I agree with Anon above. While new things are lovely, Southwest is adding yet another pale lager to a selection of pale lagers. How about a good microbrewed pale ale, hefewiezen, dark lager, or something? I would love to see Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA, Magic Hat #9, Flying Dog Old Scratch Amber Lager, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, or some other microbrew onboard! It's like choosing to paint a room and only being able to choose from light blue, perriwinkle blue, robin's egg blue, sky blue, and ice blue. All slight variations of the same thing, which, in the case of light lager, is gross. And if it's a can vs. bottle thing, you could at least go with Yuengling or Sam, which I believe both come in cans...
I get that most Americans only drink light lager and nothing else, but for those of us with taste buds Yuengling/Sam Adams and Dogfish/Sierra Nevada would be great additions! Even if it was $6 or $1 with a drink coupon, I would pay it gladly for a choice of beer that tastes good. Please?

In response to Sam Smith, as long as you checkin online 24 hours beforehand and get yourself an "A" Boarding Pass, you WILL get a good seat. I guarantee it. Heck, I've been the last "A" person to board and still gotten my pick of many desirable seats in all parts of the plane. Even the time I was late and went in the middle of the B's, I still got a decent seat. So really, as long as you plan to checkin 24 hours beforehand, you really have nothing to worry about.
And just as a fun tidbit, Monday I took two flights on Southwest, exploring Columbus for a day thanks to an amazing DING! fare. When I bought lunch in Columbus, my total was $7.37. Coincidence?

Why has BWI lost two destinations, and lost flights on other routes? Every time I fly out of BWI, no matter where I'm going, the plane seems to be at or near capacity! Why would you reduce your presence there? I was expecting NEW destinations from BWI this time around, not less!
And I think most of us can agree that assigned seating is something we do not want to see from the airline we LUV. Personally, I fly Southwest for three main reasons, one being the many flights available from BWI, two being the low fares, and three because I don't have to worry about being required to sit next to someone I would prefer not to sit next to just because thats where my seat was assigned. Please please please keep open seating, people that are stupid enough to enjoy being told where to sit can continue to pay for it on legacy carriers, but keep Southwest with what has made it successful. if it aint broke, don't fix it , man.
