Gateway: stand or not stand

Often at airports you can see the picture: even before the announcement of boarding, people begin to crowd at the exit …

Why is this happening and is it worth it to fight?
Gatelice
In Europe, passengers who create such lines are called Gatelice (literally – “lice at the gate”). The problem is that they fill with themselves the whole space. Because of this, there may be problems landing on other flights if such crowds are too large. Another extreme is that families with children or the elderly can suffer from impatient passengers.

In social networks, such queues are considered a real problem and even express dissatisfaction about this. In the end, everyone has tickets, which means everyone can take a seat on the flight.
Why are people crowding
It turns out that everything was to blame – voluminous hand luggage. For example, low-cost airlines have limited shelf space for bags and suitcases. Consequently, the first to board, most likely, will be able to pack their things next. The rest will have to look for a place in the cabin.

According to psychologists, it may be in our upbringing. There is an opinion in society that you need to be the first everywhere so that you get all the best. Some people are influenced by the psychology of the crowd: if everyone is standing in line, then we need to.

Carrier Easy Jet even recalls cases when in 2017 passengers pretended to be helpless to be provided with a wheelchair. Then the staff drove them on a plane out of turn.
