Flyin’ news: ads on your boarding passes

July 15, 2008 at 4:47 pm Leave a comment

The airline industry has been griping a lot lately about how they’re losing money.  If you’ve flown on  US Air flight in the past couple years, you know they sell advertising space on their tray tables.  Today Delta launches a new way to collect revenue – advertisements on boarding passes.  That’s right – when you check in online and print your boarding pass, you’ll be using your ink to print out a bunch of ads.  The good news:  it’s not fully implemented yet, there’s a box to check to avoid printing the ads (but you’ll still see them on your computer screen), and only some other airlines (Continental, United, Northwest, and US Air) are getting on this bandwagon.  Get the full story at the Wall Street Journal.
