The new Google Now Boarding Pass card will grab your electronic boarding pass after you are checked in at the airport location. The feature will work only with supported airlines, of course...

Huh!? When I check-in, I can receive a mobile ticket sent to me SMS, which scans at security...passbook didn't introduce jack.

Been doin that for a while, but with GNow, it's even more seamless.

The whole concept of Google Now is completely different to Passbook. Passbook specifically deals with ID, coupons, and ways of paying. Google Now is made for convenience and to aggregate everything that you may need to know and have - in this a boarding pass. Stop whining because iOS is under threat.

I love Google now but sadly most of their features are only compatible in US and Europe, I can't see my own stock price in my country :(

Now all Google needs is to force the carriers to let Google have the Wallet application.

This feature is available in most airline apps as soon as you purchase the ticket. Google Now has been very hit or miss...quite a few of the promised cards don't work (movie times, package tracking) and it sure does eat battery.

GNow works great on my DNA and Nexus 7. I recently just ordered a package and it showed fine, remember the card has to be enabled and web history on.

Yeah, check. Nothing. Some other cards do work fine. Lots of the same reported at XDA...just saying, overall it seems to be spotty.
