Pain free, 100% mobile check-in and boarding is here. Lufthansa does it really well. On your phone, browse to m.lufthansa.com. Enter your name and confirmation code, and they’ll let you select your seat, just like on the desktop web site. Confirm your check-in, and they’ll send you a text message or email with a link to your boarding pass.
Show your phone with the boarding pass and the 2D bar code on the screen to the nice security guard at the airport terminal. Place your phone on the 2D bar code scanner to board the plane. Enjoy the free German chocolate onboard. It couldn’t be easier.
Pro tip: Save your boarding pass on your phone’s local memory in case you can’t get a network connection at the airport. It’s really embarrassing when you hold up the line trying to download the bar code to show the nice security person that it’s a real boarding pass.
Pro tip #2: Peak around the corner at your Lufthansa gate, and you’ll find the coffee machine. Enjoy a free espresso!
