That's how they handled UA974 today at SFO. "There are going to be about 100 passengers who cannot be on this flight. If the BP scanner rejects your BP, you have to get out of the way and will not be on the flight."

No calls for volunteers; UC also was refusing to entertain proactive reroutes. "They will take care of rebooking at the gate."

GAs yelled a few times and several pax raised voices at perceived line-jumpers.

Not well handled at all, but not as bad as the OP's experience fortunately!
