If you’re wondering how you get put into that boarding zone when you fly… it’s complicated.
Zones are decided by complex mixes of what “club” you are in, how many miles you’ve flown, if you’ve spent a bunch of money with the airlines…and the list goes on. United puts people in 19 different categories just to figure it out!
But wait…. American Airlines has 22 categories and then there’s Delta. They have a staggering 27 categories that go into the formula of how we are zone boarded.
So, next time you hop on a plane, just enjoy the trip and forget the math that goes into it. Source: Business Insider
