Ryan Bingham enjoys living out of a suitcase for his job traveling around the country firing people, but finds that lifestyle threatened by the presence of a potential love interest and a new hire.
When Alex is at the Atlanta airport, she asks Ryan if he knows a good place for ribs. Ryan tells her to go to "Fat Matt's", a real rib shack on Piedmont Avenue. Jason Reitman is a big fan of the restaurant. In return, owners Matt and Kelly Harper presented ... ...
Personally? This the most personal situation you'll going to enter, so before you try to "revolutionize" my business, I'd like to know you actually know my business.
The movie shows Ryan going in the AA first class line, checking in at a kiosk and then being greeted by a counter agent. They do not put kiosks directly in front of the first class check-in agent.

Finally, the whole point of using the kiosk is to NOT talk to the person at the counter, so even if he had used the machine, he would not be greeted by anyone.
Over the end credits, the camera glides over the clouds. Much like the view from a plane.
