Very recently, I've actually been asked for my IC while checking in for a flight back to Singapore. On principle I demanded (aren't Americans PITAs?) to know why. Airline check-in counter told me their official policy was they needed to see proof of permanent residency or an onward ticket. Fair enough, so I gave her my EP. This was a return flight from Haneda on CX, so not sure if she was a HAN or CX employee.
To follow up (and no I've not organized a replacement NRIC - pure stubborness) - BA asked me for my 'identity card' when I checked in at IAH for a flight to Singapore via London. I showed her a picture of my NRIC on my Samsung SIII and she accepted it!
