How to get around Qantas booking errors
That will speed up the process loading and unloading planes. Would also help if the agents checked to make sure all of the carry ons fit the max size allowed by the airline. Call boarding all at once; elite and F pax can queue in the Priority lane while all others queue in Main. They just jump in line even if their group is last and plead ignorance to the boarding agent. That trick never seems to work on the some carriers. Perhaps they are trained for it, or are just more used to it….
Fortunately, I only ever travel with a backpack that fits under the seat in front of me, even on business trips. He can quote from the onion, the sad reality is its like a pack of hyenas surrounding the gate at boarding time.

And now with American boarding flights prior to the posted boarding time its making it harder to time when exactly to be at the gate if you are in the lounge relaxing instead of gate watching. Even boarding in Europe for LH-flights has become as hazard. When the SAS-Light concept was introduced, the concept meaning flight only no-check-in-bags , boarding has become a night mare. As opposed to checking in your over-night kit, people tend to go on vacations for days with carry-ons only.
This again makes a problem when boarding late of course. Selling too cheap tickets, would this in the long-run challenge the punctuality? I love The Onion. Through satire it seems to get at the heart of the matter better than actual journalism more often than it should. I probably have been once or twice, but I am typically only carrying a small backpack that fits under the seat and sitting in an aisle seat. When those 2 things are true I will almost always wait until last call.
My ideal flight is when I am the last one on the plane just before doors close, and the first one off. I think that has only actually happened a few times, though. People always do seem to be in a massive hurry to pack themselves into a metal tube with a bunch of strangers. I flew with Emirates from Melbourne to Auckland last week and boarding for the A was called for 4 separate zones.

- Tempest Valley Murders!
- Con gli occhi chiusi (Italian Edition)!
Sitting with line of sight to the gate agent I saw several dozen passengers walk up, and then get turned away as there zone had not been called. They even had a Flight Attendant walking around the boarding lounge with a mini sandwich board advertising which zones were boarding and yet still these pax kept walking up to the gate and milling around there like a flock of sheep.
Then — get turned around and go back to their seats.

Quite amusing really. Some people just think that boarding calls only apply to other people not themselves. Pretty sure there that none of them even knew what Status even is. Sadly, before the days of getting status boarding advantage back when Delta was using the seating algorithm that assigned people in the front of economy in aisle seats boarding in Zone 9, I was a bad girl! I would make friends with other passengers in the boarding area who had better zones and I boarded with them. Now, with status and normally flying F and J and boarding very early in the process, I feel great empathy for the poor souls in Zone 9 who are forced board late and gate check.
Gate fleas, as they are affectionately known.
One of my biggest travel pet peeves. Unless you are flying Southwest, you have a seat assignment and, if worse comes to worse, the attendant will check your bag.
A joke from The Onion the lead in may be, but it introduces a real and inconvenient issue when travelling, notably in the US. People are jockeying for priority in no small part since the carry on baggage situation in the US has become an absurdity with far too many bags for the overheads.
One within size limit carry on bag, one person, please, and appropriately managed by the airline staff! I usually fly in First, bulkhead-window because I am somewhat claustrophobic. Darn right I board first if I can! Skip to main content. We're sorry, something went wrong. Please try again. About this product. Stock photo.click here
