The other problem with the iPhone boarding pass, and in my opinion its weakest link, is you need a data connection to access the boarding pass. I have yet to visit an airport which has free wifi for this purpose or else I need to spend a fortune (relatively speaking) to download it using 3G (unless in my home country). I have not yet found a way of storing the pass on the iPhone that does not then require a separate app.
It’s a nice novelty, but I prefer to check-in online, print my boarding pass, or else turn up at the airport and have them do it for me when I’m checking in my baggage.
One other downside = a flat battery!!!
