Open Skies: Online check in

Twenty four hours before departure, I got an email from Open Skies telling me that online check-in was open. I took a quick gander over to the website, plugged in my confirmation number and last name then clicked “Manage my booking”. In turn, the site asked for my passport information then took me to the seat selection website.

This is where things got a little tricky. Things may have been complicated a little because I was on a press ticket with several exceptions in the reservation, so the online system had trouble automatically checking me in. At first I thought that this was a problem with the website (I had the same trouble on the return trip), but I met several people who had successfully checked in online so can only blame my specific reservation.

Given that I had plenty of time to connect the next day, I shrugged off the problem and decided to check in then at the airport.
