After getting my boarding pass, I noticed a couple of self-service check-in machines right next to the counter. Since I had already checked in, I thought I’d just play around with one of them to see if it works, and it did…. I was shocked! This is a great improvement for business travelers. No more waiting in line behind the family of five with 15 suitcases!
I got a second boarding pass in less than 1 minute!!
The system is very user friendly. I just scanned my passport, input the first 3 letters of my destination and got a screen with my name, frequent flyer, flight and seat numbers. It gave me the option of choosing / changing my seat as well. Then it printed my boarding pass. Simple.
There are 16 airlines linked to the system so far.
The electronic boarding pass is printed on a thin paper. Nothing fancy, just the required information.
Good job Beirut Airport!
um, surely the fact that you were able to print out a second boarding pass, despite already being checked in, is a sign that these machines DON’T work…?
True true… but hey i got a boarding pass and i got it stamped. The system needs some improvements but should work fine in the end
I saw the machines last night and was impressed that they finally got them. Wasn’t flying MEA though.
