I have been flying Southwest for about 15 years. The thing I really like about Southwest is the open seating. At the time I board the
plane, I can make my choice of where I want to sit. If it is a long flight and I do not need to get off quickly, I will generally sit in the back,
if it is a short flight and I need to get off quickly, I will sit in the front. Also I may sit on one side or the other depending on which side
the sun is shinning.
If you move to assigned seating, I will not have the choices I have now in seating and Southwest will be just like any of the other
carriers so I won't have a real reason to fly just on Southwest.
All of us who like the open seating have not made comments before as we had no reason. Now I guess it is time we all speak up.
