Airline boarding passes on my PDA – Cool
I’ve tried it. It didn’t work for me, but it’s a great idea. Instead of printing out my boarding pass at home or from one of those airport kiosks, I can display it on my T-Mobile MDA device and show the barcode to the gate agent. The agent can scan that code as easily as if it were on paper.
When I tried it, I got no further than the security line, where that poor soul in the red coat checking IDs and boarding cards didn’t understand what he was looking at. He made me go and print it out at a kiosk and try again.
Continental is piloting a similar program, but I hope they clue in the TSA folks at the security line.
