Not applicable

Why have you stopped posting comments to your new Early Bird Check-in policy? By the way it's a very BAD idea and after many years of being loyal to SW I'll be looking harder at other airlines now!

Hi Craig, as you can see we haven't stopped posting comments, but we don't sit here 24 hours a day just waiting for comments to come in. It is a moderated blog, so we have to review the comments before posting. BTW, I saw your earlier post, and we don't publish e-mail addresses for individual Customers or Employees here at the blog.
