My husband, a friend and I just flew out of San Antonio this Wednesday evening to Las Vegas. We did do the online check-in, and were nos. A3, 4 and 6. It was a treat to be able to sit and relax before the flight, and the crew at the gate were very informative on how the system worked. No more cattle call! When we flew out of Las Vegas on Saturday afternoon, I had checked in previously via my cell phone, and received A boarding (later found out they were 7, 8 and 11 - not fast enough fingers then!). We arrived at the airport 2-1/2 hours early, but had a drink before leaving. By the time we got to the gate 30 minutes before the flight, people were already standing in the A & B lines. We were the last to board from the A group, and if the system in San Antonio was in place in Las Vegas, we would have been right in front. Loved (or should I say "luved") the San Antonio process, and think it would be great for all airports, as there would not be much involved to set it in place. Aren't the numbers already on the boarding passes anyway? All San Antonio did was have either posts with the numbers on them or queue lines with numbers. It didn't look like there would be much to do in the way of preparing gates for this system. Thanks for the great flights!
