First off, Preboarders are not a "nightmare" to those who are patient and considerate of their fellow travellers who may need a little extra help. Think about this for a second, your asking the folks who have the most mobility challenges to work their way all the way to the back and all the way to the front. By relegating the preboarders to the back of the plane you could slow the overall boarding / deplaning process because they would require even more time to get all the way on and all the way off. Also, SWA does not have assigned seating, so telling a certain group of passengers where they have to sit flies in the face of the company culture and is unfair to those passengers. Ultimately, Tommy, I think your idea may stem from frustrations born from a false sense of entitlement that as a A passenger you shouldn't have to wait for anyone. Be patient with preboarders, for one day you may be one of them.
