#1. Despite giving up his seat to a customer, Herb is still able to make it to the annual meeting on time. #2. Look up in the sky! It's a bird... no, it's a plane... well, it's a plane, but it's also...

"With assigned seating, I could be inside the plane enoying a nice JB on the rocks." or "Our Chairman does his darndest to ensure we arrive on-time." or "This is not what we mean by, "Ding, you are now free to move about the country."

#1. I am out here because I lost an arm-wrestling match. #2. I was a minute late, and they had already shut the doors. But I grabbed onto the plane and will make it home on time. #3. This is better than riding a motorcycle. #4. The flight attendants caught me smoking in the bathroom again.

Suggestion: Instead of charging for ailse seats and emergency row seats, try charging for large on board bags that passengers jam into the overhead bins. The roll type bags are becoming a standard rather than the last minute boarding which it was originally intended for. I believe there are many bags that would not fit into those "measured" boxes that used to be at the boarding gates.
