If you change the open seating, I am "doomed". I am a Contemporary Christian Singer and I "tour" on Southwest 12 months of the year. I am flying much!! 2006 is my 17th year on the road!! My problem (if you need to call it that) is I had a heart attack in 1998 and then another one in 2004....to add to this, I am EXTREMELY claustrophobic (I have a medi alert card) and Southwest Airlines has taken such good care of me, even allowing me to continue my touring (I'm still young I just have a birth defect in my heart), DUE TO THE OPEN SEATING!!! You see, I am a pre-board passenger EVERYTIME. The gate agents are made aware of my condition and I ALWAYS get the BULK HEAD SEAT IN THE FRONT AND IN THE AISLE. This is the ONLY way I am able to fly with out MUCH discomfort...my heart also affects my legs, so I need to stretch them straight out in front of me several times during the flight. My touing is also my means of income...if I don't fly to the concert, I have no way to pay my bills and survive. PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE THE OPEN SEATING, I JUST DO NOT KNOW WHAT I WILL DO. PLEASE RESOND.
God BLess you,
