I am hoping this new system will work out, but i still think it would be best when booking your flight online you should be able to assign your seating just like every other airline does. This way now you should be able to call the back of the plane to start boarding first by there row# I think this would be a lot easier & efficient. Also with pre-boarding, families with children under the age of 5 (not under 12) should pre-board & it should only be the parents of the children not the entire party. also preboard should also be for people that can't walk & need a wheelchair to get on because preboarding now is geting way out of hand, people just coming up with all excuses to get on even when they don't have a blue pre-boarding pass and go up to the gate person to tell there reason ( such as one woman complaining that she needs to be closer to the bathroom, or another that just can't walk that great & then when getting off the plane she's running fast as can be. also if your an older person not in a wheelchair & can walk & stand in preboarding line all that time til its ready to board & your flying with someone younger I don't see that fare to be on that line, I can wait for you to board if you happen to be in front of me). You see some people on that line that are standing & walking & yet they are pre-boarding, for what reason. I always took pre-boarding from long ago to be only people in wheelchairs & families with young young kids. Whose to say that someone who has a brace on or bandages & crutches with them are being honest, these are thing you always have that are yours from any previous accident & can use them when you want. All these issues are you suppose to have a Doctor note or not? I hope this new boarding will work out for the best, i still think assigned seating is the best way to go by calling row #'s from back of plane.
