hi benjamin shrapnel here, professional airline pilot, I disagree. I think that the video is well made, well crafted, but your arguments are dogshit. please learn about the proper boarding proceedures at my Master Class using promo code "BENISBOARD". thanks!

Here's something slower than just front to back. The time will increase when you go front to back, isle to window. It increases time by having people move more. Why is because unless the stowage under the seats has no walls to prevent moving luggage horizontally, people will have to take their luggage out of storage, stow the luggage again, and move over. The time increases significantly if someone has a lot of luggage.

How great it would be to return to this as a need. 2020 now has us distanced, and mostly empty planes, rendering this moot.

So Mr. Grey, if the onboarding methods suck, how can they be fixed? Can you do a video on that?

I don't get what goes inside the mind of the last guy, during unboarding, when he stands up and keeps standing during the whole time. Might as well keep sitting till their turn comes.

ok, you are orange, so ou get middle and you are blue, so you get aisle!

There is a way for fast deplaning. The only reason it's not done this way is because cattle-class people are stupid and can't listen to instructions.
The left aisle row moves into the aisle, grabs their bags, and walks out.
The left middle row moves into the aisle, grabs their bags, and walks out.
The left window row moves into the aisle, grabs their bags, and walks out.
The right aisle row moves into the aisle, grabs their bags, and walks out.
The right middle row moves into the aisle, grabs their bags, and walks out.
The right window row moves into the aisle, grabs their bags and walks out.

Hey CGP Grey, I am a university student and currently am doing a project to analyze certain parameters (such as type of passengers, number of seats) would affect plane boarding time.
Would it be possible to share the simulation code so that I would have an idea of the logic behind the boarding methods (esp Steffen perfect boarding
and Steffen Modified boarding
Thank you for your time, and thanks for the insightful and entertaining video

this is way too late but..... what about 1-2-3-4-5-6? window top row is one window bottom 4, 1,2,3, aisle, 6,5,4, on the other side (since each side would board window through aisle), and all from 1 row come in at one with the back person first and the front person last, then all the people from one row get in at once

Wouldn't getting off the plane also be faster back to front? Because as the first back rows leave, the others are also preparing to get off and have room to move forward and funnel through, rather than holding up the entire plane by letting front off first. Or what about the steffen method in reverse? Middle alternates get off first so that there is less shuffling while someone is getting off. While they are funneling through, middle and window now become isle and middle and then repeat the process.
Easy way to make people do these better methods. Fine them if they don't follow the rules unless there is due cause for them not doing so, IE illness mental/physical that create hurdles in one way or another.
You don't follow the seating order that maximized efficiency and saves money? You get a fine, and it's part of the contract you effectively sign by using that airline.
You'd get people to listen real fast and during the transition where Steffen perfect becomes norm, airlines would make more money to pay their understaffed and overworked pilots and flight attendants (jk, that money is totally going to shareholders and company big wigs, but at least a monetary incentive will get the ball rolling).
You could also color code seats and numbers (including colors markers for those who are color blind that see this green or blue as grey or mix the two) along with the number and a visual representation of where their seat will be in the lay out of the plane to minimize confusion. We don't need to understand how it works, we only need to know where to go and how to get there. Do that and I think most people actually will follow.

can someone try to count parallels/pullaways in all of the boarding methods
Gummiel - 2 måneder siden
Wont be that useful most of the methods have an degree of randomness in it, as as such the amount of parallels and pullaways will vary from time to time. You would have to run a simulation of each method say 100 or so time and then check the average of it to get anywhere near a usefull number

Did Grey actually animate all of this himself? It's something that looks to be (relatively) simple to automate in e.g. Unity. It's not something that Grey would be able to do, but he could've get somebody to do that

what I don't understand is why when unloading, the right side of aisle seats gets up gets their bags and gets off, then the left aisle, then the right middle, then left middle, then right window, and finally left window. then, airlines could price those seats accordingly, closer to the outside you are, the more costly the ticket

I have a problem with the steffen modified passengers seemingly not having random orders. This is a near perfect steffen modified, where the plane somehow fills back to front within the boarding groups. And that happens for all groups, which is very unlikely.
(watchin the steffen modified again, it just seems that the boarding was ctrl+c ctrl+v 4 times for all the groups. I'm disapointed 🤔)

I have an idea, Instead of front to back to empty an airplane, we can have random people from the isle and procced, and we can rinse and repeat it for everyone on the plane until everyone is out.
