Which Is Your Favourite Boarding Pass?

Fri Feb 20, 2004 12:37 pm

I collecting boarding passes of my flights I took , I am sure there are other folks like me who collect. For those who collects, which is your favourite?


I love the Emirates and Singapore Airlines's boarding passes, because both of them are my favourite airlines.

My favorite boarding pass is the one I can print out at home. I love internet check-in.  Smile

Also, I think Hawaiian's boarding passes are the easiest to read (of the few I've seen lately other than AS). They're clear and well laid out so the information is easy to find.

I find US Airways' boarding cards to be very professional & attractive. Of course, many other airlines use the same ones, since they're more-or-less flight coupons, but I like their colors  Smile.

I may be biased, but I like UA's boarding passes (I wouldn't say so if I didn't!). Either gold or light blue (gold=better seat!), with the sweeping "U" in the upper right and a faint world map across the card. Very classy!

Aloha's /AQ/ boarding passes are nice, with the Bird of Paradise logo.

Yes, it's pretty nice. It hasn't changed in quite a while. It still has that neat looking coloured watermark of the Bird of Paradise. I also like Hawaiians. I have ATA's and it's quite... yuck!

My favourite (there is, of course, a bit of a bias here) is QF's boarding pass. It's very nice, not too complex, very clear, uncluttered, and easy to read. Other nice ones include HA and UA. Southwest's on the other hand, is terrible! Just a plain, very cluttered, B & W slip of paper........also, Scenic Airlines' passes are pretty much rock bottom........they're just small pieces of normal orange paper with your name and seat on it, that's about it.

Boy, I'm getting too caught up in this thread.......they're just boarding passes!  Laugh out loud

Cheers,

I like United's the best because of the logo in the background and the different colour boarding passes.

I like JAL boarding passes... very nice... the best thing is that their boarding pass reading machines return the whole boarding passes to you... not just the tiny end of it.

JAL also has a classy designs that change every few years.

Gosh, I despise those AA passes that come out of the self check-in machines. They're basically on fax paper. I think United has nice boarding passes. I can't complain about Cathay's, Virgin's, Dragonair's, and British Airways' either! (But, the Air Canada one sorta pisses me off.)

This may come as a surprise (yeah right!), but I think JetBlue has the best boarding pass. It's just simple. There's a piece of partially ripped paper with your seat number, confirmation number, flight number, date of travel, boarding time, and trublue number. It's stapled to a slightly larger (after the gate agent rips it) piece of paper that has a part of JetBlue's contract of carriage, and on the other side it says, "Please be on bard at least 10 minutes prior to departure - we don't want to leave you behind!" This boarding pass is small, easily folds for my pocket, and gets the job done. With US Airways, you need a whole envelope to carry your boarding passes!

Also, if you're traveling with more than one person, only one person has to hold the boarding pass. That's because more than one boarding pass can be stapled on one contract of carriage notice.

I like Lufthansa's. Eventhough, they are basic I like the way they look. United's looked pretty good when I flew them 4 years ago.

Why what a coincidence ToBEYwithMEA I agree with you completely!

As a side note, I also happen to like my Concorde boarding pass which is behind a frame hanging in my office next to my certificate of flight and picture of G-BOAF.
