I expect that they'll do the standard thing and have us board by "zone numbers" out of a desire to cut down on the time it takes to board so that we get on the plane in an efficient manner.
But it turns out that the "zone number" system is really poorly thought out.
In fact, new evidence suggests that it's worse than letting people board RANDOMLY.
Because everyone in a certain zone gets on at the same time and they get in each others' way trying to find their seats, stow their carry-on things, get seated, and buckle up. They're all seated next to each other. Of course they're going to get in each others way!
Randomness is better than that.
But it seems there's a better way still–designed by a Fermilab astrophysicist who, I'm guessing, is as frustrated with commercial air travel as the rest of us.
It helps keep people out of each others' way and cuts boarding times in half.
Maybe the airlines will implement it and we'll get some relief.
Probably not by later today, though.
