Kudos on the new business concept, I think it is a step in the right direction for those of us who a) travel for business b) don't have all day to spend at the airport waiting in line and c) actually have someplace to go in a hurry when the plane lands. I for one will be happy to pay extra in order to get on and off the plane quicker and more efficiently.
There has been quite a bit of conversation here in regard to families and those travelling with small children. I for one would suggest that you preboard them prior to the business select and have them go all the way to the back of the plane. That way they will be able to get the kids situated without having other passengers trying to come down the aisle. I believe this was tried at one point in the past and was abandoned due to complaints about having to go to the rear.
The way I look at it is that if your major concern is keeping the family together you will not mind being at the back. If you don't want to preboard that you can get in line and fight it out with everyone else. Besides, at least at the back you are close to the restroom! I think most business travellers would be more than fine with the usual preboarders going first knowing that they will be at the back of the aircraft. I for one would be happy to carry your carseat back for you . . .knowing that there are rows and rows of seats between me and the your screaming and kicking kids! 🙂
