Air India boarding groups??

Anyone have an idea how Air India does boarding apart from First/Business etc going first

Is it like most airlines from back of plane to first or anything different?

Thanks for the input

I'm in India now and just took a domestic AI flight a few days ago. We were in business class so I didn't pay close attention to boarding after that, but I did hear them announcing row numbers for boarding. It seemed to start with the back of the plane and move forward.

For reference, this was an A320 departing from DEL.

sometimes they do but most of the time they don't....it also depends which airport you are flying from....staff at some airports are more particular than others....

it certainly does....they will likely follow the 'boarding from the back of the plane' rule....
