I need to purchase a plane ticket for a friend of mine.
He can't do it himself as he doesn't have a credit card.
Can i do this?
I need to know for certain as i can't afford to pay for a $400 ticket only to find that my friend cannot use it.
He is in another state and will be flying to where i am.
I'm using Priceline.
Thank you.

Sure, but the ticket will need his name...make sure it matches his IDs or it could cause major problems!
They don't give a fig WHO pays for it....it's the name on the ticket that is important.

DO be careful with Airline via priceline, and be SURE you are getting a screaming deal. (Non-refundable / changable,) often CRUMMY connections and multi carriers (no / segmented mileage accrual)

Are you sure you can't get as cheap a deal using SWA?
They are superb!!! free bags, FAST boarding, FREE changes / credits if you change, miss, or cancel flight. IFLYSWA.com AND... if a flakey BF doesn't use the ticket, you can use it yourself (equivalent credit)
