Is Everyone On This Flight Platinum?

Saturday, September 02, 2006

Pet peeve #43 for travelling: When the gate agent announces that First Class and elites may now board, the entire gate area stands up and tries to board the aircraft. And the gate agent does nothing. Is it really possible that all 300 people on this flight are Platinum? Wow.

It's fairly rare that you see them deny someone in coach boarding at that time, even though they're clearly not elite or riding up front.

So what's the point of having separate boarding?

Frankly, I'd rather the airlines boarded First Clast last. Have the flight attendants fiercely guard the overhead bins in the first cabin, and give the people in front the luxury of spending a little more time in the terminal rather than getting hit in the head by the tuba of a passing coach passenger. Then we wouldn't have to be put out that they don't offer us a pre-flight drink any more.
