We all know that printing our boarding pass before we go to the airport can save us time, but how many of us actually do it? My home airport is typically not that busy, and since I have Platinum status with American, I can go to a special machine. When I fly Southwest, I always check in 24 hours ahead of time, but never print out the boarding pass. Since I know I will typically be able to do it quickly at the airport, plus I hate wasting paper and ink, it just isn’t worth it to me.
When returning home, though, it’s totally different. Most of the time I will try my best to print it out ahead of time, especially if I’m going to a bigger airport or one I’m completely unfamiliar with. There are still a few airports I use all the time, like Nashville or Oklahoma City, where I won’t worry about it. Finally, if I know I’m going to be cutting it really close time-wise I will print ahead of time.
