Qantas lets microchipped frequent fliers skip the queues

נשלח לפני
 
QANTAS is aiming to halve its domestic check-in times by using microchips in its frequent flyer cards, giving holders their own permanent boarding pass and allowing them to skip the queues. In the new system, passengers will simply scan their card at stand-alone kiosks in the terminal then go through security to their gate. A simplified baggage drop will be provided, with frequent flyers given a permanent microchipped bag tag electronically linked to their pass, The Daily Telegraph reports. (www.news.com.au) עוד...

How do you remember your seat number?

I was just thinking the same thing.. right now the FAs check your boarding pass as you get on the plane - they won't be able to do that either.

I don't like when they do that. It should be the job of the gate agent (even those though computers don't really check it) and it's just one more thing to have to carry in your hands and delay boarding. I was on a flight from Narita to Houston last week and a guy insisted I was sitting in his seat until everyone figured out he had a boarding pass for Guam. What were the gate agent, the gate agent computer, and the flight attendant checking when they looked at his BP? That it wasn't a library card?

The chip is only going to be for Qantas Silver (oneworld Ruby) and higher - so you'd hope they would know what they're doing.

I don't see how it's any quicker than the current quick-check system. You still need to swipe your card in the kiosk. I mean, how long does it really take to print and attach the bag tag?

It's amazing to me that someone can make it all the way on to a plane with the wrong boarding pass without their confusion being detected.
