I was wondering if someone from SW could shed some light on being a A-List traveler? I travel at least twice a week for work and earn points to use for personal use, which has come in handy. However, I have noticed something. I am an A-List Preferred member, but I only get to board after all the A's have. For all other airlines (which I use as well depending on Southwest's availability and time to get somewhere) and have status with them as well but, I get to board earlier. The odd thing, is with other airlines I have an assigned seat. However, with SW seats are "pick one once onboard". By having an A-List status, shouldn't it be an recognized by allowing those members to board prior to the "A's"? With this status, I should not have to feel compelled to purchase an early boarding pass, since I spend well more than $15-$30 per week on airline tickets with SW. Could someone from SW shed some light on Southwest's thought on this.
