When I've fling for business and dressed accordingly and paying full fare I want assigned seats because I may arrive latee and don't want to sit next to kids etc. When I'm on vacation its different.
Please consider something like this-Make the front let's say five rows a virtual first class cabin
1. Full fare passengers get assigned seats in the virtual first class cabin and board first.
2. Remainign passengers board in exisitng groups.
3. If all seatsin rows behind row six are filled other passengers can take front seats.
I'm sure you guys could simplfy this and it would encourage business flying while not getting rid of the unassgned seating
