When printing boarding passes online, I've always gotten one pass per plane, as in layovers and such...one per flight (unless it was the kind I didn't have to get off the plane)

Today I printed for tomorrow and got one page- one boarding pass and I have a connecting flight. (all flights are listed on the one pass)

They take these passes at the gate, don't they? It it a new thing they are doing to just have 1 pass for all your flights?

Thanks everyone.

They should be seperated by like a dotted line
I always print 2 or 3 of them in case I lose one

Thank you, that's what I thought.

So they only gave me one....when I get off the plane and go to my new gate- they are going to need a boarding pass and I don't have one.

I guess I'll just have to get in line.

Go back into your reservation and print out another pass

Make a copy for each leg of the flight just in case. If the lines at the ticket counter are too long, go through security. On the other side, the airline may have a customer service counter. Ask them to assit. If no customer service counter, ask the gate agent to assit with seperate boarding passes.

Oh, so you can just print the boarding pass for the first flight...and copy it and use it for all connecting flights?

Cool...didn't know that.

Thanks for the tip! Since I have a pass to get on the first plane, I'll already be in the airport w/o another boarding pass so I can go to the gate and stand in line. But I'll print another copy of the first flight's boarding pass....maybe they'll take it at plane #2.

They do not take boarding passes, not usually. They scan them. It all depends on the airlines. The trend seems to put them all on one page now.

Just an update in case anyone stumbles across this thread w/ the same question....

the airline scanned it and gave it back to me (many airlines take them- each airline is different)
I presented the exact same pass at the next gate and they scanned it again. No problem.

No worry, the gate agent will scan the boarding pass and then hand it back to you. If you check in at the kiosk at the airport, you will also receive one boarding pass for all your segments. Have a great trip!
