Can I obtain my past airline passenger flight details

Is it possible to obtain past flights that I have taken from an airline? I need this urgently for a High Court case where I am a litigant in person (represent myself, no lawyer/barrister). If I could prove the whereabouts on a particular date I would probably win the case which is worth a great deal of money.

Has anybody got any advice pleased?

flightstats.com might give details of flights but wont prove you were on a particular flight at a given time on a specific date - the only place where you'll get that information is from the airlines.

You are representing yourself at the Royal Courts of Justice? And you wish to prove your whereabouts using flightstats.com?

Ambitious

If it is worth "a great deal of money", my advice would be to instruct a legal professional.

Hi,

Naturally the airlines themselves will have this data too.

Airlines don't keep all this data on their immediate mainframe for access worldwide.

Old, used ticket, PNR and flight information would be a huge amount of data to keep on the live mainframe, so it's usually archived .... but can be extracted if necessary.

You usually have to make a request in writing and there may be a research/processing fee to do so. I'd start with a call to the carriers home office (not reservations) and see where that gets you.

It might be an accounting department issue or even legal affairs ..

Travel Safe,

I take it you've heard the old saying about that ?

If you need it urgently I suspect you are out of luck, even if you don't need it in a hurry it's going to be a process which involves bureaucracy, payment , time and luck because I suspect that each airline stores this stuff differently and also may dispose of it after a period. Even if they don't totally dispose of it it may be consolidated to a point where its of no use to you or it can't be easily searched.

If its worth a great deal of money pay a specialist to obtain it.

You have a case in high court, effectively the Senior Court in England which deals with the high importance cases only and you are representing yourself and you have no proof you were ever a pax, and knew this before commencing...

Is that right?

Indeed. So urgent that they cannot be bothered to check back on the forum 4 hours after posting.

Some people really do have far too much time on their hands

Don't be so hard on them, perhaps they are waiting for a break in the court proceedings.

Could be a high profile divorce/family matter in the Family Division, and folk can/do represent themselves.

If it is the case the OP should really have just asked the actual question rather than giving the complete detail as to why they need the info.

Just something like this would have sufficed, .....'Is it possible to obtain past flights that I have taken from an airline? I need this urgently to prove where I was on a certain date'.
