    I liked the solution alot.. but they need to get the smartpasses out now to replace the boarding pass, paper-free travelling!

    Paper-free travelling are already in place. Just use you Eurobonuscard og 2D-barcode on your mobilephone ;)

    hmm.. that's true, I didn't think of that! I guess smartasses don't need smartpasses ;)

    It wasn't that often I used it... only a few times when i checked in bags from AAL did I have to place my finger at the luggage drop and the gate... nice instead of ID both places. But i seemed like they had some tehcnical problems, becausse most passengers hat to try several times before the scanner accepted the finger print.

    This sucks! Biometric ID solution was the one way to skip a huge queue early in the morning at SVG to drop the baggage. It worked really well for me. Will definitely be looking forward for its return.

    This isn't bad news. It's just that the service is no longer needed as airlines no longer have to check ID. In other words: even shorter lines.

    I surely hope so Erik :) The shorter the better :) I love how simple things are kept in our airports, don't want them to turn into monstrous big hubs one day.

    Like Erik said, we're dropping biometrics simply because there is no longer a need for it, as we are no longer required to do ID-checks. One less thing to worry about
