I read in a newspaper that BA has introduced WAP check in and seat allocation. This means that you, or some of us, can check in from the mobile phone on the way to the office, or to the "john" for that matter. BA says that this will minimise time at the airport.
W H Y ?
For me, air travel is an enjoyable experience. And the fun starts at the airport ! I just love the airport environment - the checking in, passport control, the pre-flight coffee, phoning home to say goodbye and expecially the departure lounge where I can watch the ground movements. Perhaps some people are just too busy to have enjoy the simpler things in life. Am I just an old fashioned romantic fool? I'm glad I am. How many more like me ?
