Online Check-in Advantages
Why you might want to check in with your airline ahead of time:
- Some airlines offer bonus frequent flyer miles
- Ability to change your seat. If you haven’t already picked your seat, you can do so when you check in online, or sometimes a better seat becomes available after you initially booked your flight
Checking in via Your Online Itinerary is Easy
If you don’t have all of your airline plans organized neatly with an online itinerary, the only way to check in for your flight is to do so manually, which often requires that you dig up each of the following pieces of information, often buried deep in your email inbox:
- Your airline electronic ticket
- Your airline website login details, usally just a username and password
- Your airline frequent flyer number
Alternatively, you can just access your itinerary online and click the big ‘online check in’ button inside your itinerary. Get started.
Check Flight Status Online
TripIt also lets you check your flight status online, notifying you if your flight is delayed, or if you will need to check in online later. From your flight itinerary, you can check either your flight status or check in online.
