For me the invention of Boarding Passes is probably one of the coolest ideas airlines have come up with. It at least gives one a more secure feeling of knowing one's seat has been confirmed. So when it happened during my last trip to Canada, via Charles De Gaulle Airport that I could not get one ahead of my flight, really missed it. Reason I could not get one apparently was because KLM was not set up to allow me to get a Boarding Pass with a partner of KLM, Air France.
I fly with KLM for now, as it seems to have good fares on the routes I am traveling. For my journey to South Africa, KLM is partnered with Kenya Airways, so two days ago when I checked whether I could get a boarding pass ahead of time, it said on the Web that a Boarding Pass was not available on that route. I kind'a hoped it was not really true, so thought I'd check again when there was less than 24 hours left before my flight, and was really happy when I lucked out. When I clicked on Boarding Pass this time round it provided a link to the partner's Boarding Pass page, and before I knew it, I was printing two boarding passes for the two flights from Dubai via Nairobi to Johannesburg. Probably the easiest yet, as Kenya Airways only asked for my passport information, instead of all of the other details one has to complete. So well done Kenya Airways, hope this is a good sign!
