Delta Will Automatically Check-In Passengers for their Flight
Delta is making checking in for your flight much easier. The airline will now automatically check you in for your fight and issue your boarding pass to your phone, as long as you have the Fly Delta app. You should receive the mobile boarding pass 24 hours before your flight. It looks like this is currently available only on iOS.
This makes Delta the first US airline to implement automatic check-in and comes a few weeks after the airline introduced free in-flight texting. I love this change and it’s a no brainer win for customers. Yes it doesn’t take very long to check-in manually, but having it done automatically means I don’t have to remember to do it every time I fly and can focus on other things instead.
