Back to front: Even windows, odd windows, even middle seats, odd middle seats, even aisle seats, odd aisle seats. No blockages, no climbing over people.

Anyone with too much baggage gets kicked off the flight. Now that’s a deterrent!

Would only work in theory, would be stressful to implement and families being split up etc. etc. but very efficient!

I support this one!

And it is workable with a numbered boarding system like southwest have – each passenger has a number and passengers organise themselves in numerical order very effectively! No need for families to be split if they are given sequential numbers that very slightly alter the optimal pattern.

AND as a business cabin or status passenger, I personally would much rather board *last*. It makes no sense to me to be sat for even longer with everyone brushing past – the boarding privilege should be the a abilty to waltz on last and still have baggage room above your seat.
