I can only imagine the mad rush to be the first one on board to cram all their carry-ons into the overhead bins, hogging the aisles so no one can get past. Customer service has gone to hell!

Have not been pivy to this yet but it must be utter cayous with no agents to help control the mad dash to be first !!

OK, people i think we need to think about this more. Isn't there still assigned seating? In that case there will be no "mad dash". If they were smart with the system they would have an automated attendant calling boarding groups. IF your boarding pass doesn't have that boarding group you get a big fat ERROR, go back and sit down. I've seen some REALLY bad boarding processing on very full flights. Worse than the WN "mad dash". I think this is a great idea.
