Wow. Just wow. Yes, there are labor disputes galore. And yes, the unions are the ones that usually give the concessions and the airlines are the ones that come out on top. But it’s not always who wins, but who gets the last laugh that counts, to some degree.
British Airways is about to come out with mobile boarding passes. That’s great! They’re a great option for the traveling public. To promote this in their recent magazine, they showed a photo of a mobile boarding pass. Who was the boarding pass assigned to? Osama bin Laden. Not only that, but he was flying first class to Washington DC.
So while British Airways may win the war, they’ve been made a laughingstock. And to the person who actually did it – good on you!
