We were heading home on flight 162 on 1/23 and patiently waited at the front of group 5 boarding. When our group was finally called, people jammed ahead of the queue that had been patiently waiting by going through the priority lane. When we complained to the gate agent she said letting people board out of order was easier than arguing. REALLY? That’s your job lady, so if you’re not going to enforce the boarding order then you’re sending a clear message that American condones bullies who have absolutely no respect for order. As an Aadvantage member I was disgusted with that response. Maybe next time I should simply be as rude as others were. American Airlines apparently condones free for all’s.
