It seems the last thing on the collective mind of the airline industry is how to make traveling more pleasurable for passengers, but that doesn’t mean some smart cookies in coach aren’t thinking about it.
Astrophysicist (okay, maybe he rides first class) Dr. Jason Steffen applied his sizable grey matter to the issue of boarding a plane more efficiently and created a method that halves the time for this exercise in frustration.
In his method, window seats on alternate rows on one side of the plane boards first. Then alternating window seats on the other side. Then alternating middle seats on the original side, then alternating middle seats on the other side. And then on and on and on until the plane is filled. Watch the video, you’ll see a perfectly choreographed dance that maximizes aisle space and overhead compartments.
That will be an additional $25 a seat, please.
Innovations in travel.
