Ever Wonder Why Airline Board People in The Front Rows Of The Plane First?

Submitted
 
The back-to-front method proved to be the slowest method tested. It was noted that the fastest method (no assigned seats) ironically had the lowest satisfaction score, but there were also methods that much faster and much more satisfying (e.g. WILMA) than the back-to-front method.

Precludes the aircraft from sitting on it’s tail.

Well ya that’s true and usually the people upfront pay more for their tickets as well. Lol. But you said it best I would rather keep the nose heavy then risk damaging the tail when it struck the ground. Lol

I once observed a B727 without the ventral airstairs extended(assumed it was towed to the gate) started to go down by the tail while boarding. Unfortunately, the auto leveling on the bridge had been turned off and when the tail went down the bridge peeled 1L right off the hinges!

In this forum the topics are all aviation related. You sir/madam should stop sending pointless Squawks. If you are going to be pointless. Why don't you find a topic that excites you. This forum no longer needs pointless Squawks that you continuously bombarding us with gibberish and innuendo. Find another hobby because all you do is repeat the odd topics with nothing new. Please stop.
