    They are similar statements, but 'drag your feet' implies she is intentionally working slowly, where the first statement does not explain why she spent a lot of time.

    ... issuing a boarding pass, right?

    I would rather say: She dragged her feet on issuing a boarding pass.

    I don't think I would use "dragged her feet" over something as simple as the issuing of a boarding pass. I associate dragging one's feet with longer, more complex processes.

    If she was deliberately slow with the boarding pass, I might say "She took her time issuing the boarding pass."
