Delta Airlines wants to change the way people board its flights.

Starting next month, Delta is getting rid of ‘zone’ boarding.  Instead, it’s turning toward a new process based on ticket type and color.  Passengers that need extra time will board first, followed by premium passengers, then its first class guests.  Other preferred passengers will then board next, followed by economy passengers.

Delta says the new process should lessen delays and lead to faster boarding.
