the boarding pass experiment

Flying on southwest implies open seating.. to gain some control of the passengers, southwest assigns "groups" based on the time you checked in - Groups A, B, and C.

Typically I'm running late and always end up in Group C ... this translates to being stuck in the middle of two stank large individuals, not having overhead bins to put my luggage in, among other such unpleasant experiences...

So I thought I'd try something new.

The pictures illustrate my maneuver - just remember: lay low and time it right. When the ticket agent is looking down is a perfect chance to blend into Group C and start boarding.

Bon voyage!
