    BMD boards here. The PREM is for Perfect, Really, in Every Manner.

  5. 5.
    Zone 1 - Silver Medallions and Delta AmEx holders
    It's the last of the good zones, but sometimes the first of the bad. This is, contrary to popular belief, not actually the first zone to board.

    Zone 3 - Normal people, front half of plane
    Mostly consists of stressed out spouses yelling at one another because there's no more space in the overhead bins.

    There's no Zones 4-11 since the dark days, nobody knows why.
