Not correct. If this is e-ticket you never get it. You get a boarding pass
only when you want to board the plane. That is when you show your ID. Also,
they do not really check the validity of ID. Bouncers check the IDs are the
bars better than airlines. They do not even pay attention to the dates the
ID expires.

I know it's Europe, which is extremely different to the USA, although with
our Schengen agreement, it's starting to become like the States, but I
flew to Sweden via Denmark from Amsterdam at the weekend and on the
outbound flight and in the inbound flight, I never had ID checked once.

The first time was where I just put my amex into a machine, got my
boarding pass and walked onto the plane, the 2nd I jsut gave my booking
number, got my boarding pass and again onto the plane...

I hope they are a little more stringent now, indeed Amsterdam Schiphol is
refusing to carry unaccompanied bags.
