Today, Delta Airlines announced that they are changing how they board airplanes. They announced that they are ditching boarding zones and are know going to board based on ticket type! The Atlanta based carrier is renaming, and even color coding, its boarding groups, and increasing the number per flight from six to seven or eight depending on the aircraft. The goal: a smoother, more clear-cut boarding process. This is to begin in 2019.

As someone who travels frequently, I welcome the change! I have always hated people pushing and rushing trying to get in front of the line to be number one when it doesn’t matter because you have assigned seats.
What is the communities thought on this?
