God bless America – it looks like Delta has signed up to trial mobile ticketing which will be available from this week for passengers making domestic Delta and Delta Connection flights from New York’s La Guardia airport.
Travellers will be able to download their electronic boarding pass from delta.com, and then present it to airport security and later on at the boarding gate where it will be scanned. It looks like Delta’s got big plans for mobile check-in too: “Future enhancements include standby upgrades and same day, round trip check-in on delta.com, mobile and SMS check-in,” the company said.
It all sounds great, but what happens when your phone dies? Do airport staff have an emergency charger to hand?
