    Annual Ticket

    As he is travelling with his family together, he requested us to pay out his annual ticket as per the details below so that he can book the tickets himself and for his family together; otherwise it will be a inconvenience for them because it will be under different PNR if we book the ticket for him. Therefore, please do not book the ticket for him but arrange for the cash out and payment to him accordingly.

    As he is traveling with his family, he asked us to pay for his annual ticket ....

    Note that "book" is okay. In AmE, the equivalent is "reserve".

    Re: Annual Ticket

    It seems way too complicated to me. If I wanted to buy a ticket for a flight on American Airlines from Charlotte to New York (for example) I would just buy it. No explanation would be necessary. (I'm probably missing something.)

    Re: Annual Ticket

    I think the OP is a travel agent or is communicating with one. It is not uncommon for people (at least in the Old World) to reserve a flight before deciding to pay for it. I suppose this is all changing, given the convenience and ease of booking online.
