Bye Bye Mag Stripe Hello 2D

So the specialized printing and the expensive machines should now be history. Well not quite - BUT - IATA standard 2D is now fully implemented. But not necessarily fully deployed so they declared this week.

Some carriers are still struggling. Others are somewhat PO'ed that they plonked down a lot of money for those expensive (now) boat anchors. But 2Billion boarding passes a year is a lot!
