Just glance at a few screens and you are all set for your flight. That is Delta Air Lines' promise in debuting the first-ever all biometric terminal in the US. It sits in Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, and lets customers check-in from curb to gate with facial recognition.

Without needing to pull out their passport. The camera scans your face and compares it against a US Customs and Border Protection database. Then you check your bags, head through security and board at any gate on Terminal F. For now, it is limited only to direct international flights.

A Delta news release says the system will lead to fewer lines, improve security and save passengers nine minutes when boarding a wide body plane.
