I fly over 75k with UA, but last week I had the opportunity to fly AA, and CO, wow what a difference. I find the UA boarding process the worst organized in the industry,
|Quoting DeltaRules (Reply 12):|
-Any airline with boarding groups or Zone Boarding. Awful. If I have seat 12A & get zone 9 (happens 9 times out of 10), I don't want to have to crawl over the person in 12B who somehow boarded in zone 3 and 12C who got zone 5.
|Quoting Bridogger6 (Reply 14):
Actually US has a zone boarding system designed to prevent JUST that. They board windows to aisles while simultaneously boarding back to front. Like a reversed pyramid. It was based on studies done by ASU that HP ended up adopting and then with the merger, the whole airline adopted this process.
It works very well when followed correctly.

Maybe if you were 1K or upgraded to First Class more often then you'd experience the wonder of red carpet boarding
|Quoting D950 (Reply 17):|
Actually I am in First 90% of the time, but as you yourself noted, the line starts forming an hour before flight time, I guess my point was, the United personel do NOTHING to stop it

|Quoting David21487 (Reply 21):|
But now the rules have been changed and ALL Medallion members and SkyTeam Elites are eligible to board in zone ONE. On Thursdays and Fridays working mainline CMH-ATL flights (which are usually full those days) you have upwards to 70 people who are eligible to board with the first zone
