Boarding Procedures

Just a suggestion for tweaking the boarding procedures for AS. I have carefully observed the boarding process as an MVP this year. Generally, the idea of all rows boarding at once is okay. However, I would modify it slightly in the following ways:

1. First Class/MVPG -- stays the same
2. MVP and Partner Elites -- stays the same
3. Last 5 rows of the airplane -- gets people to the back of the plane first (less of a logjam if, say, a row 7 passenger takes their time getting situated)
4. All remaining rows -- once you get people to the back of the plane, it is easier for people toward the front to get situated without disrupting the boarding process

Have other people noticed the logjam that can occur at times? What do you think?
