Cell phone check-in in Japan

g-trv-080215-cellcheck-10a.jpg.hmedium.jpg Air travelers of All Nippon Airways have been using their phones to manage the entire airline experience since September of 2006, beginning with booking flights. MSNBC reports.

“Mobile phone users can book a flight, see a seating chart of the aircraft, select their seat, have a bar-code and other key travel information e-mailed to their phone ā€” and go to your departure gate just by producing their encrypted cell phone at airport security.

A 4-inch-long receipt that looks like it came from a standard cash register and prints out at the security check-point serves as your boarding pass.”
