Time Is My Side

The nation's fifth-largest passenger airline carrier, Northwest Airlines, has just announced they are doing away with row by row boarding citing the change will knock an average of 5 minutes to 10 minutes off boarding times. Although as orderly as an elementary school fire drill, herding adults like cattle to the slaughterhouse into an airplane one row at a time, no matter how you look at it, really couldn't get any more inefficient ... even if you tried. For that matter, that logic doesn't speak too well for your kids safety at school either. What's really scary is the amount of time this boarding policy has been in use, and nobody ever questioned if there was possibly an easier way to get people on the plane ... and we trust them to get us across the Atlantic Ocean on time.
