How is this good business? According to USA Today, the airline wanted to address the “inequality” among passengers. I can think of many other areas of inequality, puh-lease! Letting a mother flying alone with kids go first, for example, only helps the whole entire plane board on time. I think anyone standing behind kids in line to get to his or her seats will agree. Pre-boarding allow the whole process to go smoother, (and saves the mom a few grey hairs.)
Hopefully, more airlines will not follow suit. Currently, the following airlines do allow family preboarding:
Delta, AirTran – 2 years and younger, Continental (will it remain with the United merger?), JetBlue- 2 and under, Frontier -5 and under.These are just a few…
What human would mind if a family with young children gets to their seats first?
What do you think?
