1. Overhaul the boarding process
You're not the only one who wonders how -- after nearly 100 years of commercial aviation -- we haven’t figured out how to efficiently board a plane. The people who work in our friendly skies also think the current process is ridiculous.
“We don't deplane back to front, so why would we board front to back?”
“Have ONE group that just boards. They board the plane, we walk on, shut the door, and leave. What's not to love?”
“You know what I’d love? Boarding music that doesn't make me want to murder a small chinchilla.”
