Continental Tests Self-Service Boarding at Houston Intercontinental

Continental Airlines is testing a self-service boarding procedure at Houston Intercontinental that allows passengers to scan their own boarding pass at the gate, rather than relying on an agent to do it for them.  This system in Houston, which is used by 14 other airlines around the world, is a first for the US.   While this will not exactly revolutionize boarding for passengers, it will speed up the boarding process, which will be helpful long-term.  Expect to see these self-serve check-ins at airports around the country within a year.
