I can't speak for other airlines but I used to work for one a while back. I was friends with a guy that got paid an obscene amount of money just to find ways to make operations more efficient. One of his projects was finding the fastest way to get the herd on the plane. He had the airports try a variety of methods and crunched a lot of data for it. If my old brain serves me correctly he found out the most consistent way to load people fast was to split it into 3 and do back, front, middle or front, back, middle... something like that.What doesn't make sense is loading planes from the front to the back.
If you load from back to front, wouldn't loading be faster? No one waiting for the people in the aisle putting their bags away for you to get back to your seat.
