Just found this:

Do travelers need to bring a paper printout of their travel authorization to the airport?

No. DHS will be able to communicate a travelerís ESTA status to the carriers. However, DHS recommends that travelers print out the travel authorization application response in order to maintain a record of their traveler authorization application number and to have confirmation of their ESTA status.

Fingers crossed we will be ok :unsure:
