These days it seems like you could almost go through the airport without getting help from anyone. Soon I am sure they will get rid of the pilots… I am sure all you need is a remote control.
And stewards and just have these little robotic screens on wheels. With “Please select what you would like a: vege crips b: cookie c: lollies”. But if you accidentally select the wrong option then be warned you will either be stuck with it, or you’ll have to restart the whole process all over again.
Well to say I don’t sometimes enjoy the new self serve check in would be a lie. It is efficient and fast. But really what were the designers thinking! You check in it asks in a something about having dangerous goods. You select the wrong answer, because it was worded the wrong way around and you really aren’t paying attention. Then the system boots you out. You have to find some one to help you and then you have to end up going through the whole thing again.
But really my worse bug bear in the self service department is the dam parking pay machines. Theres a long line to them. 2 of them are not accepting eftpos or credit cards. There is no one around to help. Theres nothing, what happens if the other 2 don’t work are we going to be stuck in the car park all night? Do I have to walk all the way back to the airport find a ATM and get the cash. But then if that is to happen, the machine probably broken and want accept the cash.
