Continental Airlines Piloting Cell Phones As Boarding Passes
Continental is the first airline in the U.S. to test the use of cell phones or PDAs as boarding passes with a pilot program at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. Rather than being issued paper passes, passengers will receive a two-dimensional digital bar code on their phones. The code will be scanned and passengers will still need to show valid photo ID. If a passenger's phone loses power, they can be issued a back-up paper pass. If the pilot is successful, the use of cell phones as boarding passes could extend to other airports and airlines.
Southwest already does this!
and then I accidently hit "delete"
Of course people have to watch their phones more carefully now. And there are improvements to be made. But at least the U.S. is finally adopting the method of Cell phones being your one and only source of life now. Haha.
Can't wait to see more improvements
