Hi again i have 2 questions so ill include both of them in here rather then making separate new threats. Firs question is as follow: It is my very first time i will be aventualy printing out from home my airline boarding pass ticket from qantas (domestic flight) I have a printer. I would be printing it out on a normal A4 paper.. But i still don't no either doing this is going to make it look like a real boarding pass ticket.. As you would normaly get these thcker smaller sqaure shape tickets that contains this black long bar code on the back of the boarding pass so that it slides thru this machine before u enter that gate by a qantas staff... I wouldnt no how they going to dare slide a normal thin A4 paper sizes thru that small machine ? Is it safe? What if it ends up cant barcode the paper correctly because the printer didnt print it out correctly? I need ink for my printer quite expensive.. and only got a new black ink but not enough in colour. So dont no either its going to print in black or in colour. either print it in high wuality or standard quality. Just because incase they need to barcode the paper.. if that ever works from a A4 paper print out page. Ive jsut never done this and so i dont want to end up been stuck out there with a boarding pass that looks fake and end up errors cant scan or such. sorry just been quite sure about this. Im not familia with all this as ive never done this online before. Its new experience for me. ------------- My second question. When doing it from home choose the seat you want to seat down on the plane 24hour before departer.. Simple just lock onto qantas website with your flight number stuff and you go thru directions and so on.. check in. I then would choose where i want to be seated... Lets say on the left side of the window view. Know when doing this showing a map online or a virtual map of the seats... If i was to choose a window seat well ebfore hand lets say 24hours before departer... can i choose where i want to be seated? im going to start very quickly in advance just so that no one is doing the same as me unless the page would be very slow making errors and such. If i was to be seated on a located area lets say the window view. And then i end up at the plane with that choosen seat... and someone comes along and say excuse me thats my seat. then what happens there? Computer mixups and seat mixups failor? Its just that when i oneday did this i just went to the airport 1 hour before departer and i told the staff counter i wanted a window view right at the back of the plane.. she then look and choose one. but when i got there on the plane this tourist person came and told me sorry love thats my seat. Showing on my ticket number window view.... Now what happen there? I thought qantas stuff has shown me the ticket with window view.. So confusing there with argueing thats my seat while someone comes alog and said thats my seat too shown on the ticket. Aniways someone would aventualy exlain all that both questions. Thanks just that im quite nervours and i always try make the best out of my trip flight. And to do so im going to check in 22hours or 20hours before departure just so i can be the first one to check in and have a full view of free seats to choose from. rather then do it on the last fiew hours where most likely it ends up been half seats taken. If you know what i mean. take care people. Im just making sure everything as im a self traveler and i do get quite nervours if things dont turn out to be correctly done. regards macgret.
