I am sure the're are more people for assigned seating than have been posted. I am one of them. I have flown with my kids and been expected to sit far apart because no one was kind enough to trade seats thus making me have to request to get off plane. I flew three times in the last three months and it's always the same; People cutting the line & being told "this seat is saved". People should not be allowed to Save seats! Have your whole party board together or don't get on. I found a seat but my small suitcase was 7 rows back! Why should this happen? I'm sorry if I just don't see how assigned seats can cost more or cause delays. I only started flying SWA because of the airport location other than that I prefer an airline that gives the the peace of mind that I will not have to deal with these inconveniences.

I had banned Southwest about 8 yrs ago because of your no assigned seating policy. This caused my family alot distress when
my children were expected to sit several rows from me. My daughter was 4 and my son was 6. The people next to me would not exchange seats and I had to resort to threatening to get off the plane before I could get any help! Would it cost so much more for
you to incorporate advanced seating into your plan? Although my children are older now I opt to fly on airlines that allow you to
choose your seats in advance. When people go on a family vacation they want to sit with their family not strangers,
especially kids! I fly out of JFK on a different airline instead of Islip which is more convrnient for this reason. Please think about it.
