If I book a flight with a passport and the airline employee at the check-in desk refuses it, can I board with the second passport?


I have a French passport and a US passport. If I book a flight with one passport and the airline employee at the check-in desk refuses it due to its physical condition, can I board with the second passport? Assume I don’t have to present any visa to the destination country’s immigration officers that can’t be done on arrival to be allowed to enter the country.
