Facial recognition: just got on a United flight in IAD where they used facial ID instead of a boarding pass. Amazingly and eerily fast for everyone in line. Anyone see this elsewhere?

Seen it at IAD only. Is this for an overseas flight?

Yes it is. Which I'm hoping means the photo came from a previous passport scan and not from other places.

Delta is going to bring this to all their airports and gates for international flights alone by end of 2019. However airlines are still on the hook to ensure passengers have their passports and visa if necessary depending on their destination, not sure which step of the process they would do this check especially if a passenger doesn’t have a bag to check. Are they still asking to have your passports out at the gate? CBP already has your biometric information, airlines would most likely just be connecting to that system to authenticate.

And Immigration is using it at the global entry kiosks as well. It is alarming but cool. You just approach the kiosk, touch the screen and let it take your picture. Prints the form with all your personal and flight info. Takes 15-20 seconds total. The geek in me loves this, the conspiracy theorist hates it...

Does anyone actually get complimentary upgrades due to United status? I just hit gold and so far it seems like a hoax.

Got an offer from Honeywell. Technical sales role. Base 160k and 70k bonus once Quota is met. +25k sign-on. Fully remote option. 50% travel. Is this a good offer ? Currently making 165k at ACN, no bonus last year.
