    The there’s me who flys Southwest Airlines 95% of the time....and Southwest uses the randomized seasting system. Southwest still uses boarding groups, but all it is, is a way to catergoize who gets on the plane first. If you want to be with your friends or family, you either check in together at the same time so you’ll get a spot in line next to each other, or you can drop back to the lower group and board together there. You can also spend a bit extra money to get early check in so a high chance of being in the A boarding group or even in priority boarding which is A1-A15. Essentially, Southwest plays around with and sells perks that determines who is first in line. But once you’re through that jetway, it’s a free for all for whichever seat you want.

    ok, but if you number the seats at the gate, put that number on the tickets that are purchased, you can get that perfect robotic human boarding order

    The correct lineup should be delivered to the passengers in such a way that they could follow through on this.
    How about putting a dynamic flight seat ID on every seat in the gate waiting room, which updates itself based on what plane is at the gate. The seats is then placed in the most effective order so that the waiting passengers just stand up then march in. I don't know if a setup like this would work though, since this theory is based on 250 healthy identical individuals. There would be concerns regarding splitting people up, but you could probably fix that by making exeptions for voulnerable people.

    Pay to sit first. Yet any way you slice it the plane won't take off before everyone is seated.

    The theoretically *best* boarding method is to take the top off the plane, dump the passengers from above directly down into the seats and with their bags held over the lockers so it gets into place just before they reach their seats.
    It may not become the most popular boarding scheme, though.
    More popular, and perhaps even more efficient, is to have the pasengers board in a container the airport and then push the whole thing into the plane body.

    The best thing about flying is that once you are past security every thing is out of your control. Relax and enjoy it. It's a rare break in life. Planes usually have a scheduled departure time so the amount of combined time waiting to sit and sitting is generally the same. Boarding strategy is irrelevant unless the equipment was really late arriving and a quick turn around is needed. Even then, while you are queuing, people are working all around the plane. The movement of people (and traffic) is like water. It will go where it can go. If standing in line stresses you out, then pack light, book an aisle seat and wait in the terminal until the end when you can stroll aboard and sit right down.

    God this is exactly why I hate flying, it would be so much easier if everyone would just check their damn bags and maybe put smaller items like laptop bags or backpacks under the seat in front of them it would save so much time

    I've been bitching about the window first method for over eight years now... Finally someone people might listen to says something.... The Steffen method still has the seat jockey problem. Window first means no seat jockey and plenty of space for the person to stand inside the seating area (of the as yet unfilled aisle seat) while stowing their crap up above.. they ARE out of the aisle and the rest of the cows can moo-ve along!

    (Sadly the "nutcracker method" is unlikely to happen... but window first isn't THAT complicated!)

    In the old days planes were boarded off the tarmac. That was neat. You could turn at the top of the stairs and do your "presidential" resignation wave. Yell to the boarders "It's a cook book!!!!"

    It's all a psychological illusion of getting there faster. Why do we need to optimized a rush on seating? I usually fly cheap so I'm always in the back, last boarding group. I wait to the end, everyone is mostly seated, and I walk on, all the way to the back with little delay. Why would I care if I wait outside an additional 10-15 minutes to board. Why would I want to be in my cramped seat even longer?

    Getting off frequently I have seen people do some combination of "position" vs "front to back" -- because while the window seat people ahead are hitting their head and climbing over armrests the people in the isle behind have already got their stuff and zip by. Is there really anything much more efficient?

    The cheapest seats are at the back of the plane, usually purchased by people who don’t fly much and, therefore, bring their entire closets with them. If you board these cheapskates first, they will consume ALL of the overhead bin space, leaving NOTHING for first class passengers who paid the most. Brilliant.
