Pre-boarding for medical really helps!

Active Member

I have signficant anxiety with flying.  I get heart papitations, rapid breathing, and sweating when i fly.  It REALLY helps if i can sit close to a door.  My therapist says its a control thing...when i sit close to the door i feel more in control.  I always ask the desk agent for pre-boarding for a special seating request and SWA always accomodates my request.  This is so helpful and I genuinely appreicate their effort.  I love SWA!

This is a great reminder to people that not every preboarder has a visible condition and folks shouldn't assume just because someone can walk easily down the jet bridge they are abusing preboarding.  Thanks for sharing!
