DO YOU GET SICK of waiting in line while boarding the plane? Standing in the aisle awkwardly while every single person in front of you takes an insane amount of time to get seated? Have you ever thought, while exhausted from jetlag and maybe just a little bit bitter about the awfulness of air travel, that there just has to be a better way to board than this?
Well, it turns out you were right. The way most airlines board their planes — back rows on first, moving forward — might seem intuitive, but it actually makes absolutely no sense, and is one of the least efficient ways to get everyone on board quickly. The good people at Vox put together this video on what the most efficient ways to board a plane are, and why those efficient ways will probably never actually be the way things are done.
