Airlines Plan To Scan Your Digital History To Price Your Ticket PDF Print E-mail

According to a recent article, USA Today reports that with advanced tech, your future flight reservation prices will depend on how the airline feels about you. When booking, your name will immediately reveal your previous record with the airline.

That could include how often you fly with them, seats you reserve and other factors. If all positive, your next flight could cost less and you’ll get better seating. Although no one wants to admit it, if you’ve also flown in the cheap seats and/or had personal complaints, your fare would go higher. Sort of reminds of the Soup Nazi in the Seinfeld comedy. Imagine lining up at the desk and being scornfully dismissed by the angry agent: You always book cheap seats. No flight for you!

And when you’re in London tomorrow, be sure to visit a pub and order some toad in the hole, spotted dick and bubble and squeak for tomorrow’s lunch back home.

The plan, called Easy Ride, is to have the vehicles fully functioning throughout Japan by the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
