Usability peeve

I helped my in-laws with online NW Airlines check in. Turns out the resulting boarding passes don’t page break correctly when printed from a mac. I had to increase my viewing font-size in safari in order to avoid passes running off page one and continuing on page two.

How easy could it have been to do a print format that works? They must not have even tested on macs nor did they alert me my browser was invalid.

Something else – the url of their thank you page is “CheckInFailed”

Check In Failed

About Ken Judy

I am an executive manager, software developer, father and husband trying to do more good than harm. I am an agile practitioner. I say this fully aware I say nothing. Sold as a tool to solve problems, agile is more a set of principles that encourage us to confront problems. Broad adoption of the jargon has not resulted in wide embrace of these principles. I strive to create material and human good by respecting co-workers, telling truth to employers, improving my skills, and caring for the people affected by the software I help build.
