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.
