Now you don’t even have to leave Facebook in order to check in to your Delta flight. Delta launched its Ticket Counter app on Facebook late last year. The application allowed you to book flights, as well as check your flight status, and SkyMiles on the carrier- now it adds the ability to check in for your flight up to 24 hours in advance, and print boarding passes as well.
Sure, it’s not a tremendous hassle to load Delta’s site up in another tab on your browser, but it is a step. For people who are often glued to Facebook throughout the day, integrating the service in can make the check in process a little bit easier. The app also lets you share information about your flight with friends on Facebook, making it easy to share your itinerary with someone who plans on picking you up from the airport when you arrive, or who just wants to make sure you land safely.
Do any of you use Delta’s Facebook application? Can you see yourself checking into flight or buying tickets on Facebook?
