This one I’ll never get. Everyone will get on the plane. They’ll spend 10 minutes calling your name over even after everyone but you has boarded, before they close the door. And yet as soon as they call general boarding, everyone lines up and waits.
Even better is getting on the plane first. Now you get to sit in a hot space with no moving air while everyone else shuffles past you to get into their seats. No real air movement until the plane starts up. Not to mention the inevitable guy who packs tangible body odor as his personal item.
I do have to say they’ve at least started to address it with group boarding. Divide the plane into groups, board the back first. Less people sitting while everyone walks by. You’re still stuck on the plane for a bit if you’re sitting in the back.
Even then everyone queues up. There’s a huge mob around waiting for their group to be called.
Everyone will get on the plane. Seriously. Relax.
