But I find it interesting that contract law appears to trump any aviation law. Once the victims park their bums they appear to be invulnerable. So being a bit naughty, what is a passenger's status after passing the gate, before getting on board? Clarity is essential as I fly 50,000 people every year and I'd like to know what is legal and what is not.

PM, Your last sentence has me astounded, you are a PIC and you are asking on here what are the legal ramifications.
Why so? Operating crew are not lawyers and the query is about pax not even on board!!.
