E-Ticket Service Electronic ticketing, or E-Ticket service, was pioneered by United Airlines, which was the first carrier to expand E-Ticket service across the United States, offering it on more than 4,000 daily flights. With United's hassle-free E-Ticket service, travelers don't have to worry about forgetting, losing or making changes on their tickets. After booking travel with United or their travel agent, customers just show a photo I.D. and the credit card used to purchase the ticket at the airport to obtain a boarding pass. E-Ticket customers can still check in at curbside, request an advanced seat assignment, and obtain a paper receipt or itinerary in the mail or via fax. United's international E-Ticket service is scheduled to be launched across North America and Europe in 1997. Customers using E-Ticket service also gain access to the fast lane for departure with United's newest airport-based technology, self-service boarding pass machines. . The following from TONY ACRI and has been forwarded by VESTA. Airline Simulator Flights Have you ever wondered how it would feel like to fly one of those big iron jetliners? Well here is your chance. Available to the GENERAL PUBLIC, pilots and anyone interested in the aviation industry, you can fly a B-727 simulator based at Air Canada Training Center (Pearson International Aiprot (YYZ)). For $175 + GST, you can spend three hours in the airline simulator where YOU fly the aircraft. You are Flight Engineer for one hour, First Officer for another hour and the last hour you are PIC (Captain). There are two instructors in the back giving you the actual lessons on how to fly the aircraft. It is a great feeling when you actually make your first successful landing and nobody injured. You will find a greater appreciation for the people who actually fly those big iron birds. You have a choice of 6 airports and various weather options to choose from. Best of all, you need no previous flying experience. We want to make this a memorable experience that may help you get involved in the aviation industry.
