STT does this. I love it. Especially when it is time to get off.

Obviously anecdotal but it seems to be a faster way to board and de-board the aircraft.

Any particular reason that does not happen up here with AC, or this is ever discussed ?

Thoughts ?
VA and QF do a lot more in Australia - meals, wifi, checked bags.. included on domestic flights.

Doesnít YVR have a few dual boarding gates? I am fairly certain at least WS does but I feel like Iíve used them with AC too where they split economy and others

Hold on, I fly with QF a lot (QFF plat) and I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of flights they have boarded from front and rear in the last year (JQ 80% of the time, QF pretty rare)- what routes are you seeing this on?!

I did dual boarding on Swoop last week in YHM. Ramp at the front, stairs at the back. We all used a single jetbridge to de-board at YHZ.

WS used to bridge load front and back at YVR. I donít know why they stopped.
