The End of Paper Tickets

Just for the record, beginning June 1, all airlines (with a few very minor exceptions) will go exclusively to electronic ticketing, according to the International Air Transport Association, a trade group representing 240 airlines. Most travelers already use electronic tickets anyway, so this should be a non-event. But for those of us who remember those multi-part forms with red ink "carbons" between copies, it’s a sad passing in the age of travel.
