What's New In This Version:
● This release fixes a crash issue for iOS5 users.
● We have added boarding pass integration into Passbook.
From now on, all new boarding passes will be presented in Passbook. You'll be able to download them from the app as usual and continue to use boarding passes on your iPhone in over 100 airports worldwide.
By mid June we'll be enhancing Passbook boarding passes by adding direct links to them from your iPhone's lock screen as you're ready to fly. This will make it even easier for you to access your boarding pass on the move. We'll send you a message via the app as soon as these are enabled.
● We've also fixed a number of bugs and improved stability with this latest update.
You can download British Airways from the App Store for free.
