Printing Easyjet Boarding Passes

09/28/2009 1:42 AM

Easyjet allows you to print your boarding pass at home for some flights.

However, the print preview always knocks off the tear off strip at the bottom, and you have to reset all your margins. I have tried to explain the problem to EJ but like many corporations they do not like feedback because they sense it will be negative, and so have FAQs and answers that don't deal with your problem, leaving you to contact them in ways that usually end with your pressing what is called the SUBMIT button, but which is probably a CLEAR MESSAGE button.

My guess is that the boarding pass page is formatted for the check- in desk printers which would print longer than A4, and they haven't bothered to think that we might not have such facilities at home.

If you are attempting to print to 8.5x11" paper, the problem with Easyjet is their forms are formatted to fit on a sheet of A4 paper which is almost 3/4" longer than the US standard sheet of 11". It could also be that the printer is cutting off the bottom because it cannot feed the last 1/4" or so of paper. In any case, save the page to a document app. such as Word, reformat it to 8.5x11 or shrink the page down somewhat by resetting the Scale Factor and then print it.

I've been printing Southwest Airlines boarding passes for several years now, on several different printers, and all the info you really need is on the top half of the sheet. The bottom half is just advertisements. Of course I and they are both in the USA, where 8.5x11" paper is standard, but the point is that EasyJet could learn from SWA.

dkwarner,

your comment about SWA and 8.5x11" paper being standard in the USA applies equally to EasyJet and Europe where A4 paper size is the standard. Unfortunately, the 2 standards are not the same standard! Perhaps SWA and USA could equally learn from EasyJet and Europe.

Nope, the Europeans are wrong. They are always wrong.

In terms of using the metric system instead of the stupid inches, feet, etc., I totally agree.

I was referring to getting the important stuff on the TOP of the page; then who cares if the bottom does not print?
