I've been flying Southwest for many years and one of the best things that I've liked about Southwest is open seating. I fly quite
frequently for business as well as pleasure. Because of business needs, I have to book flights most of the time in less than 7
days. By having assigned seats, I would most likely be forced to sit in the "back of the bus". Assigned seating would not be
any different from other airlines, that's one of the unique things about Southwest is that they are different by offering open seating. Because Southwest doesn't fly to a lot of desinations that other airlines (ie, Continental) service, I have still flown with Southwest
and then taken a rental car to get to my original desination. Airlines pricing are very competitive and I can fly other airlines for the
same price, by having assigned seating, I would most likely use other airlines.
Please listen to your faithful customers.
