I completely agree pre boarding is out of control. I fly 4 or 5 times a week and have seen a dozen people board with one person on a walker, groups of 6-8 and today four losers in their mid 30s who preboarded with zero disability. They then joked around about how long it took them to get their oversized luggage in the bin while everyone waited. SW has this problem far in excess of any other airline. A couple of things have occurred to me. One, limit the number of people who can board with a preboarder to two as is now done with families with small children. Second, let business select at least board first. The situation is annoying enough I now fly other airlines for business whenever possible. Given that this problem is uniquely Southwest’s in its magnitude I expect they have more discretion than they are exercising.
