American Airlines Takes Off with iOS 6 Passbook
In only a matter of days Apple will unleash iOS 6 and a slate of new features. Chief among the hotly anticipated new features is Passbook, which is billed by Apple as the "simplest way to get all of your passes in one place."
Ahead of Passbook's arrival, American Airlines announced today that it will update its digital ticketing system to support Passbook. As a result, millions of travelers will be able to conveniently check in to flights with nothing more than their handy iDevice.
A spokesperson for the airline confirmed that it will be “rolling out an app update in the coming weeks in support of Passbook. In the meantime, customers can still access their mobile boarding passes in the current version of American’s mobile app.”
Although public confirmation is yet to happen, Delta is thought to be working on Passbook to implement functionality for it's mobile boarding passes. Delta released its first mobile app for the iPhone two years ago.
Skift reported Monday that a spokesperson for United Airlines will also not publicly confirm or deny the airline's plan to similarly support Passbook.

This would be cool if I traveled, why make it waste just that tiny bit of space on my phone when I will never use it? Just make it an app like iBooks that they recommend when you open the App Store for the first time.

I really think it's kind of risky to count on your iDevice when travelling...too many thinks that could go wrong
