I understand that SWA needs to stem the losses and selling the middle seat will help, But they want bodies and not just revenue. Here's why. I tried to purchase two seats so I did not have to sit 12 inches from a potentially COVID positive passenger. Because I was not a person of size, I cannot do so. I don't want a reduced fare and I don't want an empty row. I just want the opportunity to distance myself as much as I am able to do before November 30. My offer makes complete sense to a business trying to recover from billion dollar losses. They get revenue for two seats while carrying only the weight of one body. I agree that air on a plane is safer than most businesses but the re-circulation data does not address sitting 12 inches from a stranger. You can contract COVID-19 from someone - even a friend who sits next to you, everyone wearing a mask - who is unknowingly positive. Come on SWA - please live up to all the ads and posters you spend millions on touting how you are consumer friendly.
