Just hopped on a flight home from Chicago this morning and was reminded how slick it is to have an electronic boarding passes for my flight.
A couple of benefits to note:
- Save Environment: you save paper
- Save Money: you save cash on ink cartridges
- Save Time: you don't have to hook up to a printer or find one if you aren't home
Plus, you don't have to worry about trying to find it in that black hole you call a purse! American Airlines and Northwest/Delta both have electronic boarding passes, I am sure others do as well. If they have the option, you'll be able to request that you get your boarding pass via your mobile device when you are checking in online. It will appear on your smartphone and then you just scan your phone at the "check-in" points when you go through security and then again when you are at your gate.
After that - you are on your way to your next big adventure!
