self check in kiosks

Jump to last reply

I've yet to do a self check in at a kiosk. I always get an agent to do it for me. That's silly, and I need to learn how to do it for myself. Those of you who do it so often you don't even have to think about it, perhaps you can sort of walk me through. When we first began flying internationally, we were mailed the tickets. You could have two fullsized suitcases without cost. We now do it all on computer (except check in), and travel with carryon only. So we've come a long way, but still need to master self check in. We can't check in using our computer because we are at the park, sleep, fly Ramada the night before flying, and our cell phone is just a phone, doesn't do the zillion other things that the smart phones do. The check in will include a passport scanning. Face up, face down? I do need the basics. Thanks in advance to any kind hearted instructor.
