Re: Check-in System?

I've never understood "Check-in"

Other modes of transport have tickets. You buy a ticket , you get on the bus / train

Why cant we do that?

Nowadays you have "Check in at home!" up to 2 weeks before - that completely rules out all of the theories i had about what "check in" was . I Foolishy thought it might be something to do with confirming you'd turned up.

Now im even more lost.

Can somebody tell me what possible benefit / point of "check in online" is?
