IIRC, 20+ years ago, BA would board the plane this way, at least for short haul. It surprised me, but the FA told us that many of the business travellers preferred to board at the last moment. Some lingered at the lounge, others arrived at the airport just in time. I suggest that the security procedures post-9/11 and the desire to offer consistent experiences across alliance loyalty schemes have led to the elimination of this variant of boarding.
