BA Mobile Boarding PassBack to Forum
Anonymous28 Jun 2011
I have the BA app on my i Phone and works great except unlike LHR when I travel through LGW I am informed an electronic boarding pass is NOT available yet LGW is on the list on thheir web site. Any ideas ?28 Jun 2011
I also have the BA app on my iPad and sadly when using the boarding card it does not fit under the scanners at the lounges or at the gates. Also, was in Manchester today and could ServisAir staff be any more miserable?28 Jun 2011
With reference to iPads, the issue is that the scanners installed by some airport authorities do not have a long enough arm to reach the centralised location of the barcode when it’s displayed using the iPhone App on an iPad screen.
The scanners were, of course, originally designed to read the bar code on a standard paper boarding pass, and the width of an iPhone (or similar device) is not greatly dissimilar.
To the OP’s question though, there shouldn’t in theory be any problem in using an m-boarding pass at Gatwick in general, though there are some routes (such as inbound from LUX) which do not allow it – thanks to restrictions at the Grand Duchy end of things.29 Jun 2011
