Since coming back a week ago, I have found A380s impossible to turnaround on time at an attached stand and large flights in general impossible to turnaround on time at remote stands due to the time it takes to deboard and board. All the services are done on time.
The only thing I think I can improve is the boarding area. What are other people’s boarding arrangements like?
I have 6 auto desks per large gate and the boarding just seems so slow. I timed a few of my departures and the 6 desks allow 194 people per hour to board. On the other hand, one of my A380s deboards at a rate of 320 people per hour. For one Maple flight 547 people took 1hr 42 minutes or 1.7 hrs to deboard and the boarding of 455 people too 2hr20min or 2.34 hrs to board. Also, cleaning cannot finish if deboarding is not complete. It seems that cabin cleaning gets to between 26% and 36% complete while deboarding, then waits for the deboarding to finish even when 2 cabin cleaning trucks are on the plane.
