A combination of section by section boarding (already being done) and either reducing the size of carry-on baggage or completely eliminating the overhead compartments.

Getting [i]in[/i] the plane instead of [i]on[/i] the plane. Seems to be less wind in there, too. :shiftyninja:

Start at the back and work forwards.

Latecomers have to wait until everyone else is boarded.

The problem is not getting on the plane, it is getting off of it. All the people who have a connecting flight are put on the back of the plane, all the people who have carry on luggage and are unable to get that luggage out of the overhead compartment efficiently (because they are older, shorter, weaker or don't care that they are holding up the line) are all at the front and hold up the entire cabin.

Find a way to mathematically fix getting off the plane, and then I will be impressed.

Meh... have two gates, problem fixed (front and back) :p

(new problem: logistics and price :D)

But yea, passengers who have to take another plane should get priority.


Also, I think I'd still like being able to sit where I want.
I love seeing the a wing and I love sitting next to the window.

You mess with my preferences and I'm unlucky :p
Also, waiting this long in the boarding area, why don't they check the tickets first and then let you into the actual boarding area ffs?

I hate the hold ups on taking flights.

I'm in favour of back to front boarding (primary sort order) and also incorporating Window to Aisle boarding with it. I'm sure mythbusters tested something like this in past.

Although, about 75% of people boarding a plane are incapable of waiting their turn which makes any method useless. If it was left to me, I'd open the doors and say to everyone you have 15 mins before the doors close ;) Bit mean but people would certainly rush!
