Flight confirmation emails are sent directly by the airline.* If you have recently purchased a ticket and have not received your email confirmation yet, it is because the airline is still processing it. Some airlines, such as American Airlines, take up to 4 hours to send the email confirmation. Call their reservation department directly if you still have not received your confirmation after 4 hours.
You can also look up your flight on the airline's website using your confirmation code.

When you are missing your confirmation email, do the following:
1 - Make sure your purchase actually went through. Consult your credit card statement to see if there is a charge.
2 - Call the airline or merchant listed next to your charge and ask about the status of your ticket. For 3rd party booking sites, you will want to call right away to make sure no extra verification is needed to process your transaction.
