Do-it-yourself boarding passes — either printed on your own computer or on your phone — are par for the course these days. I can’t remember the last time I used a kiosk, much less a check-in staff member…) But there are self-printed boarding passes, and then there are BOARDING PASSES.

A traveler by the name of William Bryson decided to see if a poster-sized boarding pass would be honored. He succeeded, and his blog has the photos to prove it. He made it through TSA — even getting some laughs — and onto his flight. He even hit the lounge. One photo is below, but check his site for the full photo timeline.

This isn’t 2011 — he actually did this over three years ago — but it’s new to me, and probably to you as well. (To put even more age on it, his boarding passes were on Northwest, which isn’t even a brand anymore…)

    Haha! I never would have even thought about doing that. Looks like he was coming from Alaska! That’s where I live and I should totally do that on my way home to visit my family in Florida this summer. They would get a kick out of that!

    I would be surprised if his boarding pass would have been accepted on most of the European airlines who seem to make life as difficult for their passengers as possible .. Good on you William.

    Excellent work by Tropical Kitchen! My sister’s kitchen cabinets are exquisite! I have seen quite a number of kitchen cabinets and cabinet doors in my life but my sister’s were the most beautiful! Since I have long been wanting to have kitchen remodeling and new kitchen cabinets, I called up Tropical Kitchen of Hialeah FL to do the job. And it was the best decision I have ever made, the result was amazingly beautiful. The cabinets and vanities are so polished and gorgeous! And they are lovelier than my sister’s!

    Haha, that’s funny. I wonder how small you could make one? I’m guessing they would have a bigger problem with a small boarding pass compared to a really big one.

    Ha! That is definitely a BOARDING PASS if I’ve ever seen one. I love it when folks insert a bit of humor in their day. It brings everybody up! Thanks for sharing!
