Re: Easyjet Plus card - is it worth it?

If only!

Last week we arrived at Geneva 2 hours before the flight. The Easyjet queue stretched from entrance 5 back to entrance 3. We stood patiently in line carrying a 3 month old baby. By the time we reached check-in we were told we were 2 minutes late. We were not the only ones that day that missed their flights because there is absolutely no management of the single queue for all flights. Of course, we then had to pay another 200CHF and luckily were able to get the next flight.

I guess speedy boarding would have prevented this miserable experience.


On the way back, we were made to queue on the stairs and aircraft gangway for 45 minutes because the plane was not ready to board. Not much fun with a baby either. The speedy boarders suffered the same fate though.
Nope!

Speedy boarding means you are called first in the departure lounge to board the plane. It's nothing to do with check/bag drop prior to security.

I had this experience at Geneva 2 years ago on the Saturday before Christmas. All we needed was to drop our bag off. 2.5 hours early meant we did it. They were calling flights to bring passengers to the front of the queue, which was a bit self-defeating as it meant a longer wait for those still in the queue, until they too had to be brought to the front of the queue...
