All aboard to chaos


Time is money, not least for the air companies who chase the seconds in order to reduce the turn-around time, the time it takes to land the plane and then get it up in the air again. The most time consuming procedure here is letting the passengers off and especially filling the cabin with new passengers. The congestion in the middle aisle is often chaotic.

The most common method when boarding is the so-called block method, where you let the passengers who sit at the back of the plane board first, then those in the middle and finally those at the front. But in trials in the USA, with a full-scale model of a Boeing 757, it came to light that this method was the worst one of all, even worse than letting people just get on in any order!
