I am the Mommy traveling with the Daddy and 3 children under age 6. We LUV the open seating and early boarding for families with small children. We sit in the last row of the plane, near the restrooms and the very latest people who got the very last choice of seats - so they are grateful to be on the plane. If you assign our seats in advance, it is unlikely that we will get the three and two seats together that we want. (Who wants to sit with my 2-year-old?? Any volunteers??) It's also unlikely that we would be in the back of the plane to let the "grown-ups" have peace toward the front. PLEASE keep the open seating!!! We only fly Southwest!!!!!!
