    I tried to check in from home for a flight tomorrow and I could go through everything until I clicked the "check in" button. I received a message that check in wasn't available at that time. I repeated it twice. However, I used Microsoft Internet Explorer (MSIE) and I had no problems with it. What's with Safari that we can't do that??

    Even in MSIE I couldn't use the on screen "print" command to print my boarding passes. I had to use File/Print to do it.

    Would Mozila's FireFox handle this better or is this an OSX thing??

    It's more than likely due to the site using ActiveX (won't run on the Mac) or snubbing on the part of the link - not working except for, specifically, MSIE6, with some support for Mac IE.

    Enable the Safari debug menu (open Terminal, type in
    defaults write IncludeDebugMenu 1
    and start Safari).

    In that menu, you'll see an option near the bottom to set the User Agent. Set it to MSIE6.0 and see if things improve.

    Adds are, though, that the site uses ActiveX. Bastards. ;)
