Mobile? Not so much.

I’m flying to New York on Air Canada tomorrow, and today I received an email telling me that I could check in and print my boarding pass, or I could use their paperless checkin on my mobile phone:

You can now use Web Check-in or Mobile Check-in up to 24 hours prior to departure every time you travel. Select your seat, print your boarding pass, and even stand-by for an earlier flight or upgrade if eligible.

For Mobile Check-in, log on to and try out our new paperless boarding pass. Be sure to have your boarding reference number (XXXXXX) ready.

So I immediately went to use the mobile checkin on my iPhone, the pre-eminent mobile phone, only to see this message:

Only WML enabled devices are authorized to use this application.

Apparently the folks at Air Canada haven’t yet considered the possibility that mobile users might have full featured browsers.
