Thumbing A Ride

101012-N-7061S-018

Alaska Airlines is developing a system which will allow passengers to use fingerprint scans to replace paper documents and identification. The first step in the project, which has already been tested in Seattle, is using print readers to replace boarding passes to speed the loading process. Eventually, Alaska Airlines hopes to use the digit scans for in-flight purchases, lounge entry, bag drop-off and ticketing.
