What’s the worst they could do if I fly into Taiwan and, for whatever reason, they don’t accept my e-ticket itinerary as evidence of an onward or return ticket? Would they send me back to the States?
I’ve been trying hard to find out how they handle e-tickets. So far, I’ve called the Taiwan consular’s office in Washington D.C. (twice), spoke to three different people, called the airline at least three times, maybe four, spoke to various customer service reps, including the floor manager, and sent an e-mail to the customer service manager. In nearly every case, they either say, “Good question… I don’t know” or, “Well… e-tickets are everywhere, so a printed itinerary should be okay.”
“Should be okay…” wasn’t really the kind of answer I was looking for. So I decided to cough up the 20 bucks for a paper ticket. Oops! I bought it from expedia.com, and now United says they won’t/can’t print a paper ticket for me since I went through expedia. Grrr… I guess I’ll just take my chances.
So again, what’s the worst they could do if I fly into Taiwan and they don’t accept my e-ticket itinerary as evidence of an onward or return ticket?
