Is This The Biggest Boarding Pass That Has Ever Been Printed?

For years airlines have allowed you to print your own boarding pass at home. They don’t even usually tell you what kind of paper you’re allowed to use. We know you’ll cause some hysteria if you generate boarding passes for flights you don’t actually have a ticket for. But beyond that, are there limits to what you can get away with?

Do not ask your friend to print your boarding pass!

There’s nothing actually new you can pull off at an airport that hasn’t been done before. It turns out this same gag was pulled just two years ago.

This is actually a pretty good gag, but if you decide to try it at home it’s a good idea to have a backup copy that’s smaller – just in case. And beware, travel alone is subject to flight shaming – just imagine if you waste paper, too!
