Final Boarding Call

Updated: 2017-03-27.

Final boarding call is the last call for passengers to board the aircraft before the jet bridge closes and the flight departs, leaving late passengers stranded. However, gate agents typically will announce several of these “final” calls, simply because they want even the few penultimate final boarding calls to sound equally urgent; if you hear this once, the situation (getting to the gate) might not be as dire as it sounds – but don’t risk it!
