    I recently used OLCI and printed boarding passes out for return same day flights from Brisbane to Sydney.
    When I arrived at Brisbane airport I went to drop my bag off and was told that I would have to hand over the return boarding pass as I wasn't allowed to print a boarding pass for the return flight if I had baggage.
    That was fine I handed over the boarding pass. Thinking about it later I wondered what would be the reason for the rule.
    I don't see how it could be a security issue, if I wanted to bring a bag back with me I would still have to drop it at the baggage drop and show them my boarding pass and if I didn't have a bag on the return trip why would it matter that I had printed the boarding pass?
    Just curious if anyone had any ideas as to why this rule existed.

    Thats a good idea Dave, but I still wonder why it's a problem.

    Were you able to simply find an internet PC and recheck/reprint that BP?

    According to the Qantas Q & A:

    and

    Nothing there about baggage, but then there could be other rules we don't know about.

    BTW this answers a query I had about printing a return boarding pass for a flight between 12 and 24 hours away.

    I'm not sure the staffer is correct.

    This used to be a limitation of the QuickCheck same day boarding pass system, but like others cannot see any limitations when checking in over the Internet.

    This was the rules with QuickCheck:

    and of course the InternetCheckin version of that same line:

    No Baggage, but I was able to OLCI last Friday 24 hours before my flight to ADL and at the same time OLCI for my return some 31 hours beforehand.

    Mind you the seat allocated for the return (10A :confused: on 734) had no relation to my recorded domestic seating preferences; more in line with my International data. It was a simple thing to change to 5C ...
