Travel booking systems ‘wide open’ to abuse – report


Re: Scanning boarding cards

The reason is that they can claim certain taxes back if you are travelling internationally. It is just to allow them to make some extra money and no other reason, not required by law unless they are selling you duty free goods at a discounted price.

But, you are right the person on the till is usually just trained to require the boarding pass for every passenger - if more people refused then they would stop the policy.
