SJC-LHR BA278 on last week.

Groups were queueing in an orderly fashion. I was travelling with two colleagues, only one of us (not me) was a GCH. Group 1 was short-ish, Group 2 was very long: The SJC-LHR route seems dominated by status holding folks, all the Silicon Valley folks on business trips.

Group 1 was correctly called first, and had a gate-agent pre-checking that passports matched boarding passes, which always makes boarding faster.

We managed to sneak 2 Silvers in with our Gold in Group 1: it was a bit cheeky: it was noticed and but we got a pass from the gate agent pre-checking passports when the GCH said: "They're with me".
