22 July Fri SFO
British Airways ba.com hands off US flights to American Airlines. (not of the attitude that AA is a welcoming ambassador as BA is.)
No kiosk barcode provided Typed in the alpha code. Passport wouldn’t scan. Credit card (the one I bought the tickets with!) worked.
Got the blue screen of death: human assistance to verify travel documents required at this kiosk. No unavailable verify so the default solutions: get in line.
4 stations 3 agents 2 with problem travelers 1 with a family of seven. It’s fun to be the “next in line”
This is the reason you come 2 hours early for international flights.
Namaste. I wait sending off good vibes in front of me.
“Good morning! The sun just came up. Smile.
Done in 30 seconds.
