It's wonderful to see more and more airlines starting to do their part in saving the environment. I never really thought about it until I read this post, but the amount of paper that's used to print boarding passes must be astronomical! Kudos to WS on a wonderful idea!

Finnair does this for their domestic flights and it's actually a pain in the ass as it slows down boarding. Instead of the gate agent picking up your boarding pass and just scanning it, they have to take your phone / FF card / whatever and type in your details. It's not hard to work out which one is faster.

I remember before 9-11 that Delta had a check in system using your cell phone. It was great for people who were late from a meeting and couldn't make it to the kiosk before the 30 minute cutoff. I also remember that DL technology was working on a barcode system where you could scan your phone at the gate and it would read the barcode on your browser as your boarding pass.
