Very close to current UA boarding process. Of course, UA's "Group 1" is actually "Group 6," because they "pre-board" five separate groups before they even get to "Group 1."

And I would think that the two pilot seats are made to far stronger specs than passenger seats. And are far heavier.

This would mitigate 14 179-seaters, or the loss of 2,506 seats, with a gain of 19 126-seaters, or a gain of 2,394 seats. Not horrible. One plane short.
