Re: Scanning boarding cards

One of my pet peeves when flying out of the UK - I'm buying a fucking newspaper and you need to scan my boarding pass? Am I getting it tax free?

I used to argue with them about it and on a couple of occasions they literally refused to let me buy the paper. Now I just let it go to save my blood pressure and because the people who make the policy don't work the tills, but it's a stupid process and seems to be confined to the UK.
