[*]Airlines are using faster access to boarding passes to win over passengers.
[*]Delta unveiled an automatic check-in feature earlier this month.
[*]United will allow travelers on app to access boarding passes for other airlines.

In an effort to dull some of the pain, and perhaps a sprint around an unfamiliar airport, United is now giving passengers access to their boarding passes on connecting legs provided by other airlines.

Travelers using United's app can download all of their boarding passes on itineraries that include both United and one of its 19 partner carriers, such as Lufthansa or Turkish Airlines, the carrier said Tuesday. It added that it's the first U.S. carrier to offer the feature.

It seems that there is always a catch. The first leg must be UA. It should be helpful for us on hard copy types for connections.

I wouldn't call that a 'catch'...passengers always have to check in with the carrier operating the first flight regardless of who the ticketing airline is. I booked a trip a few months ago using UA miles that included all LH flights and never expected to be able to check-in with UA either at a counter or on the app.

I've flown on an ERJ-145 over 600 times since 2001. My license plate is ERJ H8R. No.....really.....it is!!!

No, but if I booked my LH flight with UA miles, it sure would be nice to be able to use the UA app. Not so much for me, but for folks not familiar with the partners.

I don't have much to say, but you can usually find me saying it here.
