'Atlanta airport’s Terminal F has become the “first biometric terminal” in the United States.
And Detroit is next…
As of December 1, Delta Airlines rolled out biometric scanning for air travel at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), Terminal F.
International passengers will be able to use facial recognition scans from “curb to gate” to get through every facet of their air travel.
While the face scans are lauded as a great way to save time, they really aren’t as you’ll see below.
I’m sure any travel-weary person can think of many ways that air travel could become more convenient and efficient. I mean, one of the strangest paradoxes of our technologically advanced world is that it’s 2018 and air travel is the most miserable experience. It becomes more miserable every year and no one even wants to hear comedians talk about it anymore because miserable air travel is such a foregone conclusion.
Not to be mean, but people have already lined up before the biometric scanners like sheep, seemingly without even flinching at the new development. Or rather, more like deer in the headlights. Nothing new here…just your friendly neighborhood facial scans. ZAP!
Biometric scanners are optional…for NOW.
For now, the biometric scanners are being presented as an “option.” Delta et al. call it an option any time they reference biometric scanning perhaps to soften the edges a bit. Of course, in time this will be the only option for air travel and Delta is in a hurry to roll out the scanners at the other international airports.
But please don’t believe the tripe about how this is all for everyone’s convenience. It clearly isn’t when you see who Delta partnered with to make biometric scanners a reality.'
