Flash Your Korean Air Boarding Pass for On-the-Ground Discounts
December 20, 2012 at 10:30 AM
We’ve seen all kinds of advertisements and stuff scrolled across our boarding passes—even a little Sudoku game now and then. Now there’s an airline upping the ante on the boarding pass offerings, as they’re handing out their own version of coupons, discounts, and other deals. Sure it’s a chance for them to sell a little bit of advertising and making a couple bucks, but maybe you’ll actually benefit.
It’s Korean Air that’s getting into the boarding pass coupon-clipping game, as they’re releasing something called “Excellent Boarding Pass.” Like we said a minute ago, it’s all about providing benefits and discounts to stuff like restaurants, movies, banks, and kind of anything else where you can save a few dollars.
Participating establishments will be ready to go—at least in theory—so all you have to do is flash your boarding pass to one of the places along with your ID within seven days of your departure date. Details are kind of limited at this point, but if it's anything like what other international airlines have done with associating deals with boarding passes, it should be around 15% off here and there. Save that boarding pass after your flight, and you'll hopefully find out.
