run that resulted in me becoming PLT).
