There’s one simple solution... just don’t simultaneously board both lanes (and don’t allow those not entitled). Stop whenever there is a priority passenger. VA does it and it works. The frustrating thing is that it is so simple.

Same sex intercourse is still technically illegal in Singapore. And plenty of that still happens in Dubai. Human rights in Singapore frequently get overlooks by westerners because on the surface everything is fine. If you’re going to use a country’s laws to avoid stop overs, then yo...

because I always feel 'secure' and 'comfortable' when passing through the security theatre of TSA. Its not like there would be a security risk if you were taking someone else's flight for them, you still have to go through security. I'd much prefer our current system as long as security screening...
