Gate Agents Enforcing Rules - Hallelujah and Hooray!!!

Aviator C

On recent flights, I've seen the gate agents enforce the rules and do so with success!


Family Boarding - unless the child us under the age of seven, no go.  And now, the rule is that for each child under the age of seven, ONE ADULT and only one adult boards with the child.  No more aunt, uncle, brother, 20-something kids and grandparents all going on together.


Carry On Items - now you can have only one piece of luggage and one personal items.  Anything separate counts and you either consolidate, throw away or check the items.  


Item Count - no more sneaking on two pieces of luggage.  One luggage item that meets the size requirements and one "personal item".


Thank you Southwest for following the rules that you wrote.
