The Most Effective Way To Board An Airplane

You can file this one under "Things that are only interesting to Brett," but I'm glad an astrophysicist figured out the most efficient way to board an airplane.  And I love how complex it is.  Then again, I've been through enough airports to know that people aren't very agreeable when it comes to the pre-boarding process, so actually organizing them successfully while in the waiting area (which this system relies on) is probably difficult.

But in a world where people were 1) on time and 2) relatively competant...then its an interesting experiment that would save money for airlines and stress for travelers.

  1. it totally interests me too, however it kind of discounts the idea of people traveling together. few people fly alone.

    also i think they should just let that group of people who lines up to get on 2 hrs before the flight get on last. those fuckers are so fucking eager but they have no ability to do things efficiently. I hate them.
