All airlines encourage passengers to always check in their flight online. This is a win-win for both passengers and the airline. For the airline, it saves them resources, personal and paper. On the passenger’s side, it saves them time at the airport and also give them the chance to chose where to seat on the aeroplane.
Aside from the time online check-in saves, sometimes when you’re late to the airport, you may be allowed to board since you have checked in already.

Two major disadvantages of online check-in are
- You cannot change your ticket online again. You have to contact the airline to offload you. The airline may direct you to go to the airport for the offloading. What if you were not offloaded what happens?
- The second disadvantage is, if you were not offloaded, the ticket will enter no-show and you will be charged a fee before the ticket can be changed. In some cases, if you were not offloaded, the airline will count you among passengers that boarded the flight.
What this means is, you will lose the ticket and if you do not go to the airline office to prove you did not travel, that’s the end of the ticket. I have experienced it before and it was not funny. I lost the ticket.
