    Mythbusters is taking this to task on the 1/25 show. Should be fun to watch and put a lot of theories to rest...

    Already on my DVR to record :)

    That they'd air the episode in 12 days. Reading is FUNdamental!

    Also, all of these studies have assumed that the passengers are all in the gate area when boarding starts and that they behave rationally in the process. Maybe MythBusters will be the first to actually mimic the reality of the process but I doubt it. Nearly every bit of research ever says that the idea of elite boarding or putting first class on board first is wrong vis a vis process efficiency. That doesn't stop the airlines from continuing to do it anyways.

    Appreciate an update if there's anything worth knowing about. Otherwise, the best tips known so far are from George Clooney in "Up in the Air"! ;)
