I think he should communicate with Dan, he will probably get every single detail from him, he will write the entire story in a DDMS posts of course with a request for comment from the airline, then we'll get to see exactly what happened

Shouldn't be too hard to tell if it's a separate PNR.

Exactly. It will also make a difference regarding complaining to the DOT etc'. If it is a separate PNR than the DOT has nothing to do here.

I am really not sure I got the ticket through the travel agent.
 
For the Miami to Madrid flight it says:
Confirmation# American Airlines ECWD** or Iberia K27**
Flight # American Airlines  AA8638
Operated by: Iberia flight # 6124

For the Madrid to Tel Aviv flight the flight they were bumped from says
Confirmation# Iberia K27** or Iberia 26VT**
Flight# Iberia Flight # 3316

Just noticed this regarding second leg. Not common to have two confirmation numbers from the same airline. This seems to indicate there might have been two separate tickets. I'm sure if you send @Dan all your documentation he will get the story straight. I suspect that some blame might need to be shifted to the travel agent.

One of the 2 numbers is common to both flights but is only 5 characters

I smell a DDMS post coming, educating people about the risks of gaming the system by getting two separate tickets. How to make sure connection goes smoothly, check-in procedures, etc. etc. and when to avoid (when sending kids alone connecting in a country where they don't speak the language).

I'm on IB right now JFK-MAD. My tickets were JFK-MAD-BUD and MAD-TLV. Im skipping BUD portion and connecting to TLV instead. DP: IB checked my bags to MAD only. They didnt issue me a Boarding Pass for BUD either. They also required me to show return booking even though i was continuing on to TLV. Will report back on how transfer goes in MAD. Have to collect bags and recheck to TLV.

Not sure what the debate here is. From the OPs post with the PNRs it shows both segments with the same IB 5 character PNR. So both flights were on the same PNR.

(it's still possible though that they were 2 different tkts)

I always get 5 alphanumeric PNRs in 1A for IB even not code share. Not sure what it is for since IB actually uses 1A.

Transfer is a bit of a PITA need to go from T4S to T4 to collect and recheck luggage then back to T4S to check in. I can see how teenagers can get messed up here very easily.
