    Yesterday I was able to check my wife in for her shuttle flight today on US using my work computer (Windows). This morning I went to check her in for the return tonight, and it would not display or print a boarding pass. It gave me a specific error number, but I didn't feel like holding for a long time.

    About a half hour later I went to my wifes PC, an HP and was able to print the pass without issue.
    Has anyone else had difficulty using usairways.com for checkin while using a MAC?

    Just asking....

    Art, I've been ok here. Done it a few times on MAC OSX using FireFox.

    Generally, I tell it to "Print without the advertisements", the link is at the bottom of the page to do this.

    I've also printed to PDF file as well without any issues.

    I have come across this on occasion with Safari. If it causes it to crash or give an error, if I try a second time it usually works.

    I thought so too, tried it numerous times and got the same error. It all worked out though when I went to the windows machine.

    Safari is awful, using FireFox on my mac I've never had any issues.

    I have had it hang up while printing boarding passes using my Mac. I would get the US flag thingy running around all day. Tried again and had it work. Maybe 3x now.

    I never have a problem, but I always use Firefox or Chrome.

    I can't even print a properly laid out US boarding pass on a PC with Internet Explorer. It comes up garbled. Probably has to do with settings of some sort on my machine, but not a problem I have with any other carrier. I always have to print US boarding passes with Firefox instead.

    I have never had issues using Firefox, but I have had problems with printing boarding passes on a Windows PC using Internet Explorer. In my experience, if you make it as far as the endless circling flags, the system has checked you in, even if you cannot get to the actual boarding pass screen.

    Still having issues with check-in on chrome - looks like CSS is not rendering and I can't select a seat at all.

    I use Firefox exclusively on my Mac, and don't have issues with the site. I'm just not a fan of Safari in general.

    I have to use Safari to utilize the US site as when I use Firefox, I get a white page with a URL error.
