    Smile The airline announced for the people to board the aircraft

    The airline announced for the people to board the aircraft that were seated in the first twenty rows.


    Does the above sound right? Does it mean the same as the following? Thanks.

    I would write the first sentence this way:

    A spokesman for the airline announced that the people who were to be seated in the first twenty rows should broad the aircraft.

    The second sentence is not the same as the first because it makes it sound as if the people are already seated on board the aircraft.
