    Which airline, which airport, (in case there are differences.)

  • @Willeke I was asking for the general case, but if that indeed depends on the airline and airport: SFO with United Airlines. Sep 5, 2020 at 17:08

    My guess is that most probably yes, if they want to.

In almost all cases the answer is yes. The check in agent has full access to the ticket details including the fare class and the specific conditions & restrictions. Otherwise, they wouldn't be able to do any type of changes, upgrades, re-bookings, etc.
