When you pick up a boarding pass, it has many of your personal details splashed all over it. But the innocuous-looking barcode contains an even richer seam of information about your travel plans and habits — and it may pay to keep it hidden away from prying eyes.
It hasn't been a great decade for air travel. And while crappily designed boarding passes aren't at the very top of my list of axes to grind with the airline industry, they're more important than you might think. Just take a look at this great version by UK designer Peter Smart for proof.
Airlines no longer have excuses. They need to get off their asses. They need Flight Card. What's Flight Card? It's an iPhone app that simply and beautifully tracks flights. It also should be the future of boarding passes.
