You should use the passport required for the destination at checkin as that's what will be entered into the system. For example, flying to Germany, you should check in using your German passport. The US has no exit control, so there shouldn't be a problem. Vice versa when you check in for your fligh...Jump to post

What does this have to do with Americans? People have altercations on airplanes everywhere.
Have these incidents been happening for a while, or is it due to the fact everyone has a smartphone and can record this airline BS now?
The US carriers' biggest liability sadly is their own employees. They can make or break the customer experience.
