Mobile Boarding Passes

Posted in: Observations

American Airlines is the latest and the fifth airline to test mobile boarding passes, which it hopes will not only cut down on paper waste, but also make things a little more speedy and convenient for travelers.

Read the release from American Airlines or get a more snarky version at MobileCrunch or Engadget.

A QR Code is a two-dimensional bar code contains information, such as URLs and contact info, created in Japan 1994. QR Code stores information in both vertical and horizontal directions so it holds a lot more info than traditional bar code. Scanning the code with scanner or camera phone equipped with the reader software can decode it, launching a browser to the specified destination.
