According to the patent document:

“Transferring a payload in a commercial aeroplane requires that the aeroplane is immobilised on the ground.

This is the case when boarding passengers, but also when loading their luggage, or again when loading freight. In addition, settling passengers in their respective seats in the aeroplane may lengthen the aeroplane’s period of immobilisation.”
