A TikTok user posted a “life hack” about how to never lose your boarding pass. Apparently the method is to show up at the airport with your boarding pass printed on a five foot piece of paper.
Surprisingly he seems to have no issues at any point of the journey, including check-in, security, and even boarding the plane. And despite being on a basic economy ticket, apparently he’s still allowed to board with his boarding pass — I would have assumed that would qualify as a full size carry-on. 😉
Here’s the video, which is hilarious:
This gave me a good laugh since it’s current, and it’s always nice to see some humor with flying in the age of coronavirus.
However, in fairness, he’s far from the first person to have tried this concept:
In fairness, most of the other big boarding pass videos seem to be from Ryanair flights. Ryanair charges a €/£55 “airport check-in fee,” or if you lose your boarding pass, there’s a €/£20 “boarding card reissue fee.”
