It is admirable that participants to this board demonstrate ownership, pointing out similarities to prior posts. However, dismissal of ideas because they are unresolved or perceived by swa to be tolerable status quo is lazy. Carry on is a catalyst for air rage and swa and passengers should be motivated to reduce this baggravation. With increasing full flights and continued deference to air carrier profit by passenger space reductions, we should be open to any way to reduce passenger ingress\egress hindrances. I give no credence to idea that increasing checked baggage use by passengers will disturb swa business model. If that were a problem for swa, they would not offer two free bags on flights. I personally do as much as possible to plan ahead and be a minimalist in travel, for my own peace of mind and allowing space for fellow passengers. Decency and consideration cannot be mandated as many think they are winning only when they game the system for perceived personal convenience. With that becoming more prevalent, swa should make incentives for individual acts of kindness.

Often the most cumbersome part of boarding and exiting is people stowing/reclaiming carry on. Charging for carry on is just the inverse of free checked bags. What if swa would reward checking bags by once per day rewarding passengers who board hands free with that flight leg refunded to their charge/payment source? We all should know we are video recorded. Everyone would benefit by less impedance in the aisles and chance for a free flight. If SWA marketed it well, I think less aisle and overhead clutter would result. Please?
