Revisiting Priority Boarding for Families

A few months ago, United announced that they were ending pre-boarding for families. This caused quite a stir, and while I generally agree with the decision, I figured I'd throw it out to you all to see what the general consensus was.

Well the votes are in, and here's what you all had to say:

Question: Should families with small children get to pre-board for flights?

  • Yes, they should get to board after frequent flyers, first class, etc., but before everyone else - 39%
  • Yes, they should get to board before everyone else - 33%
  • No, they should board along with their designated boarding group - 27%

Mixed results, to say the least.

Practically speaking, I don't know that these families would notice much of a difference between boarding after frequent flyers, first class, etc. and boarding with their designated group, but I could be wrong. Family travelers who fly United, have you noticed much of a difference since this change came into effect?

Oh, and make sure to cast your vote in the next poll, which you can find on the right hand side of the page.
