Thanks for all your advice.
I had already looked at the link mentioned by Ceejay but unfortunately some of the countries that I am departing from are not listed so I will have to print them - such a hassle!! I wish the trial goes well and they roll it out further by the time i reach Europe!
I read an article somewhere that come end of May that they will not have the facilities to print out boarding passes anymore. To confirm, I even sent them an email to clarify, which is why I'm in this situation. Oh well...I cant complain as I'm getting cheaper flights.......
I also like the idea of sending the boarding pass to hotel reception......at least I've got a few options open to me. thanks to all your contributions!
