Airticket, planeticket, passenger ticket, airline ticket


Dear teachers, which one do you use when you go to a travel agent
to purchase such a ticket?

All can be found in Yahoo search, but the first two cannot be found in
dictionaries, and the last two seem to be used by airlines not by travellers.

I want to know which one is commonly used by travellers. Thanks! :)

The first two are separate words: air ticket, plane ticket

Of those four, plane ticket and airline ticket would be the most common, IMO, at least in AE. We do say airfare or plane fare for the price.
