I have been reading that American is testing out a new bag tagging service in Austin. Passengers are able to print off their own baggage tags.
I am having a hard time seeing how this will speed things up. Passengers still have to be ID checked and the an employee would have to put the bad on the belt.
Looks like Qantas is getting quite a bit of backlash on their self-service options as well:
The AOL story says that 35 airports around the world have done this. Has anyone experienced it?
