So airport was packed yesterday. Luckily the agent by check-in directed us to a different area when we told her we were going to Paris, and the second area had shorter lines. We checked in, went down to security (missing Chris and his Elite Status), waited and finally got to the point where they check your boarding pass and your ID and guess what? The CO check-in person gave us two boarding passes for Mom and none for Sammi! So, I sent Mom and Jake through while Sammi and I went back to the check-in area again where the lines had grown huge.
I flagged down another agent and she let me skip the line after I explained what happened and directed me to a kiosk where we were able to check in Sammi and return to Security where we had to wait in a much longer line before we finally got through.
So, lesson learned, don't leave the check-in counter until you've confirmed you have boarding passes for each and every member of your party.
