Same. No login required.

Greetings from South Beach, Everyone. So far, no matter where we are, getting our return airline tickets have never been an issue. All that is needed is the locator code, flight info and a computer/printer. I don't recall any fees, either. At least on our chosen airlines, we need to do this within 24 hours of departure.

For the record, we are on Riviera right now (May 17th) and there is a clear sign announcing the 25 cents per page charge for printing. I assume that holds to boarding passes as well,


But I agree that while I've always liked to print them out at home (or wherever), they toss ours and give us new ones, so why bother? When we were preparing to leave from Newark Airport to Brussels, then on to Nice, on United -- I wasn't able to check in with UAL, let alone print a boarding pass. And I didn't need them at all,

Of course if I am checking in myself I do have the option of logging in and accessing a "my flights" or similar section of the website in order to check in, but I have never found logging in to be a necessary step to check in and get a boarding pass for a flight.
Yes, you are correct. Of all the airline boarding passes I've had printed by any hotel or airline staff, I never had to give my login credentials to the staff. When I check in my self on a public hotel or airline computer, I also avoid logging, as there are computer viruses that record all the keystrokes, so better safe than sorry.

I have what may be a very basic question. My husband, grandson and I will be flying to Seattle in June. Can all boarding passes be on my phone or would each of us have to bring along their phones?

I do not know of any airlines which permit multiple boarding passes on the same phone. If it is a reservation with 3 people on it, it is probable that boarding passes are not even available by phone; thus each person would have to have a printed one.

Welcome others to correct me if I am wrong.

As long as everyone is on the same booking number, you can get all the boarding passes on a single phone. If on separate bookings, separate phones.

I did some further checking and it seems like multiple boarding passes on same phone are possible on most airlines with the exception of Southwest.

If all are on a single reservation, one phone is all that is needed for multiple boarding passes. However, while most major airports have scanners, some out-of-the-way places abroad may still use only paper.

To all the nay sayers about printing boarding cards.
1) The APP may not work on a multi airline itinerary
2) You do not need to have your passport scanned. The data is contained now in the reservation.
3) If you do carry on no need to check in bags. In fact the advantage is you can go through early before the airline counter opens for your flight and relax in the lounge. This is perfect those 1am flights when you finish a tour at 5pm and do not want to in the terminal. Have done this many places -- Brazil, Israel, Dubai, Bahrain and other garden spots..


Back to the OP pay the 25 cents - worth it.

Hi Paul,
Just want to expand on this point with our experiance a couple of weeks ago flying United SFO-CDG.

United had my wife's and my passport data on file but, when checking in online had a error message they could not check in my wife (no problem with me).

Come to find out my wife had to renew her passport about a year ago and what they had on file was expired. The United app had a feature that you could upload a photo image of it using the cell phone which I guess electronicly could take all the new info from passport. Once I did that I was able to check her in.

But, we still had to show our passports when checking our bags. Reason given is they needed to phyicaly check the passports were signed by us. Said specifically Germany has hit them hard with fines with passports not signed (and of course my wife's new passport was not signed...lol).

Again, just our experience a couple of weeks ago.

Cheers,
John

In my experience, they prefer one per phone. Also - desk agents have warned me, while printing paper passes, of the dangers of your battery running down mid trip.

You still need to show a picture ID.
I wonder how many agents - especially those abroad -would accept your DL for an ID.
Passport works a lot better for international flights, IME.
