The last airline ticket I used afforded me “premier” access. That is, I could board the plane before the general group of ticket holders.
Here’s the wrinkle: more than two-thirds of the ticket holders had “premier” access. More than two-thirds.
That’s upwards of 250 passengers waiting in line to board early.
When everyone is given special status, the status isn’t very special.
I thought it was amusing. Worth discussion, for sure.
But as you might imagine, there were plenty of sour faces in line.
