Um, does it really matter when you get on the plane? It isn't like the people who get on first necessarily get off first.
Or arrive 15 minutes earlier than the rest of the plane??
ETA: The only plane swaps I've been involved in was when one plane was mechanically bad for some reason and luckily it was the last flight out for the night so they had another plane they could swap it for.
We all looked so forlorn when the plane pulled away from the gate without us and they hadn't told us what was going on, yet.
