While I am perfectly willing to take responsibility for my own space at my own expense, the airlines need to take responsibility to provide a safe clean airplane to travel in. Southwest, I commend you taking steps to do that but it needs to go further and assisting customers the options to further clean their own space would help. I agree it costs money for SW and the cost to business is at risk, but losing business or going out of business is much more costly. Add $5.00 to each ticket , provide the extra few minutes to board and provide proper clean wipes. Is $5.00 worth your own safety and health?? It is to me. Plus I can't find sanitizing wipes anywhere, all sold out, I am sure the airlines can find wipes. My husband and I both have compromised health issues, his more important than mine (he just had a liver transplant) and wouldn't mind one bit to pay a little extra so we had the comfort to fly. Right now I do not feel comfortable flying because of germs. Some may say we should stay home, I totally agree, but our home is in Florida and we are receiving health care in Southwest Pennsylvania and need to get home. Flying is not just for pleasure, it is sometimes a necessity. SW is our 1st choice in airlines. One more note, I am sure there are some legalities tied into what they should/could do......I am not a lawyer.
