"Print Your Own Boarding Pass"

Fri Mar 28, 2003 2:49 pm

Having the capability to check in for your flight and print your own boarding pass is very convenient and, I believe, a wonderful innovation. But are there some setbacks? For example, Delta allows you to now check in and print your boarding pass 24 hours in advance. What happens if you check in 20 hours in advance and then your travel plans suddenly change? Are you hosed? Also, since the boarding pass tells you whether you've been selected for additional security screening, aren't you taking a security risk here? I mean, if Terrorist A knows he'll be a selectee, he'll just have Terrorist B (who is not selected) carry the dangerous items in his suitcase. Is this an unfounded concern?

I know at NWA if you check in on the internet the gate agent can tell. We can pull up every passenger's name that checked in via the internet. If you don't show up for your flight we just cnld your seat and give it to someone else.

So is there a difference between the way checked in no-show and a non-checked in no-show would be treated as far as being able to take a later flight, etc?

They tell us no. But I just charge them the 100.00 and change the reservation when they show up. Hey it's extra money for the company and you know that might save someone's job

Hey Jeremy,

I do used with the check-in online from last year of November to ATL flight on delta.com for me. I do like it for me and this is mean for non-baggage need checked and just only for the carry-on, too. This is might saving time for check-in at my home. I do made 1,000 promotion with check-in online. Well, talk ya later!

Regards!
