Really terrible experience. After being called an hour before boarding to the gate which meant that I had to stop working on my laptop. I waited until the priority queue was short to ensure I could get onto plane quickly, we were checked in and then was stopped just outside boarding gate, had to bunch up for an hour like cattle standing while the plane was being prepared. I asked the hostess what was the point...we could have sit inside. No explanation just a redicilous way of treating people like cattle.
