Re: DL/NYT article on the airport of the future

do any other airlines use RFID and real-time bag-tracking technologies?

I love it, on the Delta app, you get real-time updates as to when your bag gets loaded on the plane, when it is taken off the plane and when it is arriving at the baggage carousel.
