Apple Places Easter Egg For LOST Fans In iOS 6 Passbook Developer Video

On the left, a ticket in iOS 6’s new app, Passport. On the right, the horrific plane crash from Lost. Both are the same flight.

Watching the new WWDC 2012 developer video “Introducing Passbook, Part 1,” we couldn’t help but notice that about three minutes in, one of the example passes Apple uses to show off Passbook’s functionality is for a ticket on Oceanic Flight 815 from Sydney to Los Angeles.

If that fictional airline sounds familiar, it should: that’s the same airline and flight as the one which kicks off the events in the hit ABC television series, Lost.

Using that ticket in real life would see you stranded on a mysterious, time-shifting tropical island in the middle of nowhere, where you would have to wrestle with rampaging polar bears, sexy ladies, malevolent insect swarms and an enragingly stupid sixth season that basically boils all of the mysteries down to “a wizard did it.”

    All I have to say about this article is that the 6th season of LOST obviously went way over your head. Somehow in the 2 years since it ended, you still haven’t figured out the finale.

    That still reveals just how WRONG the lighting in that scene is…

    The basket was a metaphor for death, right?

    Makes me want to never fly a plane again. If my plane can tear in half as the Passbook claims, I’ll never fly a plane.
