Weekend read: The tyranny of aircraft boarding

I seem to have featured a disproportionately high number of articles about air travel in this series of weekend reads, and I’m adding to that collection today. Chris Ziegler has written an entertaining and informative post for The Verge, in which he casts aircraft boarding as a microcosm of a broken industry. I suspect he realises that the problem is greater than efficiency alone, but his exclusion of all other aspects of the boarding process does make for an interesting read, and leaves the reader to ponder why the system is as it currently is. Some of the comments are quite entertaining, too!
