So yesterday I was flying from Long Island (ISLIP) back to Chicago Midway. I was luckey enough to be flying on business, and upgraded to the new business select fare the same day that the program started.
As I was getting ready to go with my A-1 boarding pass, I look back and see NO ONE ELSE in the A-1 to A-15 pods. So basicly folks, SWA has killed your and my chance at getting a A boarding pass by 15 if there are business select customers / A listers on your flight or not.
One other thing, I as a business traveler dont like having to purchace a higher fare ticket to travel on business. One reason I used SWA so much, is I could get a lower fare than the big 3, get to the airport a few hours early, stand in line and GET THE SEAT I WANT. Now to do that I have to pay just as much as I would to travel on United or American, where I CAN PICK MY SEAT.
Another thing, If I pay more money and buy a business select fair and board first; now I have to worrie about where all these kids and familys are going to sit! Nothing better than paying the most for my tickets and having to have little Johnie kick and scream behinds me. LET THE BOARD FIRST SO I DONT HAVE TO SIT NEXT TO THEM!!!!
SWA, just one more business traveler you have lost due to all this garbage! Go back to the way it used to be, and I will be on a SWA flight in a heartbeat.
