I fly 50 round trips a year and have flown on 2 segments since the new boarding program. I possessed an A16 and A17 respectivly. In both cases, when the gate agent said "Welcome aboard A1-A30." passengers who were previously sitting in front of the gate cut in front of us with A16 on. I looked at the boarding pass # of the person who cut in front of me in the first leg, A27. When the same thing happened on the second leg, I asked the person in front of me and was told to "xxxx off." If the gate agent does not enforce the rules, the new boarding procedures are doomed to fail.
Why not board in groups of five. I can't see this slowing down the boarding procedure.
