I would like too, but here in New Zealand looks like nothing uses it?

I wish I could add my reward cards like the keyring app does that way I could keep everything in one app

I use it for my AMEX card, it automatically pops up when I swipe the card or my wife does. I used it when I flew home at Christmas and it made the checking in so fast and on one leg of the flight people already checked in got a shorter line. I saw so many people playing with iPhones and holding paper boarding passes. One less paper to lose during the flight is great IMO

Hey is it awkward when you give your phone to the guy who checks your ID and pass before you enter the security check in the airport? Or do you use a paper pass for him/her and the mobile pass for the Gate scan only?

Im thinking of using only the mobile boardin pass, but it might be awkward when everyone next to me in line uses paper while I hand him/her my phone.

I usually don't give a damn of what others around me think. I have seen many people board the plane with their phones.

The tsa checkpoint should have a scanner where you scan your phone screen and the officer can verify your identity.

All the time for movie tickets via Fandango. Will try it for boarding passes for an upcoming vacation.

Thanks, that puts my mind at ease.

Going to try using only mobile passes from now on - and honestly its a LOT more convenient and less likely to get misplaced.

I fly very often. Very easy to do online checkin. Have only carry on bags and then proceed straight to gate with boarding pass on phone.

I can arrive at the airport literally 15 minutes before a flight and walk straight through.

I haven't used it yet. Only because where I live; there's no movie theatre that allows the use of passbook yet.
