Sitting Together

Aviator C

I am a lifelong fan of equity and common sense.  Let me first say that I conduct myself within the realm of "reasonable expectations".  For instance:


  • I don't go to a steakhouse and then ask for a vegan menu.
  • I don't go to a Kia dealership and look for a new Mercedes.
  • I don't go to Starbucks and look for a cheap cup of coffee.
  • I don't fly on Southwest and expect to choose my seat.


Today we are living in times where everyone wants the world to be reformatted around their view of what is right, regardless of what they have chosen.  This thinking, and behavior, will only continue to the breaking point when a business has to raise prices to combat the constant defenses to their operating policies.


Southwest needs to continue with open seating and if anyone wants to "sit together" after the seats are mostly taken, they can exit the plane and receive a refund of their fare, then, choose another airline with assigned seats.


Problem solved.
