But Airports are restricted areas.
You, visitors (though I don't think this happens anymore) and your hand 
luggage is scanned when you enter.
As far as I know the Boarding Passes are fed into a reader....these are 
probably due for replacement.
It would be in the passengers interest if the airport could track where 
they are and perhaps let them know what is happening with their 
flight...say if they are sitting in a lounge or bar.
