The RFID tag is encoded with the information on a passenger's boarding pass when placed in a bag drop area, and is summarily sent to its destination.

But is it any good?

ZDNet Australia tested the new systems and found that the system sadly had no intention of sending our cargo.

Watch the video."

Qantas runs into RFID issues

  • Ah Qantas bag check fail, I have heard nothing but bad things since they implemented, from the lack of staff to help, to the queues of people waiting due to technology meltdowns... hmmm, even less convinced after this video, more testing required I think...

      I flew out of Perth around xmas time (where they have implemented new automatic bag drop in the domestic terminal) and had no problems whatsoever with the bag getting to Brisbane.
      Although I dont know if that was with these new RFID bag tags or not.

If it happens once, it's a bug. If it happens twice, it's a feature. If it happens more than twice, it's a design philosophy.

Working...
