and not everyone is happy!
Kind of miss the old fashioned paper ticket arriving in the post just before travel. Should have kept few of my old paper tickets - just for souvenir sake.
I'm currently travelling on a paper ticket (handwritten) itinerary that consists of ten booklets! Fun times...especially when the agents don't know what to do with them...
Handwritten paper tickets...hmmmmm reminds me of the good old days........sigghhhhhhh
Relative flew with Thomas Cook recently (thats another story), anyway, a week before she left, a letter arrived. In it was a letter and printed itinerary (A4 size), the letter said words to the effect of "we ahve dispensed with old fashioned tickets, its all completely electronic, so no old fashioned ticket needed - and you MUST produced the attached itinerary when checking in or you cant fly!
With apologies to The Who, "meet the new ticket, same as the old ticket".
does anyone miss the rotary phone as well?
what do you "miss it" !!!!!!!!
yes we do have and still use a phone with a rotary dial. does have certain restrictions though
What if one doesn't have a mobile phone in 2010?
have to go back to writing letters ?
That would probably exclude about half the population by then !
there are always the "new is better" crowd. they are the ones who probably hardly ever take part in conversation any more due to ipods stuck in their ears and when they do it's some loud banal comment on their cell phone. bet they cant wait for unlimited use of cells on planes.
while i can see the advantage of e tickets it was always nice to have real ones in your possession.
impossible for them to disappesr into cyberspace.
and yes, i still write letters. yes, write! u do remember pens (or quills) dont u?
what hope is there for the future generations, if they cant text or type over the internet, theyd never manage.
write a letter??? is it rite a leta???
